Why would it have to be just on the "M series of tractors?"

If you can work on an M, you can work on an Oliver 88, or a Massey 44, or an AC WD45 a JD G, or pretty much any gasoline powered tractor.
The only differences are the location of components, and the number of cylinders. In other words, if you know what a distributor cap looks like you should be able to locate and identify the distributor cap on any of the listed tractors with little trouble.

Heck, if you know your way around a small block V8 you should be able pretty well prepared to work on an M.

There are vocational classes available on internal combustion engines.

Exactly, that's what I would hope to learn. I love all tractors, but right now my main focus is the 'M'. Life is just too short.

I've really never had the privilege of tearing into any kind of automotive type engine. The problem never presented itself. Nor have I ever done any kind of major automotive type repair. I'm as green as they come. The thought of automotive mechanics always intimidated me. Sorry, that's just the way I'm carved out. But slowly, I'm learning, and so far it's been fun.

With full respect sir.

I did"nt mean just the farmalls but all makes of old tractors. Several years ago I bought an 8N and hauled it home in pieces on a trailer. The motor was seized up. I squirted penetrating oil in all the cylinders. After I got it put together I started rocking it while in gear and got the motor loosened. After doing a few other things to it, it started real easy.
