I wouldn't tear the white one apart, it's a Demonstrator tractor from the mid century sales campaign.
If you can or are interested, I'd be real interested in the rest of the numbers from your tractor. Check out the link in my profile to see how your tractor falls in line with the other from the same time period.
Congrats, that one is a keeper!

Doug:

Serial number of the engine behind the carb above the oil dip stick.
Casting numbers - on each of the castings .. there are part #'s and the casting codes - see here for info How To Identify Your Tractor. The castings should all have T date codes on them.

I would send Raymond the data from both tractors which will allow him to put together a more complete database. Every one helps.

This is getting interesting.

The White tractor is more or less altogether, head and manifold off of it. This is how I know the motor is N/G, needs to go to machine shop.
The only parts I have taken off of it are the wheels and cultivators to put on the Red one.
I don't need anything else off of it to finish the Red one, which is a 1949.

Going to put the White one back together and keep it together.
Everywhere I look I see White paint, under the hood, fuel tank, inside the dash where the amp meter is, all around the rad, underneath the tractor, all the nooks and cranny's, only white paint.
Were you see the red paint, whats left of it is on the outside where you could spray it on.

And that is exactly what the folks who really collect the Demonstrator's like to see. Usually and indication of an original demo even if it was repainted by the dealer as per IH instructions after the Mid Century Campaign was over.

This is a good idea in my opinion. Seal the white one up, tuck it away and get the other one going first. Then when you have time, you can come back to the white one and spend a bit of time on it to get it right. Fill the cylinders with your favorite penetrant/oil for preservation.
When you get the chance to look the tractor over, you can post the numbers here in this thread, or you can send then in a PM, or email me at ohyeah76[at]yahoo.com

Don't forget the rear rims have mfg. dates stamped on them. To have a numbers correct Demo, you will need to find the correct rims. Since its a Demo, you may be able to sell as is or swap for a running Cub. (Money in the bank)

Tonight I started sand blasting some parts getting them ready for paint. Slow process.

Also I'm going to start another thread on the White one with pictures and numbers from it.

Still working on prepping for Paint when I have a chance, Sandblasters don't like the humid weather, tonight I put a water separator on the Blasting cabinet, helps, works better and I was surprised at how much water it collected. Without it all that water was going through the gun making the sand sticky and not come out.
I can only do the smaller parts in the cabinet, most of them are done now.

Update Today I was able to get some Red paint on it, only painted the front wheels and front wheel weights but it's a step forward.
Also I discovered a coolant leak at the bottom of the rad.

Looks like it has been repaired in the past and this leak wasn't there when I got it.
Any suggestions on what to do to fix the leak?
