I was expecting the Typhoon. They came out with the 900 which was just as maneuverable as the one in that video, and far more conventional.

One of my history books gives a brief description & pic of it trying to pull a plow. Test engineer said it drove about like a row boat in a hurricane.
Henry's motto was "Lets start it up & see why it won't run".

Wow! I have never seen that or even knew it had been built. When I saw "prototype" I thought it was the tractor that sits in "The Henry Ford" in Dearborn next to Greenfield village.

COOL! It must date from 1937-'40. Thats when Ford made that tiny 60 hp. flathead engine.

Cold temperatures reduce the volatility of the air/fuel mixture.
Heating the combustion chambers - ideally by heating the coolant that surrounds them, is the most effective cold weather starting aid.
Nothing else comes close.
I only have a couple of Ford diesel tractors. Below about 20 degrees they are pretty hopeless to get started unless I use starting fluid - which I am loathe to use.
But if I plug in the block heater for an hour or two they will start like it's July.
