The flywheel fan and tin work that is missing is listed on ebay now.

Thanks for the info. I have the tin parts and fan although the cylinder cover tin is so flimsy I'm going to reproduce it in thicker material. No original carb, using an old Briggs updraft. What I don't have is the dog nut for the engine hand crank. Seems like the dog nut originally fastened to the flywheel with three 1/4 inch screws.
The wheel hubs on mine are apparently not original. They are 5 by 4.5 bolt pattern and I stuck a couple old car wheels on them having nothing else at hand.

That little cast elbow thing was all it ever had for exhaust. There was a top on the battery box originally. Doesn't look like it would take much to get it going. I think pulling the oil pump, cleaning it out, and making sure it works first would be a good idea though.

I picked up my grandfathers Standard Walsh Here's some pictures while it was still on the trailer We are on vacation this week so maybe I can get a better idea on what I'm going to need to make it run again over the weekend Looks like the exhaust is missing I did spray some PBlastet on the plug looks like it's been in there for a long timeimage.jpeg
Are you bringing it to jacktown in October?

The tag should be on the gas tank bracket facing the handles. If the tag is missing, the number should be stamped in the front around the fill plug. The exhaust casting that mounts to the cylinder is all they ever had originally. From what I can see you're not missing anything there.

Located a crank dog for my Standard T. Passed on the ebay Zenith original carb since the Briggs carb works fine needing only a throttle control hookup, My ST is a 1938 model w/o governor which may not matter, but this tractor will have to earn it's garage space by being useful. Have ordered a Brush Grubber and plan to make a snowplow attachment bracket that can also take the Grubber on a stick. Contemplating some sort of towed grader for gravel driveway work. 14 acre property is on a hill with about 10 acres rented for farming leaving a sizable "playground" needing maintenance.
I'm very anxious to get the individual wheel brakes cleaned up and working to see how effective they really are. I ran it a very short time steering with the handles only and the amount of muscle it took leaves me wondering if the differential is working correctly.
No plan to do any tilling, cultivating or mowing with it since those jobs are covered by other equipment.
