Thanks for everyones help!!!!!!!!!!! I finally got the tractor running and starting with very little effort. I got this free from a freind After sitting for two year out in the weather(last owner). I had time to work on it.I cleaned the points,gas tank and carb. I also put a new condensor on it cost me 8.00 and some time. Now i'm in love with it. can anyone tell me what type of fluids I need to drain and fill with new.

I'm speaking in ignorance of your particular model tractor, but since no one else has replied yet... If it has a bevel gear box in the tractor midsection, check that first thing. We bought a used piece and assumed there was oil "in dat dere ting." Well, it was nearly dry and ultimately resulted in ripping the machine in two to replace the bevel gears. Also check the transmission fluid in the rear axle housing. I would recommend replacing both if you have the time - gets any moisture out that could possibly be in there. From the school of hard knocks, Tom

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
