Feeding After Dark with the John Deere A

I was a little later getting to the feeding tonight, but it gave me a good opportunity to use my newly installed LED lights. They are a lot brighter than the originals, yet still fit in the same housings (and look “original”). Also, the snow is getting deeper. It’s been pretty cold lately, so the tractor still goes through it okay. It was around 10 degrees F when I was feeding.

1947 John Deere A Engine Rebuild

I recently rebuilt the engine on the 1947 A. I changed out the head and block, plus put new high-compression pistons in it.

This video shows a few photos, plus the first few drives with the newly rebuilt engine. The newer high-compression pistons sure make a big difference!

Special thanks to Jerry’s Machine & Engine Parts of Idaho Falls, Idaho, for their work with the new head and block.
