I need to verify the manufacturer of the engine for my 1952 John Deere MC crawler. The man that is going to do the rebuild thinks it might be a Wisconsin motor. Can anyone verify this or advise me of the correct manufacturer?

I have an early 50's MC crawler that has tracks stretched in excess of the adjustment screws. While I have a couple of cracked links that I need replacing what options are there to properly tension the tracks.
