Just a little update. I've got everything just about done on the M and she is really coming together. Had a hell of a time getting the rear wheels off, after jacking it up and sitting precariously on jack stands, but I was careful and ended up cutting a few bolts rather than trying to pry on them too hard.
I'm just finishing up the wiring, and need to find a new set of rear rims and tires. The Corona V has put that on hold at the moment, as the wife doesn't want me making any big purchases right now. So, she'll sit for a few more months. The guy doing the tinwork for me hasn't gotten it finished yet anyway, so I might as well just sit and take my time.

Here are some updated photos.
Thanks,
Bill

I have another question about the drawbar. Where it mounts to the tractor under the belly, is that hole in the drawbar supposed to be oblong, so it can pivot to different locations on the back of the tractor, or is mine just worn from years of use? You can see in that last photo that it will pivot almost all the way to the ground. I know the pin is just a little worn, but the hole in the drawbar itself is really oval. I may weld it back up a bit and drill it back out to take some of the slop out of it.
Thanks,
Bill

I'm not the final authority on that question, but I'd say the answer is round. Hasn't the hole in the back end already been repaired?
