I am a new subscriber to your Gas Engine Magazine and really enjoy reading other people's stories of their engines and tractors.

I am getting some great help from John W. Boyens of Bettendorf, Iowa on my 1 HP McCormick Deering.

In the December 1992 issue, I read about a tractor find in New Hampshire concerning a Model A Ford tractor adapter kit. I have one of those tractors, restored and running. The only difference is my kit was sold by Montgomery Ward, not Sears and Roebuck.

I bought the tractor in 1963 for $15.00. It was brought to me for that price.

The clutch was rusted, so I pulled the engine, freed the clutch and had it running that day. I tried breaking the clutch loose by backing into a tree but it didn't work, just killed the engine.
