An Early Christmas Gift

Well, I guess I now own one...a green one...well, it's rust-colored now.
It's a 1946 John Deere B, complete, motor is not stuck, but low compression. I saved it from salvage. A good friend gave it to me; I hope we are still friends once I dive in to it. :lol:

No seat, no steering wheel, looks like your friend lost his behind and didn’t know which way to turn :lol:

Good luck with getting it going, you’ll need a lot of green. I grew up on green tractors, nothing like the sound of a two cylinder John Deere.

Very cool!! You'll find parts very easy to find and not nearly as expensive as they say. The first John Deere B that I had, had nearly 3/8" of ring end gap and ran good but smoked a bit. :lol: They are easy tractors to work on as well.

Congratulations! I'm glad you saved it from the junker.

"Merry Christmas to you" is in order then. :coffee:

I have several parts missing in the photo on-site; hood, front grilles, lower water pipe, carburetor, steering wheel, starter, etal. I am going to have some help on this one. We are going to try to start it and see what I have before I put time and money in it. Two cubs are in line before this B.

Be sure to keep us posted. Like most people here, I like all colors and brands of farm machinery. The only thing I have a problem with is the owners that think theirs is better than anyone else's.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
