Fred Sandahl's John Deere G

Here are some pictures of my 1950 "G" John Deere I purchased in 1990. The block, head, pistons and other engine parts were in a box in the corn crib where I purchased the tractor. After going through the engine, transmission and rear end and putting on new tires I ended up with a nice "G" that I am very happy with. Fred Sandahl
