Photo '47 MW Chor-Trac Alive & Kickin' Again

I picked this up last year and finally got her going. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOOJ1dw4H58 This tractor had been sitting under a lean-to for probably 20+ years before I got it. I dropped the "pan", cleaned out all the thick nasty goo, disassembled and thoroughly cleaned the oil pump. Disassemble the carburetor and gave it a thorough cleaning. It didnt have the original fuel tank with it and I had recently got this large Clinton tank that was still nice and shiny inside. I added a spare glass sediment bowl I had. The rope start is one I put together with an antique white porcelain door knob.
I plan on building a sulky for it next and will probably take it to the Lathrop Antique Tractor Show next year to ride around the grounds.

It's running a little rich. It shouldn't misfire like it does.
