Finding BN parts-

First of all, thanks to everyone who had a suggestion on the gas tank.
Now for a bigger quandry.
A few months ago I bought B for parts. In doing some research on S/N, I discovered that originally it was a BN, but had been altered.
Anyone know how to put it back like it used to be?
I got the engine loose, and ended up not taking anything off it-at least nothing that can't easily be replaced.
Can you find the narrow axles, or can the long ones be cut down?
Are there any other differences?

The B only came with the tricycle style front axle. I gather yours has a wide front. You can't cut the wide front axle down and make a tricycle out of it. Your best bet is to find a salvage yard and locate a B front bolster and pedestal. If someone put an A front on your tractor, then the steering gear and steering shafts will be wrong too, so you'll have to get all that from the salvage yard too. Note that A Farmall C steering gear is similar to the B, but will not work on the B. The steering shaft comes out on the opposite side.

I think he meant rear axles. A BN has shorter rear axles than a B.

The left axle is much longer than the A's, the right side might be the same.

I think you can replace the axles with A axles, even though there are some minor differences. I don't recall right now what the differences are, I could probably tell you if I was at home. The platform floor is different, but there again you could use the A parts.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
