Excuse my ignorance, what is it? I saw one just like that driving down the street in Winthrop WA last week.

Yup, just like 56 said, it's a model 60. Not sure of the year, probably mid 50's. It's almost identical to the one scattered in my garage.:lol:

Is this a parts tractor for your Grand Dad's tractor or an addition to your collection? Either way it doesn't look too bad.

Nice find, Jason. I would love to find an old Johnny Popper, but nothing larger than a B, more like a H, M, or a 40 (or a L or LA).

I see them all the time around here Terry. Check CL in the Nashville area. I'll be glad to help you purchase one, with your money of course.:mocking: They are fairly popular around here.


And yes, this 60 was bought as a parts tractor.:flag_of_truce: Not only will it insure a complete and proper mechanical restoration of my Grandpa's 60, but it will help keep others alive by supplying much needed parts for their restoration.:good2:

So here's a video of the "new" 60 up and running. I had cleaned the fuel strainer, put in fresh fuel, and repaired the coil wiring. If you listen carefully especially towards the end of the video you'll hear a whirring noise coming from the flywheel side of the engine. I believe a bearing is going out on the engine near the governor. Enjoy:thumbup1gif:

Seems a shame to take a running machine and use it for parts. :cray:

Fun video! Thanks!

That's great, Jason. Reminds me of an old JD model "B" I used to drive back in the 50's.

Those were the days . . . :drinks:

Trust me, I feel the same way. But look at it this way. It's a heck of a lot cheaper buying a complete parts tractor (running or not) than buying a bunch of individual parts. Plus not only will it bring my Grandpa's 60 back from the grave, there's no telling how many others out there it may save as well with the salvaged parts.

So here's the equation...

1 dead tractor plus 1 running tractor (and lots of time) = 1 running tractor and X amount of possibly saved tractors.

I understand, and the running one would need parts and work too, to keep it going.
