I was at the farm the other day and discovered a rear scoop for the 8N 3-POINT HITCH, it had a trip lever to empty the scoop. Is this 8N "rear scoop" very effective to use?
I also found a "rear boom" attachment for the 8N, it is about 8 feet long with a place to connect a chain on the end. You raise the lift arms to raise the boom and pick things up. It seems to me the the lifting power of the boom would be very limited because of the leverage and the front end of the tractor would come off of the ground.
The attachments are in usable condidion and the 8N is up and running.
I have a chance to buy another 8N that has not been run in several years because it was smoking very bad.
Now here is the question, will the 8N with the rear 3-point hitch boom attachment be strong enough to lift the engine out of the other 8N and set it in a trailer to cary to a machine shop to be rebuilt, and again pick up the rebuilt 8N engine out of the trailer and swing the engine back into the other 8N and stab the shaft and bolt in back in. Of course the other 8N will have been blocked up under the transmission.
This is out in the country and a helping hand is hard to find.
Thank in advance for your responses.
