I bought my 1952 8N twenty-four years ago from my wife's great-uncle. H bought it 27 years before that and had minor trouble with it.
When I got it I put it back to it's original 6V charging system and it's been a good tractor for me too.
Two days ago we were cleaning up the area around our small house we retired in 20 years back. We lived there seven years before we built a new home on the same 8 acres.
I'm posting this because I have not started the 8N in several months. It's lives under a carport and out of the rain and I keep a wood block on the clutch lever to keep it from freezing up. The tractor worked hard the first 10 years cleaning up the 8 acres but the last 14 years or so it's been used to pull a tree stump out to burn or bush hogging along the roadway when the county fails to show up.
Two days ago I went to start it just to push some fence back into place instead of using my 70 year old body weight.
It fired up on the first revolution and did everything ask of it.
Keep yours dry and a good battery in it for when you need it.
