John Deere G Rescue

John Deere G

Find out what it took to get this John Deere G running again.

Not much to say about this John Deere G tractor at this point except I seen it sitting on a vacant lot for some time when my son-in-law started working for the company that owns that lot and was put in charge of cleaning it up.

John Deere G

I ended up purchasing the tractor with the understanding that it had run just a few years prior. The motor was tight when I bought the tractor and I tried everything possible to loosen it up without any success. I ended up taking it apart and found a mouse nest in the water jacket and rust in the one cylinder so bad that after taking it apart I used a 20 ton jack and 20 lb hammer to get the one piston out. After checking out the rest of the tractor the only good thing on it was the transmission and the Roll-O-Matic. So I had to decide, am I going to scrap the G and hope to get some of my money back or do we rebuild the entire tractor. After leaving it sit in my shop all torn apart I decided to rebuild or maybe I should say build a G John Deere. I don’t have a lot of photos at this time but I can keep posting as we work on it. And thank you Steiner for the few items already, you should be seeing more orders coming your way as we get along with the rebuilding.

1959 John Deere 830D

Recently my brother, Henry Delbridge, brother-in-law, Tim Lane, and I finally finished restoring a 1959 John Deere 830 Diesel tractor. We purchased the tractor out in Utah where it had sat for decades. When the tractor arrived the engine was completely seized, the clutch totally disintegrated, and not a component seemed to be salvageable. While discouraged, we remained determined and resolute that the ‘ole beast’ would someday once again breath fire and hold its head high among the old dinosaurs.

That day has come. It lives! Once again it roams the countryside leaving all who see it with a sense of admiration and respect. Attached are photos of the revitalized beast, although somewhat tamer and looking ‘up town’, its veins again flow with vigor and power. Its resurrection would not have been possible if it weren’t for parts purveyors like Steiner’s. I extend my most sincere thanks to all the good folks at Steiner’s. Your very existence and what you do, assures that the legacy of the old iron dinosaurs will go on.  Thanks Again!

My Grandchildren and I Thank You

“I want you to know how much my grandchildren look forward to me receiving parts from you, because they know there will be candy at the bottom of the package. This is a nice gesture on your part and I wanted you to know.

Thank you also for the parts and service you provide so that many of us can continue to run and operate our old tractors. I thought you might enjoy seeing that your company has helped keep this soon to be 62 year old model 60 John Deere to continue running. This belonged to my dad and now his great grand-children get to enjoy riding it.”

December Featured Photo

“His & Hers”

December’s featured photo was submitted by Kim Horneman and will be featured in our 2018 catalog. The tractors pictured are a John Deere 720 and a John Deere 40. “My 720 diesel is a 1957 or 1958, pony start, has 3-point hitch and dual hydraulics. I bought it just out of high school and it was literally in boxes but somehow it became a tractor again. My husband’s 40 is a 1955 and is the latest addition to our family. We just got the chrome pipe from you all 2 days prior to this picture when we were having our family plow day at my parent’s farm, Daily Crisis Farm. He was a Farmall man but I think he has realized it’s okay to like both.”

Northern Antique Power Club 2017 Show

We would like to thank everyone at Steiner Tractor Parts for being a partner in our show. We had our most successful show ever this year. And again this year our pullers and tractor displayers were excited to see the 2017 Steiner Catalog.

I have enclosed a few pictures from our show. We displayed our Steiner banner at our antique tractor pull arena. We had a lot of comments from the pullers about how they loved Steiner’s service and shipping (personally I know that my husband loves to order enough to get the free hat when they are being offered).

Thank you again for your support of our show. The hats, t-shirts, funnels, little bottle opener guys and the candy were, as always, a big hit.

September Featured Photo

This tractor was purchased new by my grandfather in 1955 and was used on the family farm. My uncle did an overhaul on it when he was in high school but it was later replaced by newer equipment and parked in the barn. After sitting in the barn for 30 years I pulled it out and completed a full restoration on this John Deere 50 during my senior year of high school. I competed in the tractor restoration contest through FFA at the major ag mechanic shows in Texas and managed to place quite well.”
