GEM Experts: Mystery John Deere
I am a subscriber to your magazine and really enjoy reading it. I looked on your list of GEM Experts and didn’t find a listing for John Deere. I am trying to find any information on the engine pictured above. The plate was basically falling apart, but we could see “EB92” on it. I am not sure of its age or any other information. The lady that has it stated her late husband bought it and she knows nothing about it. I would appreciate any help.
