McCormick-Deering 10-20??

I may have the opportunity to restore a tractor my uncle calls a 10-20. Something about 10HP from the PTO and 20 from the drawbar (or vice versa). Anyway, It ran 15-20 years ago, I have no ideal how well, but it is complete except for the side panels covering the engine.
From what I could found out it starts on gasoline and runs on kerosene.

The biggest flaws from 15 seconds of looking are: Gas tank is rusted out beyond repair. Manifold is cracked (I think I can repair or build a new one).

My Questions:
Can it be restored?
Can I get parts or do I have to make my own?

Bill- I wanted to jump in here and say that I have an opportunity to restore a 22-36 (bigger model, same era). I've read a lot of posts here on what to look for, and the biggest thing seems to be if the block is cracked. Finding a replacement block or getting one repaired will get expensive. Also, if the radiator is usable. Another rare/expensive item. Used parts are available, but you really have to struggle to find things. That's the fun part!! Seals and such can be found from bearing supply houses. Gaskets can be made. When you get her running it's a wonderful feeling! Search through the posts and you will find tons of info on where to get stuff and how to do things. If you have a problem, just ask here! :) Paul+

Would it be possible for a radiator shop to put a radiator in an oven to melt the solder and then pull the radiator completely apart, for to fix it?

I really dont kmow much about a 10-20 other than what it looks like. One of my tractor buddies a few miles away has a 1932 model. Ive heard him say that reproduction side curtains are available. He is planning on restoring his. The previous owner improperly painted the tractor red. Ill see what he says about the gas tank.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
