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.

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.

Now I got the photo to load, and don't know what I did different... Operator fatigue AKA pilot error?

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?
