Hey, just hauled in my uncle"s 1954 WD-45, sn 175910 for restoration. It sat under a shed for about 20 years before being moved to my lot about 2 years ago. Engine stuck, needs a lot of work, sheet metal in pretty good shape. Im a Farmall man, gonna need a lot of advice on this restoration. This tractor was the work horse of my uncle"s dairy farm, I remember it appearing huge when I was a kid. It somehow seems to have shrunk some in 40 years!

Blow out the cylinders with air to make sure they are dry. Then FILL them with ATF and let it sit for how ever long you want. Doing that might pop it free or at least will not hurt it any. As for the term restore I hate that word because to truelly restore one you have to bring it back to what is was when new which means ALL spec have to meet factory specs. But if you find you need parts I have a WD45 engine laying in my shop it ran when pulled but was down on power and need rebuilt but it still spins over

Here's one that was bought new in 1954 by the original owner and his daughter had it painted for her dad as a Christmas gift. Our daughter was born in 1954 at Ft Bragg NC when I was in the Army. Hal
