John Deere MT

That MT was a reliable tractor and got me home one day when I was very ill with a worsening case of appendicitis. I was raking hay when about 12 or 13 years old in a 15 acre field of cut hay on a neighbor's farm which my dad had purchased. Raking hay was one of the worst jobs I can remember, short of cleaning the trenches behind the dairy herd or cleaning the pens during spring after the calves were raised from the fall birth to the spring. But in the middle of that field, raking hay, where my dad always told me to get all the hay in even rows for the baler, I realized that something was wrong. I would wake up and see that I had drifted a few rows off and not even know what happened. Well, I was making a mess of raking the hay for the baler, and not able to figure out what was happening. I still remember unhooking the steel wheel case side rake, where I stopped to figure out what to do, decided not to drive the additional 3/4 mile back to the lane, out the driveway, to the road, and decided to head straight for the roadside row of trees, the shortest route. I found a place to get through on first try and headed home about 1 3/4 miles. Don't remember much of the trip home except a left turn and pulling into the yard. About 5-6 hours later I woke up just before surgery. Sometime my dad fixed my errant raking and finished the job and I got out about 7 days later. But I remember that about 18 horse MT running smooth and taking me home. It had a very good two row cultivator, easy to mount and dismount cultivator, otherwise a good utility tractor, and a two bottom John Deere mounted plow which it could never pull in the heavy soil and only barely pull in light soil. But it got me home that day and it must have sensed that it was headed home: I was only keeping it between the roadsides on the way. My dad bought it in about 52 and ran it until burned in an arson fire. Someone bought it for the the parts. It still has the distinction of being the worst tractor to get on and off and even worse than the MM 4 Star.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
