I have made some progress, here are some of the parts that are primed and ready for paint. I'm using Spray Max 2-part epoxy aerosol primer, it's like the 2-part primers you would shoot through a gun, but it's more convenient for me to use the spray cans. It's a bit expensive at around $18 a can, but it dries harder than the hinges of hell, and I know that it's gonna last longer than me. :)
If you ever wondered what a chrome wheel would look like, this should give you some idea. I sanded one of the wheel centers with 60 grit, and took a pic with it mounted to the axle. You can see I have the tractor "body" primered now, too.
I took the distributor apart and cleaned it up, made sure the advance mechanism was free, installed new points, condenser, and rotor and painted it. This pic shows what the advance mechanism looks like. It was nice and free and the springs looked good, so I didn't have to do anything to it. The two other pics are before/after of the dizzy restore.
Here is the steering box all tore apart. My original plan was to polish the cast aluminum and clear coat it, but I found a shiny aluminum paint that I may use instead. The box is getting new bushings, bearings and seals, and a new steering wheel.
