Of course it helps to know how to keep a Model A or Model T engine running right too.

Anyone can turn the key and fire up a volkswagon or a chainsaw.

As for that tractor if you can call it that, it's definitely not a Model T engine, the manifolds are on the wrong side. I haven't looked at a Model A recently enough to remember if they switched sides or not, but I don't think it's an A either.

Definitely not an A. The block design is different, the water manifold isn't found on A engines, and the manifolds are on the wrong side. This almost looks like a 4 cylinder marine engine...
