John Deere Tech 2014

Well another year has past and it is time to say goodbye and good luck to another class. It seems like only yesterday that this group started but two years have passed and its time they move on to new adventures.
We look forward to the chance to meet again.

Alex 4.5L

This was the first time this little 4.5L was apart. In its former life it was used on a wood chipper. It was a little rusty inside for setting for several years. It has a Lucas rotary pump on it that needs to be timed with a light after it is started. It may be small but it can still hold up that big chrome stack.

Alec and Jessie 12.5L

This is the 12.5L called Eva or so the controller says. She has been around for quite some time. She seems to like to spray some students with diesel fuel before she starts. We had a little injector issue on one cylinder this year but they got it to work.

Justin and Dylan 7.6L

This is the famous 666 engine. It has a bent crankshaft but we leave it that way for an example of what to look for when assembling. This engine has been apart at least 18 times. It has a electronically controlled inline pump.
