Pics of the toy. I got it home and gave a slight tug on the fan blade and the crank moved. This is after the owner saying the engine has been frozen for 20 years. Hmm. . . Don't have a desperate need for money and fixing one up might also help to thin out my selection of other 8N parts. The wife mighty need some convincing though. . . Tomorrow I pick up the Back Blade. It had a data plate on it, looked like a bullet shaped Ferguson. Didn't desire to look too close with the owner standing there. Owners get annoyed when you fix it in front of them. Now to see if I can post pics as promised. . . This was brought home primarily for the rear wheel weights.
Side dist, no proof meter, 6V original and will stay 6V original. This might actually be a very close restoration. Eventually, maybe, after a lot of things.
Such as the Demonstrator as seen in the last pic, which is waiting on the 881D which is waiting on. . . .

The industrial engine probably does not have sleeves and valve seats are not case hardened. I have a 2N with a late model 8N side mount and there are no sleeves in it.

Wayne,

I guess I was even luckier than I thought. Mine came with two top links; an OEM and a British made one and a table full of other pieces.

Agree with the industrial motor, under hood dust bowl? How much weight were you lifting with you orange machine?

That weight plate is about 600 pounds. About the same weight as the filled rear tire. The tire being a bit heavier I believe, also filled with 43 gallons of calcium.

I agree.

Looks like an early model 8N with a later model industrial engine.

Wow! You got a whole tractor! I'm referring to the three point top link. They were standard when the tractors was bought new. You seldom see a top link with a sold used tractor.

What a steal!

Weights, tires and a tool box too

Such a deal

All for $500, it couldn't be true. :)

$500 for a non running tractor is a fair price. Especially when told the engine was frozen for 20 years. A few things I need to look into, The tool box on the fender? Ign key stuffed under the dash and doesn't look right just from what I briefly noted without looking under the dash. I am thinking about adding a proof-meter to this machine. The steering box is extremely hard to turn. A few things to fix along the way.
