These two cylinder diesels amaze me.Around 4 months age we got our John Deere R started after sitting for around 10 years. Poppin John rebuilt the magneto on the pony motor but nothing was done to diesel and after 30 second of cranking it caught and it never missed a beat. The R found a new home and a restoration is underway now. The 830 (electric start )was running fine when it was sidelined around the same time as the R with a bad radiator core.The son has bugging me to help him get it going so he can drive it to school next week.The radiator went in fine and literally ten seconds of cranking under compression it was up and running like it was just shut off yesterday.Both tractors were running fine when they were sidelined and the fuel in the tanks had been treated with fuel treatment during their hibernation but other than putting 5 gals of new fuel in the R because we were selling it they both were running on ten year old fuel (high sulfer because thats what we could get ten years ago).I know we couldnt get away with that with gasoline.

My 70 sat for over 20 years with the old diesel fuel in and because the coils were bad on the pony we pulled started and within 3 feet it was up running like a top.

They are something alright. My R sat in a shed in northern North Dakota for something like 16 years, so the neighbors say, and it popped right off. The fuel was as old as the tractor had sat there and maybe older. We pull started it because there wasn't a battery in it. Had to pull a file through the mag points but the pony started right off with a fresh battery. Jim
