Hi everyone,

I may have missed something, but where are the old posts gone? :eek:
I had a topic about the restoration of our John Deere R 1949, started here, but he is gone. :(
Is it possible to activate this again?( because I had posted only a third of the restoration)

Best regards,

After this, the engine has received new valves, piston rings, the cylinder has been hoon, and the crankshaft has been worked, the block and the heads has been grinded ...
