Neither did John Deere, but someone put a lot of time in this take a good look at the governor setup

No...I waited around a bit for the owner to return . It was getting warm and my granddaughter was getting anxious to go.

That is very cool. "Nohn Deere".  :D

 

I wonder what size the engines are, maybe 8 hp each?  I would really love to hear it running. I wonder if the builder timed them so that it has a firing order like an old 2-cylinder Deere? Now, THAT would be extra cool.

I work in the Enfield where the owner lives. I wonder if I contacted him , he would let me make a short video of it running to post on here. I could get all the background of how this all came about. What do you guys think?
