I have been working on a 1935 Huber tractor for a little over a week. It had a stuck cylinder and I got it free. I took a brake from it for about a half hour tonight and changed the battery on this jetfire. The lights, 2 speed wipers, heater fan, turn signials, and even the AM radio work perfect. The gas gauge went from empty to 3/4 tank so I hope it is working correct. I bumped the starter for a very split second to see if it would engauge and it did. I don’t want to crank it till I pull the distributor, change oil and filter, and prime the oil pump. I would like to circulate oil with a drill for a long time before I crank it. I am nervous about the valves sticking and bending pushrods. With this sitting since 1974 I wonder if I should just pull the valve covers and check them?

I will put more time into this at a later time. I need to finish the Huber first.
