I'd say you got some good advice for the guys below.
Aside from the transmission look for the usual drips and leaks. I have gotten so I verify that the cotter pin in still in the tranny/clutch housing as there have been enough stories of folks finding the hold plugged and the bell housing half full of oil.
If you've had an 8N for that long you will find the Hundred tractors mostly familiar to you and typical trouble spots will be the same. Slow starting, blue smoke, oil pressure, shakes, rattles, welds, tires - did I mention tires?
The steering on late 8N through the Hundreds is almost identical.
Everything on a Hundred will be a bit heavier but not much more complicated than an N.
861 will definately eat an N's lunch.
Bring your camera and post some pictures of it here, whether or not you buy it.
