Scott - a lot of that went on . Some tractors were sidetracked in production and refitted  . Some were shoved out the door a notch above or below current production models .


 A lot of  similarities in production methods when slight problems arose  .



Just way too to write about in single paragraph  style .

I was looking at both my D4-12's today. The early model with the Craftsman Tecumseh has the oil drain pipe going out the bottom of the motor and the bottom plate of the frame has a hole cut out for this drain pipe to drop down through it. My later model D4-12 has the drain pipe coming out the side of the motor and the side frame has a hole cut out of it for it to stick through.


The NOS KD front head lights I bought back a ways had the painted rings instead of the chrome rings appear to have been original for the D4-12 tractors. I have seen at least 4 or more tractors at this point, that had these headlights on them.
