Made a video/slide show of the crankshaft swap and other repairs on my 1952 John Deere AN.

yup, been there, done that. for anyone who hasn't, that crankshaft is HEAVY!

Nice post and video:thumbup1gif:

Me too it is heavy. Had to tear mine down, guy I bought it from had rebuilt it and never could get it started. Sat for about 7 years and he declined to sell it. Found the cam 180 off. Cam timing marks lined up and put back together. New manifold and exhaustion, cleaned carb and it started right up.

Yes, they do run better with the cam timed properly.
