Designed by John Harvey of Classic Tractor Fever, these deluxe playing cards come in a custom box with two decks per box. Every card has a color photo of a restored classic tractor, including its year, brand, model, owner's name/state and a significant fact about that tractor. They make the perfect gift for tractor enthusiasts!



For the first time, a detailed step-by-step guide to stationary gas engine restoration has been written for engine enthusiasts. From start to finish, Peter Rooke's newly revised, easy-to-follow narrative will impress and educate both new and experienced hobbyists with exhaustive coverage of the process.

In 112 pages, Rooke meticulously leads you from stripping an engine through rebuilding each component — from bearings to cylinder head to ignition. Tips along the way cover everything from repairing damaged threads to removing rust and zinc plating.

A new chapter on building your own magneto charger has been added to this newly revised edition of Gas Engine Restoration. Other chapters include information on rebuilding engine carts as well as painting engines, whether applying new paint or preserving old finish. Included are data tables containing reference information such as various bolt head and nut sizes, copper wire sizes and bearing tolerances.

The book has a soft, durable cover and a convenient lay-flat spiral binding that allows you to keep your hands at work while you follow along.
