My Good Luc(k) Engine

On January 3, 1993, a friend of a friend who is now my friend, called to ask if we (my wife and I are partners) would be interested in an old John Deere engine. That is like the old saying 'does a wild bear live in the wilderness'! Sure maybe, tell me more!

'It came from a combine, and seems to be identical to the engine on an L tractor. I bought it to use as a project, but it has become obvious that the project won't be pursued by me,' he says.

I went on a cold winter day, heard the engine run, made a deal, and went the next day and brought it home. This will fit well with the John Deere tractors and old equipment already on hand!
