Here is a picture of my 1929 22-36 McCormick Deering. The tractor was born the same week as I was. However, it runs better than I do!

My grandson Jeff Petersen is at the wheel.

It has two casting dates on the frame, 8-30-29 and 9-14-29, and the engine has a date of 9-13-29. There is no serial number.

I bought this tractor March 1st, 1992. It was last used to power a sawmill. It sat outdoors by the mill for 30 years after the belt pulley was broken. The mag was still hot when I bought it.

It took three months to get it running. I had the radiator off three times fixing leaks, and also the water pump didn't work. The gas tank leaked also. I changed the front tires and rims, as the ones on it were rusted out. One back tire also was replaced. I painted it too.
