Which model of JD tractor would have been fairly small (about Farmall Cub size), with a 1 or two cylinder engine?

I remember one being used in the field behind my parent's house about 35-40 years ago. It had avery distinctive pow-pow-pow sound and, at the time, I thought it was a single, but could possibly have been a 2 cylinder.

Anybody know what I might have seen??? Any Pictures???

It could be a JD L or LA made from 1937 through the 1940's used a 2cylinder Novo Gasoline-only engine.

Might have been a Model "H". They are small and also had a two cylinder engine that ran at what we would consider very low RPM and very high torque. The old Deere 2 cyl. tractors are often affectionately called "Johnny Poppers" for their distinctive popping sound.

go to one of my other sites
www.tractorpics.com and look around the JD section. You might look inthe unclassified, and even the Glen Rose show section.
Of course we expect a report if you find the one you are looking for!

Not an H either... Smaller than that, and without the tricycle wheel arrangement.

Honestly, it was Farmall Cub sized, with wide front axle and a pug, pug, pug sound. They used it to plow, plant and harvest a 30 acre field most of the time I was growing up. My brother got a ride once, when they were baling Hay......

I don't know how to load a photo up, but the H was available as a wide front and in a couple of other configurations. There ia a great web site on the Deere "Letter" tractors specifically showcasing the Model "B" but with info on all of them. It is
http://www.terrystoy.com/Model-B/index.htm and go to Melodies's Tractor school for photos and descriptions. Terry did a restoration of a Model "B" and documented it week by week from start to finish.

Well, you have run me out of ideas, i hope someone else comes up with what you are looking for. You and I were born the same year, so I focused on old stuff, Maybe it was something made in the late 50's .. 60's?
