You have a great looking Super A. I hope mine turns out half that nice. I maybe getting a bit ahead of myself here. I have not installed the radiator yet and only run the tractor for a few seconds each time. I did flush out the engine with cleaning fluid, varsol to hopefully remove all the sludge. I removed the pan and sprayed everthing the best I could. I put a new filter and guage on the tractor. I may not have run the tractor long enough to fill the filter bowl. I just did not know how long it takes to fill the filter, or does it pick up pressure before the bowl is full.

There should be pipe plugs around that oil filter.
I would install the oil gauge there for the time being to see if there's oil pressure, you may need a pipe reducing bushing in order to install the gauge. Most of the gauges are 1/8 pipe threads. We used a lot of gauges at work when I worked for the US government. We tested all the
vehicles for the US Army. Some were the M1A1 Abrams Tank, Bradley Fighting Vehicle, M60 Tank
and we ran drawbar pull and cooling tests on just about everything. I was even drafted in 1953 and was rehired after I was discharged. Hal
