Getting my first tractor

3rd party site and photo without description

Well, a friend of the family gave me a 1951 ford 8n that had been sitting in thier back yard in the woods for more than 5 years without being touched. All I had to do is go up to New Hampshire and retrieve the tractor. So this past saturday a friend of mine and I rented a trailer, hooked it up to his dodge PU with a V10 and off we went to get this tractor with a box of tools and new 6 volt battery. When we got there I could not even see the tractor in the woods (the last I saw the piece was in the winter and there were no leaves on the trees. Anyways, we checked for spark and had none so we repleced the points, condensor and while at it the plugs. we drained the turpintine out of the tank and cleaned the bowel under the tank and lines as well as the passageways in the fitting. Well now we has a sparking cranking tractor. now we had to take the carb apart so that we could clean it out and loosen up the needle and seat so that we would get gas in the bowel. We had not come with a carb kit so we made a gasket for the float bowel and after several times taking the carb on and off and then finally using spit to lube the needle so it would drop down consistantly we got the tractor to fire and run. We had to strap up the loader becuase the hydrolics were not working, cut down a dozen trees and finally was able to drive the tractor out of the woods at 5pm. What an experience!! this is my first tractor and my hopes are to restore it to its original condition. 'well thats my story'!!

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
