John Deere 420 ("POP! JOHNNY)
Today is my lucky day! I get to drive a vintage
JD! It is a spectacular tractor but kind of scary to drive. It has no
fenders, so long clothing could get hooked and pull you off the tractor.
There are a lot of ways to die on this tractor. Pop Johnny was the pop!
from the gasoline engine.
Here are the specs:
Engine: 28 horse power (I think) gasoline, Liquid cooled, inline twin
three point hitch
five forward gears one R gear

1960 John Deere 430-S tractor FOR SALE $3,800 in NJ - June 4, 2010
Has hole in manifold so a little noisy but transmission is quiet. Good
running and oil pressure. Optional 5-Speed with dual stage clutch.
Optional dual touch-a-matic too, plus 24" Power Adjust rear wheels as you
can see. Mostly all good sheet metal except a little rough on lower front
nose. Drawbar frame in back but no drawbar currently, but does have full JD
3-Point WITH factory top link. 3-Point isn't working but was this winter
and owner thought it was the levers and we now see that the friction disk
in between the levers has just recently most rotted away so that probably
has something to do with it. Can help with delivery if needed at .80/mile
or less on long distances. Late 430 serial # that is within one of the
last 1,000 John Deere 430's ever made. Thank you!
SOLD -1956 classic John Deere 420-S for Sale $4,000 at Oxford, MS
Runs great with perfect oil pressure and quiet transmission. Keep in mind
Stacy there the mechanic driving it is 6'5" but even he fits on it well.
Serial # 85478 and 1 of only 1,535 made in 1956. Only missing battery box
sides and drawbar. Manifold has been repaired and one repair by PTO and a
small repair on the right front axle by spindle all of which I have close
up pictures of. No oil on the ground where its parked at all. Tires are
very good 80% with slight weathering, fronts 20% with weathering. John
Deere 3-Point hitch. Rims and sheet metal all very good and just needs new
front grill screens if anything. Not beat up at all. All this needs really
is new paint and decals and it'd look like a $6,000+ tractor - someone at
some pointed painted it with the yellow hood stripe which was in 1957 but
1956 to be correct was the only year for this model that it was all green
with yellow decal and yellow wheels. I have some pictures of other
restored correctly and they look sharp. Full of antifreeze and all gauges
work. 4-speed with regular PTO on back and JD 3-Point. Steering, brakes
and clutch all real good too. Has a New Seat too. Robert at (512)
John Deere 730 Diesel Tractor Start Up (pony engine)
1959 John Deere 730 Diesel with cranking engine (pony engine). Found
tractor in central Illinois and restored to present condition. 1960 was
last year that John Deere made the two cylinder tractor. This
announcement shocked farmers, but was a good decision for John Deere. Best
kept secret in industrial history.
