Pulling the spark plugs and having a look in the cylinder is a good idea. As stated by others, a stuck valve can cause some resistance, as can junk in the clutch pulley. It won't hurt anything to shoot a little lube in the cylinder, if it's relatively clean inside. Try rolling it over with the plugs out, pull the clutch cover off and see if you can detect if something is dragging in the clutch. Take the valve cover off and look at the valvetrain to make sure it is moving freely. I wouldn't be to forceful until you know what is causing the problem. An Operaters Manual and Parts Book will be very helpful to you. If you are interested, I can roughly estimate when your tractor was built from the serial number and a little math, and tell you whether it is truly a 45 or 46 model. I'm guessing from what you said that it is between 555334 and 558817. I gather info on letter series tractors, in particular model "A". No pressure, and e-mail is open if you prefer.

Welcome to the forum and JD. Hope you get it going without too much cost or trouble..........especially the cost part.

Thanks for the info and the welcome. The Serial Number is 554xxx. Didn"t put all the numbers in that is what the x"s are for. We put it in high gear, clutch engaged. Husband pushed on the tire and engine turned with little resistance and no noise. I guess now all we need to really worry about is electrical and fuel system. I have purchase all manuals off of e-bay.

Glad to hear you got it rolling around okay. Once you get your service manuals you'll want to check out the different procedures for keeping them in good repair.
Your tractor is a 1945 model by any of the reliable lists available. If I split your number in the middle, 554500 would have likely been built fairly close to 5/12/45, as a pretty late 45 model.
Enjoy your tractor.
