Default My first post here

hello from MN!
this is my first post here. Thought i would share my latest project. Just finished it last week. Wasnt sure where it would fit in here on the forums exactly. Started as a 1 1/2 HP McCormick Deering that needed a fair amount of work. After new oversized valves, new piston rings, honed the cylinder, repaired magneto, new fuel tank, and lots of other miscelaneous pieces and parts it runs excellent and starts very easy! The tractor is my design and took me apprx 4 months to complete in my spare time. here are some pics.

welcome to the stak. I really like your tractor. I also have a 1 1/2 M. Mine is belted to a pump jack and pump, pumping water. They are very good running engines. Cranked it at the last show and it pumped water till it ran out of gas. Bill K
