Waterloo JD
« on: March 10, 2013, 11:27:16 AM »
Most of us have been around the block a few times and this is nothing new,but genuine Listers are hard to come by.The old John Deere two cylinder tractors are next of kin,think of them as a mobile Lister.I've owned and worked two cyl. Deers for 50 years and they never stop amazing me, they were built for the long haul and will still hold their own with the asian wonder diesels.My favorite is a 70 diesel ,I'am a diesel mechanic by trade and my jaw dropped when I rebuilt this tractor everything is massive big bore [6 1/8"] and stroke journals you can barely put boath hands around.Wile your waiting for your next "Lister fix"and find an old Deere it will be one of the most usefull machines you have, especially if it has a loader.

Most old Jonny Poppers were thermosiphon cooling if I remember right as well.   There are a lot of them still popping around, a few working, but mostly dressed up for show.  An employee of mine still used his "60" to move snow.  Doc.

Casey,I've got pictures but I'am not bright enough to put them in a post.Doc still work mine, they have that farm freash finish.I modified a JD 45W loader with forks and use it on a 60 to load logs on the mill.Set the relief valve so the rear wheels won't leave the ground, will lift about 2500lbs. anything heavier than that gets cut shorter or I don't mess with it.
