Will 8N fender skins fit Hundred series frames?

I am painting a 640 and the original fenders are junk. Even though I am probably over restoring it, I just can't bring myself to cough up the big money for the original type Hundred series fenders. Since it is a 640 and nearly identical to a NAA and I am not really going for originality, I thought about buying a set of script 8N fender skins and putting them on the original frames. I kinda like the looks of them better anyways, and I'm not going to show it, so I don't have to deal with the "original police". I also have a set of the X01 series and up fenders and thought about going with them, but they aren't quite good enough for this tractor and probably both need skins also, but they are solid and I hate cutting them up when they have some value but the originals have none. It does have 13.6 rubber on it so I am not sure which way to go. Would like to hear some input on the subject. Thanks.

After looking at my old fenders and many different pictures of skins and driving by my neighbor’s 135 Ferguson, I am pretty sure they won’t work on my frames. My 640 has the later 56-57 style frames and the struts are very heavy on the bottom and that along with them being dished in at the bottom makes me think that. From what I can tell, the 8N style skins are flat at the bottom. I think I could have made the hoop type frame work, but probably not worth it with the newer style. Looks like I may have to go with the X01 and up style even though I like them the least, but is the cheapest. Thanks for the replies.

Save yourself some money and time. Just bolt the fenders and
frames from the other tractor onto the axle. IIRC, anything from

a 9N through the 3 cylinder x00 series will fit. Just not "original".

No script, etc.

Hang on to those 800 fender mainframes and put skins on them. The aftermarket fender frames resemble the OEM, I dont think they are as thick. I think they were originally interference or spin welded, whatever they call that. I like the flatter profile fenders cause they make a good armrest.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
