This is from page 34 of the 1948 Operatorís manual.

Tractors which have been placed in storage should be completely serviced before use. The following operations are recommended.
(1) Inflate the tires to recommended pressure, and remove the blocking under the tractor axles.
(2) Fill cooling system.
(3) Fill fuel tank.
(4) Check oil level in crankcase, rear end and transmission, and air cleaner. Change if dirty.
(5) Install fully charged battery.
(6) Tighten cap screws and nuts on tractor.
(7) Start engine and let idle a few minutes. Be sure the engine is receiving lubrication and that each control is functioning correctly.
(8) Drive the tractor without a load to be sure it is operating satisfactorily.
(9) Lubricate all fittings.

Page 33 has a longer list of things that should have been done to prepare the tractor for storage. The manual recommends these preparations for tractors that are used only seasonably, so tractors that will sit thru the winter months are supposed to receive this service.
