Antique Tractor Gauge Troubleshooting

Questions Rob, in our technical department, recently found a document that provides really good troubleshooting information on antique tractor gauges.  This pdf will explain the basic types of gauges and how they function.  It also includes some detailed information on how to troubleshoot the various types of tractor gauges. 
Collectors of many brands of antique tractors will find this useful. It is not exclusive to any one brand of antique tractor.  We will be linking this blog to our tractor gauges listed under Allis Chalmers, Case, Ford, IH – Farmall, John Deere, Oliver and Minneapolis Moline. 
If you are having any issues with your gauges either before or after buying new tractor gauges, you will find this document helpful. 

Have any other information to share with other tractor hobbyists?  Share it in the comments.

New & Improved Battery Box to fit John Deere A & G

Jenny

Now available is our JDS149 battery box to fit John Deere A SN: 584000 & up
& G SN: 26000 & up. The box is complete with a tray and has a JD green powder coat finish. Jenny Steiner states, “Ever since I was a teenager helping taking phone calls after school, I’ve always wondered why anyone would manufacture or want to buy a battery box that was not complete (missing the bottom tray). Finally you can now purchase a COMPLETE ready-to-install battery box for your John Deere A or G, including a nice shiny JD green powder-coat finish.” In addition, the installed transparent bushings in the box are acid and alkali resistant, oil-proof and shock absorbent. The JDS149 is priced at $159.95 and is in stock for immediate shipment.

Black & White Photos of John Deere

While I was tweeting today, I came across an interesting photo gallery of Black and White photos. There are also a LOT of comments about the photos and many of the people posting included photos of their favorite tractors in both color and black and white. I thought this was really cool. Most of the tractor discussions on the net happen on tractor related forums or message boards. I found this really interesting and thought some of you might find it enjoyable as well. Here is the link: http://jalopnik.com/5340940/even-black-and-white-photos-of-john-deere-tractors-are-cool/gallery/

Enjoy!
