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,

Tom

Thanks very much for reposting your pics Tom, we lost a great deal of material including your very interesting restoration thread, unfortunately it wasn't possible to save the old stuff, we look forward to the remainder of the "R" rebuild. :D

Hello everyone,

The work on the small engine continues ...

After being welded again ..





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 ...







Look on the top of the block before reinstalling the manifold (engine cover)
