This 1962 Minneapolis Moline Jet Star is the Wisconsin Antique Power Reunion's 2011 raffle tractor. It will be displayed almost every weekend throughout the summer at Wisconsin tractor shows, fairs, dairy breakfasts, picnics, etc. It was painted with the original MM colors of Dyna Brown and Prairie Gold. Five club members did the restoration; Dave Becker, Jim Redig, Bill Hinckley, Dale Schrieber and Steve Redig. They did a complete engine overhaul, replaced the clutch, pressure plate, throw-out bearing, tires, radiator, water pump, seat, gauges, battery, alternator, and muffler. They completely tore apart and sandblasted before the overhaul and painted each individual piece. The book called for 45 hp and it put out on the dyno 54 at 620 rpm also as the book called for. All their efforts will pay off as the money they raise from the raffle is donated back to their community in Wisconsin!
