    im looking for a specifi 8430 john deerewhich i bought brand new back in the fall of 1978 .Had it for 10 years before it was traded in. i always regetted trading that tractor and am trying to track it down . I was taken to the Rietzel Bros auction in the early winter months of 1988 I tried to find info from them but they had got rid of all there old records and couldn't help me. I was hoping some one might have seen it somewhere you would know it when you saw it the air intake was chromed by a freind of mine guarantied to never rust the last 4 digits in the vin number are 6716 hope someone has seen this tractor I would like to get it back and do a restoration on it.

      I did some digging and came up empty handed other than the one at Fawcett tractor. Teeswater has a 1755. Depending what you need, the 1655,1755 and 1855 shared a lot of parts. BOth oliver and cockshutt are the same tractor.  There is a beat up 1755 near me, its got a new clutch and head gasket. i saw it up close and its rought. they guy told me $4000 for it ( last link on the bottom ) agricole


      i hope this helps your quest, i will keep my eyes out for more of them for you,  AL

      Don't know the address, that farm couple has long since passed on but their son still owns it, his name is Roy Webb and he lives in the Basehor area last I heard.  I know him when I see him and he knows me but that is about the extent of our relationship, I see him sitting in the driveway to that place in his truck on occasion but he always locks the cable behind him, kind of like he doesn't wish to be bothered so I have never stopped by when I see him there.  That 8430 left under it's own power, I remember meeting it on the highway and was amazed it ran but who knows how long it took them to get it running.

      thats great to hear that someone finally got it running and is being used or restored. I used to own one back in the 80's but had to sell it as things got tough for me back then, always regretted selling it never did any major repairs to it just a pump rebuild and injectors. Put over 6000 hours on it and the only major money put in to it was new tires and duals.Thanks for the info I will keep looking for one,  if you happen to see one with the last 4 serial number digits 6717 thats the one I really am trying to find ,the one I let go. Thanks again
