Default John Deere "EP" engine

I read some old posts back to 2003 about the EP engines. Just wondering if any more of these have surfaced. Also have any of these sold recently. I heard one sold in the east a while back but never heard a price.Also I'm in need of a valve - rocker arm cover for one of these. Does anyone have one they would part with. Or even a repro??? This one is the northern varity. It has the normal muffler and carb. Any help on the cover would be appreciated. Thanks, Greg.

Is the EP the totally enclosed engine for use in fire and dust risk areas like grain handling? If it is, I met the president of the Dallas Antique Tractor and Engine Club last Saturday at their show and he told me that he bought two EP's off of west Texas farms and sold both in "as is" condition for $4,000.00 each as they are rare. One went to a John Deere collector in Oklahoma and I can't recall where the other one went.

Hi Bryan, Thanks for the reply. They are getting high priced but they are also hard to find like you said. You don't know what the as is condition was do you? Fairly decent or ruff??. Greg.

I was told that they were not running but were not stuck. One was attached to a grain elevator in a fence row and the other one was upside down in a fence row. They came from different farms. I'm not sure which one, but I was told that he paid $350.00 for it. One of them has been restored to new condition and was to be at the show but was not there on Saturday when I was there. The collector in Oklahoma offered and paid $4,000.00 without seeing the engine. That should give you a feel for how rare they are.
