I went to a sale a couple years ago that had an 8 N tractor on it. I stopprd the day before when they were setting things up and looked at the tractors that were for sale. At this time they all had drawbars and 3 point hitches on them. The day os the sale the drawbars and 3 point hitches were gone. I asked the one son about them and he said the auctioneer told them sell them seperate as they would bring more money that way. So i decided then I did not want any of the tractors they had. But id id buy a complete 3 point hitch and a short drawbar for less than 20.00. I needed these for another tractor that I was working on. I then left the sale so I don't know what the rest sold for. I was at another sale where i knew the guy all my life. He had several small tractors and they ran them all out to the line to be sold. I was talking to one of his sons and he told me that the family was going to bid on the one tractor. Well along comes a dealer and walks over to the tractors and mess around with them. I saw him screw the carb adjustment out so they would not start. Just before they were to sell the son and I went and readusted the carb so they would start and stood by them until they we sold.

In That situation the person that messes with something like that tractor is a crook for sure and needs to be run off the auction grounds.I guess I'm a Nanny sometimes I was at a neighbor's estate sale and someone messed with a rare Oliver I had sold the man that died awhile before he died.Great tractor ran like a top but wouldn't start come to find out someone had taken out the rotor button.Anyway when it wouldn't start and bidding started slow I spoke up and told the crowd what I knew about the tractor and that I'd guarantee I'd get it running before the end of the day it bought a good price and I knew the buyer anyway so we had it running in short order.
