    working the D

    got out the 1935 D to pull my new 20' trailer around back. rigged up a headlight with a strap. lol had to go up hill and down hill in soft ground the D had no problems didnt even slip a tire was running it at about 500rpm. trailer weight is only 2,000lbs but the D got to play. about 3 turns of the fly wheel in 30 degree temps and it fired right up.

    just for fun

    Dragging around a 1ton trailer with a D is like a child dragging around a balloon! There is a reason they had such a long production run. Sounds like you have the carb pretty well dialed in. Nice job.

    How did the neighborhood like its 2-cylinder powered wake up call?
