Ok folks, sorry for the long delay. Your collective advice was right on the money! Did tune up including new plugs, points and condenser, distributor cap and rotor. Changed oil and filter, topped up coolant (just above the top radiator hose inlet) There is a small baffle in the radiator at that level.Now starting and running fine! This is a working tractor. Never been garaged. I have been careful to keep it covered when not in use, especially when rain or snow is forecast. That said there were a couple times last fall when I did not cover it and we got heavy rain. So a little water got into the crankcase through a faulty oil filler cap. The "cap" was a piece of a round tree branch that I stuck in the filler pipe when I lost the original cap in the woods. So now i see that i also have water in the hydraulic oil, no doubt from the same rain. The boot on the gear shift is in bad shape so that was inviting the water in. A classic lesson, look for the simplest stuff first! Thanks again. Jerry
