Might be a good buy or it might be a money pit. Hard o be sure on a non runner and not all people tell it like lit really is. I would make sure the engine is not locked up from sitting and also that the new parts are there. If you have to buy a radiator and water pump add another $200 to the price if not twice that.

On the old Chevy's I've worked on, you put a socket and wrench on the crank bolt and turn. Does the same apply on a 2N, to see if it's free? When I go down there, I'll check on parts.

Thank you.

Yes that can be done if you can get one in to it or use a hand crank handle if it still has that on it like it should. Me I just make sure the fan belt is tight and grab the fan

Yes although you will likely need an open or box end wrench to get to teh nut. They are also old enough to have a provision for a hand crank to start them - hint, hint....

While you are in the process of evaluating this 2N I'd suggest you research the used tractor market in your neighborhood. The 8N is significant design improvement over the 2N and an NAA or Hundred series even more so. Those newer tractors can usually be purchased for only a small amount more than the earlier 9N/2N and are well worth the extra cash. Many people in your situation quickly discover the limitations of the N-series and trade up to an NAA or later model in short order. And of course in addition to the Fords there are a number of other makes that are also good inexpensive tractors.

If you need a working tractor and not a vintage tractor project I'd look around some before letting that low ball $800 number entice you into what can easily become financial quicksand.
