New gaskets, bearings and seals included part numbers AM3535T, JD8225, JD8187, JD8823, JD8839T, AM3491T, JD8568T, AM3572T, M3659T, JD8230T, JD8194T, JD7939T, JD8907T, JD8240T, AM253T, JD8205T, JD8144T, AM2924T and M3159T.

Dad’s 1961 JOHN DEERE 3010

3010 front crop1961 John Deere 3010Dad’s 1961 JOHN DEERE 3010 was our family’s first brand new tractor! We recently restored it to like new condition for Dad and he still uses it regularly at 85 years of age! Notice the great STEP and HAND RAIL assembly. This really makes it easy and SAFER for Dad to use his JD 3010. We thought it was just for OLD guys but once we used the tractor step assembly we LOVED it! We have these nice, U.S. made step and hand rail assemblies available for many different makes and models. Everybody should have one! Check with us for details.

Eric Anderson’s John Deere M Tractor

Our good friend Eric Anderson from Baltimore, MD had us restore his Father’s old John Deere M.  Eric could remember riding on Dad’s lap as a boy and wanted to re-capture those memories to share with his young sons Max and Eddie.  Eric had not seen it in a while since he went off to college, got married and started a family.  When we picked the tractor up and sent pictures it was apparent that we had a LONG way to go.  She is now finished and runs and looks like a CHAMP!

Restored 1931 John Deere GP Tractor

This beautiful 1931 John Deere GP is owned by our good friends Tom and Helen Bradish of London, Ontario, Canada.  This old girl was not very pretty when they brought her to us last Autumn (see picture of her below).   The restoration was not an easy one but we were able to get the tractor completed in time for it to be one the Bradish’s  featured tractors at a huge tractor show Tom and Helen played a major role in organizing in Ontario, Canada in September, 2010.   We were VERY happy Tom and Helen gave us the privilege of restoring her for them.  Let us know if you need parts for your JOHN DEERE Tractor restoration project!
