Thanks for the input guys. The plan is to power-wash it all down for the wife to paint. She wants to feel helpful and she helped paint the tractors on her dad's farm growing up. So I don't think I'll be stopping her from a new paint job on it. Besides that we don't have kids yet and it's nice to have projects to work on together. IE: I do mechanical and she'll work on aesthetics. Besides that I'll have a bunch of the cylinders off and it will give her access to paint the nooks and cranny's. I need a new fuel shut off valve is the first thing to make it run without a constant gas drip. I found them on ebay for $30. Do I have to pull the gas tank to get the new valve on?
Second is what should I get to replace the broken pin in terms of steel???

I have attached a link to a pictorial/tutorial I wrote on rebuilding the existing valve rather than buying one of those replacement valves that will start leaking soon after you install it. No, the valve can be replaced with the tank installed on the tractor but your loader will make it an extremely tough job. It may be easier to remove the hood and tank.
