Looking at the pix on flickr, I see your tractor has the parking brake lever on left side. I assume you/it is a British/non U.S. model. Overall it looks good for its age. A few seals will need looking at sometime in the future depending on your needs/demands such as the wheel bearing seals all show some signs of wear/grime/leaks. The most urgent leak I see is what looks like a fuel leak(clear looking) that is accumulating on bottom of eng. We had a'64 model the hood opened from the right side, the battery swung out, and at times the starter lever sometimes would require you to stand on it to engage the starter. You have some kind of extra lift apparatus on the rear that I have never seen. The grime around the pto looks normal for the age of the tractor. The exhaust spots under the hood are probably from slobber, a diesel will do this if not worked frequently. I would install the muffler soon to preserve my hearing. Looks like a good score. Manuals would be well advised.

your tractor came with a cold start aid that will feed fuel to the manifold. this can leak and dibble fuel into the engine and make it smoke and leak... My superdexta had a valve to cut off fuel to the cold start line. Make sure your cold start line is cut off and not leaking. Need muffler. need to cover exhaust and muffler so it does not rain into the exhaust. You could have a leak on the injectors, especially the rubber or cloth covered return lines. You could have a leaky valve cover.

These are great tractors in everyway except for no power steering.. Clean it up and take care of it. and as said, change oil in engine and also the injector pump.
