I'm a new member here and wanted to post a few pictures of my 1967 John Deere 1020 diesel restoration. I bought this tractor from a neighbor and was in rough shape when I bought it. It has 4600 hours on it but still runs excellent. I will be doing an in frame engine rebuild this winter for some fresh pistons, rings, etc., due to engine blowby. Overall, it is a very dependable tractor that was neglected for a long time, but after some TLC and elbow grease, she is now a part of the family.
I also posted a pic of a Woods Model 59 finish mower I also restored last year. I got this mower for $100.00 but the gentleman was going to give it to me for free. It was parked under a pecan tree and covered up with briers for many years but the deck and housing had no rust. I replaced the belt after a few hours use, but other than that, I greased it and sharpened the blades.....cuts spectacular!
I try to maintain all of my equipment the best that I can, but this was my first true restoration and have a few other JD's that I will be doing in the future.....1955 JD 60 and a 1949 JD A. I also have a Farmall H that will be restored, but not for a while. Please let me know what you think....glad to be a member and friends with y'all.
