Morning,
I have an 8N I need to shut down and repair. It has a bolt on, not the three point, 54B100 Sherman Power Digger and a dozer blade. I believe it is an ARPS. Will these implements bolt up to a TO-30? I found a Ferguson TO-30 on Craigslist's a few hours north of me. Spent many seasons cutting hay with Massey-Ferguson's. Nice to know if the TO-30 stops it can still steer and be pull started.

Sorry for barging in here with 8N shenanigans but I figured this group would know.

Thank's,

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeCome to think of it I have never seen or heard of a Ferguson with an engine upgrade. Guess he had it figured out early on.

Mine was upgraded at some point with a June 14, 1950 six cylinder engine. Kind of a waste it just being a portable power source for the backhoe. I agree on the power. Seems the 4 cylinder was good for the emplements of 1939 but was quickly overtaxed in the 40's.

Clovis, New Mexico. Land of Enchantment, 1001 sunsets. Home to cannon Air Force Base. 20 miles southwest is Portlales, New Mexico, "Peanut Basin of the Nation" say's the sign. That town got one brand new stop light when I was there back in the 70's. It made the front page of the local paper. In the winter, the snow might fall, then comes along the wind and you get brown snow. From snowball fights to Mudball fights.
I owned a pinned Fergy block and even patched one with Block seal. The prospect of a leaky engine would not really deter me for the gain in power, if appropriately priced.

The TO-30 looks like it is in better shape than my 8N. One thing that concerned me was the water in the oil. I deal with one of the Continental engines like that on a stationary welder. We had the machine shop weld it and press the sleeves in. That one worked. I just got off the phone with a tractor collector that said he would replace the block. I am going to pass on the Ferguson for that reason. If anyone is interested the tractor is located in Clint(?). You can find it on Roswell, New Mexico Craigslist's.

Thank's for the input, Chris

It looks like they won't. The wings on the lower bracing bracket are different from mine. Sort of the same shape but minor differences in hole locations would be the deal breaker. Looks like yours has been completely overhauled. Next time my digger arm breaks I am upgrading from 3/8" BOM to 1/2".
Is yours off a TO-30?
When I take some mounting point measurements would you mind comparing them to yours?

Thank's for the photo.

Harry designed the hyd 3 PT system. Ford widely distributed it with his 9N and 2N while Harry did it with the TO-20 and the T0-30 among others. The 8N came around in '48, give or take, and it still used the same sized implements with the same connection points. That '30 would have a fair amount of power more than the 8N. Hate to see you let that '30 slide when it could work out very nicely for you.
Just my 2 cents.
