John Deere unstyled model “D” restoration – almost finished

I started this project a long time ago, but got busy with other things. It needs to be finished.

This was my first restoration project, and I learned a huge amount about restoration work doing it.

A close look will reveal some of the things that experts would do differently. For example, I primed some of the individual parts before I assembled the tractor.  This resulted in chipped and scratched primer when I had to fix some ‘bugs’ after assembly!  I also had to remove the head to solve a pesky coolant leak. These are things you learn on the first project, without an expert restorer advising you along the way!
