    My CL 1951 John Deere A

    All,

    First of my tractors profiles,

    This is my 1951 A I bought on Craigslist last year for $1200.00. I bought it online because the owner said the sheet metal was good and I was looking for sheet metal for my dad's 51 AW. I did not ask or know if it ran, just wanted to get it because of the straight metal. I think every panel on my dad's is dented, LOL.

    Anyway, I get there after a 3 hour drive and he fires it up and drives it on my trailer. Runs better than my dad's A. So, now I a have two and will be in search of metal again.

    A side story, got in truck and it wouldn't start. Paid a service guy a hundred bucks to hit the bottom of my fuel tank while I turned the key and got it started and home. And, I didn't shut it down until I got it home. New FP went in the next weekend off.

    Anyway, enjoy the pictures.

    Put her to work right away

    Well, she is retired, so light work. Not in the nursing home (museum) yet!

    I helped replaced a cracked transmission case on a 1955 520 narrow. I was flat blown away with the powertrain engineering from the 50s. Those tractors are bomb proof.
