I always fancied a John Deere, possibly because of their colour, but I was told that they tend to 'gallop' a little when running and were cheaply made like an Amanco so that put me off of them! There was one locally to me two years ago that the guy wanted £250 but he took ages to sell it, (I had no money back then) he had restored it from a wreck and it looked well and he just wanted to recoup the money that he spent on parts and paint for it as the engine was given him as a freebie. Just dont seem popular locally, I only know of one that does the rounds, but I still like the look of them.

Pete.

There's hardly any American engine in the North East so I can't even say I've seen on in the flesh even the big shows it's all Rustons, Blackstones and the like.
I always wanted a JD but now any American engine that's a bit rare over here would do, I would even settle for a Maytag twin just to be a bit different.

Pete, I would say they are built well, they do suffer with crank pressure. On my one I have the later crank cover they fitted a breather on them. If they are set up right they run great.
