John Deere D Built From Scratch
My 1/4-scale John Deere D was built totally from scratch. Itís powered by a Deere pony motor and Cub Cadet rear end. It has a functional belt pulley, flywheel, pto and hand clutch. I made the fenders and all the sheet metal parts, except the hood, which was made by my friend, Myron Hoelscher. The radiator core was special-ordered. The rear wheels are cut down dump rake wheels and the front wheels came off a cultivator. The seat is an original Deere cast iron seat.
  The tractor is fully functional so we take it to shows, where it gets a lot of attention. (Dewane Myers, Bethalto, Ill. ph 618 259-1813; myrswelding1@aol.com)
