My first tractor was a 2N that I got from my father.
The engine must have been fairly fresh as it really ran good and I used the heck out of it for a couple of years. Along the way I found this site and learned about the improvements Ford had made to the 8Ns - position control, a real drawbar, both brakes on the right side and 4 speeds instead of 3.
So I bought a clean but smokey 8N, switched the engines and sold the 2N.
When I got the 8N running and learned how fast reverse was in it I was thoroughly disapointed - even disgusted with the tractor. Why anyone would design such a thing as that I'll never know.
Some folks say that the biggest drawback to an 8N is their lack of live hydraulics. I thought it was that waaay too fast reverse. But that's why I started looking for a later model Ford.
And the rest as they say, is history.
