I talked to Linda. They were in a similar situation 25 years ago as I am currently, and bought the Ford. A few years later, they bought another tractor with a front end loader. The new tractor was also safer for her to use. The new tractor became their primary tractor.

Last she remembers, it worked well, but it had a bad water pump. They bought a new pump, hoses, radiator, misc parts to R&R while they were there. Husband took all apart 5-8 years ago, and never got back to it. 2 months after we moved in, he died from heart problems.

As someone else noted, she's looking to get it out of her garage. I discussed what you've all posted, and she realizes it is considered a non-runner. She is willing to negotiate, is not totally opposed to towing it to my place, I work on it when able.


There is a new water pump installed.

There is a new radiator, with shroud attached on a shelf.

The hood and gas tank are sitting is a wheel barrow.

She mentioned, and I do agree, the gas tank seems either new or rebuilt.
There is a pan with misc parts. Seems like a gas line and the sediment bowl.

No oil on dip stick.

Some parts (water pump, hood, fenders) have been painted. The rest of the tractor is red.

No battery.

The alternator bracket is a broken washer welded to a piece of threaded rod. Looks real hokey.

New rear tires.

I don't see how a wrench is going to fit on the crank to turn it over. Looks real small, but if you guys say it will, I believe you. I noticed a hole, maybe the hand crank hole(?) on the front. Will a big screwdriver fit? Turn screwdriver with a wrench?

She has a few implements she'd be willing to sell as well.

Im tempted, but financial quicksand is in the back of my head.

Thanks for reading.

If the crankshaft bolt is "real small" it is not OEM and something else is up - perhaps an aftermarket crankshaft driven hydraulic pump setup. A big screwdriver won;t get the job done.

If I were you I would get a several year head start on Linda - skip the N altogether and buy a newer tractor.
