  • 2017 Old Iron Calendar

    Over the past few years, I’ve had several requests to create a calendar featuring some of my tractor and nature photography. Well, I finally built up the ambition to go and print/create such calendar. I’m introducing the 2017 Old Iron calendar, featuring some of my tractor photos taken throughout different times of the year. I […]

  • Feeding the beef cattle with the 630

    If you just read my post about the 730, then know that the 630 is the little brother to the 730. It came in only two fuel types–“all-fuel”, which is for lower-grade fuels, and gasoline. This machine is a gasoline only model, 1958 model year. The 630 was the direct replacement for the “Model A”. I’ve […]

  • Planting with the John Deere A and LL-A Grain Drill

    This year I took the opportunity to have a little fun with planting oats in one of our smaller fields.  I used the 1947 John Deere Model A that I recently restored, as well as our old grain drill (aka planter, late 1950s).  It may not have been the quickest way to plant the oats, […]

  • 1939 John Deere A and Spring Baby Calves

    Here’s a video that was taken up at the calves.  This video is similar to the previous post, except it has more of the calves and shows the tractor stationary. Our beef cattle calf in the spring, and we feed them during the summer on the range, so our beef is only Alfalfa and grass/range […]

  • Drive to the beef cattle on a 39 John Deere A

    I took a nice little stroll to the beef cows that are currently on the dry farm on the 1939 John Deere Model A.  I’ve been working on the tractor most of the winter, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to warm the motor up a bit and let it stretch its […]

  • 1939 John Deere A Winter Drive

    Driving around the 1939 John Deere A after doing some work on it throughout the winter. We replaced the radiator core, muffler, and rebuilt carburator. This is the same tractor that I made the time lapse video reassembly of.  It’s amazing how much work you end up doing any time you decide to tear down […]

  • JD Model A Radiator Reassembly How-to

    1939 Model A Radiator Muffler Replacement how-to. This video shows the installation of the radiator, muffler, air stack, and re-assembly of the tractor. As a note–I should have filled the radiator after I re-attached the hoses on the cooling system. I had a leak in one of the hoses, and having the hood off would […]

  • Model A First Drive

    I spent a little more time on the A, and decided to take her for a test drive.  She did okay, but still needs some work.  I don’t know if it is the timings or carb but the RPMs just wouldn’t go up, making it have no power.  Eventually I’ll get there…
