Bought this 1949 John Deere M tractor all in parts in January 2018 and completely restored it. This was a fun project. Took 18 months. Steiner was very helpful with what parts I needed. The hardest part was finding waffle rims 10″ x 24″. Finally found 2 good used ones in Oregon.
The 1949 works great! Currently working on a 1948 John Deere M. Hope to have it running shortly. Just waiting on a hydraulic pump from Iowa.
Thanks again for all your help!
P.S. also looking to aquire a 1950 John Deere M in Spring of 2020. Hope it is running.
