Another quick ? We have on that is pretty clean and all sheet metal off that we had running and now it's got no spark after sitting outside for a few months uncovered, which we're gonna address and fix tomorrow. Did you take any old paint off or anything? We plan to paint this one and put her up for sale. What all do I need to remove (sheet metal is already off) to paint. I'd assume spark plugs and the dizzy and starter and radiator? How did you plug up the holes? We are going to use a paint gun and already have the paint. If you wanna shoot me an email with some pointers that would be wonderful!

It wont hurt to leave the spark plugs in or out.
If you leave them in tape off the tops so your wires make good contact.
When I paint a tractor I like to remove things like wires, hoses, fan belt, distributer, etc.
I hate seeing those items all painted up.
To prep a tractor I usually pressure wash it real good. Then I use a brush and liquid Tide to degrease it. Brush it on, let it sit for half an hour and then pressure wash it off.
Just before painting I will use a gallon of lacquor thinner in a pump type garden sprayer. Catch it in a plastic trough and use it again.
Lacquor thinner really degreases well and will soften the old paint somewhat and make the new paint bond real well.
I usually just spot prime the chassis as needed with a rattle can. Then shoot a decent paint with a hardener. I used to buy the Restoration series from Valspar. But now the tree huggers have caused that to be unavailable. So I use the Valspar tractor and equip paint with hardener now.
