Cool Re: Heavy Machines powered by GM diesels or Detroits

Here are some videos on the Big Bud 747 of it running, transporting it and getting a tire change.

Cool Re: Heavy Machines powered by GM diesels or Detroits

I subscribe to the Green Magazine, it's a magazine for John Deere enthusiasts and the featured model for October 2020 is none other than the John Deere model 435 with the 2 stroke "Screamin Jimmy" Detroit 2-53. Here are some scans I did of the article about that tractor. Hopefully it can be read, there is an online version of the magazine but, you have to pay to subscribe to the online version.

Re: Heavy Machines powered by GM diesels or Detroits

Looks like a good write up. I will read it in detail as time allows. Thanks for posting it. Although I dis-agree with the Production Number breaks-downs. The 435 was made in approx the last 10 Months of '59 and just the first 3 Months of '60 (Refer to my post #69 for what I have learned on it). I also have original JD Manuals and will produced the Numbers the book states when I get a chance to dig them out. They got the total right though, 4626. Great pictures on it too. Funny, mine has a hole in the front grille panel like the one in the 2nd pictures has. There is a tap there for the hydraulic system. Not sure what they were running on it, but it's there, lol.

Great sounding Detroit. Believe it's a 3-53.

My neighbor has one like it. When he's logging out in the neighborhood, he plays that music all day, lol.

Re: Heavy Machines powered by GM diesels or Detroits

That's what I was guessing. I just had this one pop up. Little old Oliver 4wd. This video was made for this thread. I didn't see mention of which motor. What do you think?

Re: Heavy Machines powered by GM diesels or Detroits

I agree. It even sounds like a 4-53.

Interesting tractor.
