The olive drab one behind the yellow one has a flat four cylinder military Teledyne/ Continental motor from a generator.

Those Teledyne/Continental motors have a a military hp rating of like 9 to 10 hp, but the military way under-rated them. with the right carb and some other mods you can get 18-20 hp out of them.

Got a few more shots of that GI Deere. Also some of old 59 body of truck on a 2002 Corvette chassis. Darn thing was clear-coated, over all the rust and dirt and all! This the new way to have Rat Rods?

Clear coat over the rust/crappy paint preserves the patina of age.  It is the rage in the world of ratrods but not my thing.

I wonder how they hooked up the drive shafts on the backs of the motors?

 

I would love to find a small flat head 4 cyl to put in one.

Some had IH Cub clutches and parts, some had home-made adapters, lots of diff combinations. This guy could come up with and make many nice items,  he was good at it.  The one with 4 cyl Pony Start was the neatest, think that was diff guy maybe now, I can't recall. That was real smooth running, yet still compact. Pony Start out of big 70 or 80 Diesel Deere tractor.
