I`m going to buy a C that had been sitting for years in a dry inclosed barn, it was driven in and parked on wood so the tires didn`t touch the dirt. Now the man that bought it while in the barn brought it home and had the mag rebuilt (why I don`t know yet?) and also said the fuel system needs cleaned out and the carb. rebuilt before even trying to start it. I`m working with the ol`boy and this will be my first tractor. Any advice for the C since it sat for so many years? Pre-starting tricks? Remove plugs and squirt oil in the the cylinders?

well if they ran it in the barn and left it set with gas in the carb and fuel tank i can assure u it is varnished up i would pull the sediment bowl off drain the tank and clean everything up.then i would pull the drain plug on the carb and try to run a little fresh gas thru it before trying to start it for sure

Hi Robert
oil in the cylinders is a good idea.
check the fuel tank for leaks and or being pluged
with varnish.
remove a fitting by the oil filter and squirt
some oil in to prime the oil pump. also change
the oil and filter. try to crank the engine
with plugs out to make sure that the oil pump
works. the furl system may need work,but it may
run without rebuilding the carb.
there are so many things that you can and may have to do. start with the basics.
do you have spark? do you have compression?
oil pressure is a must.
good luck

Yup.. all of the above you will want to flush that radiator also, and just clean up the points with a file to get the glaze off and she will probably fire right up!
