I like the old tractors, wanted to restore one and maybe use it for some mowing, maintaining the drive etc, but more for saving a piece of history for my son and grandson.

I bought an 8N that needed the carb fixed. Found out later the motor was trash. I think that was 41200, sold it for maybe 900.

I liked the Ferguson's, wanted a 35, but came across a 30 in rough shape for about 800 + hauling. I started to look for parts and came across the stuck one. She wanted 1000 firm, we traded some guns. It's very nice, just stuck. Too nice to part out. The plan now was switching motors, but I didn't want to forever scrap the other. So now the plan was to rebuild the stuck one and fix both tractors. But now, the possibility of a rebuilt or at least a running motor for 300 pops up. Thus my long battle and confusion over what to do.

I have offered them for sale, but people want the live pto, or don't want to give anything for them.

I don't need it right now, I have my modern tractor for work.

If I could find someone to teach me how to rebuild it right, I'd feel better. But I can't even find a place near me to do machine work.

A lot of people always say NAPA, my 2 NAPA's barely know what a tractor is.

I'll have to figure something out soon though.

Thanks for your thoughts.
