My older John Deere tractors with ignition points should be ok.The newer equipment will all be toast.

Yup - anything with a carburetor and breaker points should be okay. Older diesels, too - but not the newer ones with electronic engine controls.

Anything with "throttle by wire" is definitely useless, good only as something from which to siphon fuel.

I’ve been collecting ang restoring old John Deeres,the 2 cylinder models.We have a 730 diesel and an 830 diesel.Full mechanical injection systems on those,so we’re in good shape if an EMP hits.We could get a lot of farming done with these old machines if we had to.
