All those wheels would keep the operator busy I would guess. It sure looks different from when you got it

Hey Danny, got a chance to pick up an Oliver road grader here in Maine. Hope to go look at it this afternoon and will take some photos of it for you. Let you know how I make out later.
Hey Danny, saw just what you need to compliment the grader--an Oliver powered road roller/packer. It's coming up for auction soon--in the Midwest I believe. Now that would make a GREAT working display at a tractor pull!:D
I'll check into the stuff you recommend. the biggest problem I can see is I will be using my parts washer about twice a month (I work pretty slow) so I don't want to fill it up with toxic, expensive stuff that will evaporate or break down before I get the chance to enjoy it. Is there such a thing as "green" or non-toxic cleaner?
Trying to prep for paint with only a couple of hours working time is a real pain. I envy somewhat the retired guys who can put in a 8-12 hour day working on their restorations.
I have the Ensign K carb. The only thing I really need is a new manifold, but I'm waiting until the last moment to buy one. The mag is not original, it a wico xh, but someday I will try to put an original one back on. I spent last night cleaning and polishing the head and shining up the valves. I hope to have the head put back together tonight, then I will turn my attention to removing the pistons. What could have caused a heavy carbon buildup (1/8 inch think) on top of the pistons?
My first question is, would you go through the the trouble of replacing the o-rings on the sleves if you have no reason to suspect they are bad? Do they deteriate (sp) with age, or are they best left alone? The sleves are in great shape with no scoring or top rim, if that makes any difference.
