We were touring through Morris, Illinois with our old car club when I found this John Deere "Hit-n-miss" engine at a tractor show in the park.  Went back the next day with my truck and loaded it up.  Seller said it came out of an old barn and "figured it should run"!  Serial #272910, made in 1927. 
Thanks to Marty Wolf of "Wolf Engines" in Steger, IL for his machine shop help.  Call Marty if you need work on old engines - 708-754-9595

Back together and  it runs SWEET!
(No, I ain't gonna paint it.  Looks too good original)
