My Project

Well gentlemen, I brought my prize home on Saturday. Turns out it is a 1941 9N based on the serial number.
It was dark when I looked at it but I swore that the engine turned that night. That's the first thing I look for. Well, it wouldn't turn Saturday. I knew it had been sitting outside for a quite a while so the first thing I thought of was rusty cylinder walls. So, I popped the head off. The cylinders and everything else looked nice and clean. Looked like it had a frame in rebuild, just like the guy said. Next thing I looked at was the tranny. The shifter boot was not set in over the tranny so when I took off the top cover a found a couple of inches of ice in the bottom locking everything up. So I split the tractor and got most of the ice out. Bearings are all pitted so I will be doing a tranny rebuild. I think I am also gonna do the Hyd pump and put in a new clutch while I got her apart. To be honest, I don't really mind. I like puttering with these old rigs and I also like to know what I have when I'm done. It should be a fun project. I still have a couple of months before the weather warms up. I am sure I will need some more advice before I am done.

Always remember freezing temperatures can change things. What did the Hydraulic fluid looks like when you pulled the dip stick?
Everybody needs a project. Hopefully that price was right.

No hydraulic fluid. They drained everything when they did the rebuild and left it empty for a year.....outside. When they realized they were not gonna finish, they sold it.

Looks like you jumped in feet first instead of trouble shooting and trying it before it got to the point it is going to cost you big $$. Always best to try things with out puling parts and all before pulling parts and finding you cause your self more and more problems

Yup, I usually jump in too quick. But the Price was $850 so I figured I could afford to do some work to it.

Even when I buy one for $100 which I had done a good number of times I start with trouble shooting then go in deeper as needed. We have a IH 300U that we payed $100 for and it drove off the trailer under it own power and that was less then 24 hours after we got it
