Hi,
This is my first post. We recently lost a fully restored early '50's 8n in a wildfire in Oregon. Our insurance agent wants a picture of the data plate. I don't remember seeing it, can someone tell me where to look?

Thanks,

Jim

Your tractor(s) are covered under your homeowners policy unless you opted to have a specific extra policy specific for the tractor and/or vintage antiques or things.

You do not have to accept the insurance Company's first offer. Find a few tractors in similar condition to yours that are for sale and submit the pictures to the Adjuster.

What the heck does the data plate have to do with insurance??? Save all your pictures of your restored 8N, close-up on engine block serial number included, and any records/receipts of what all you did on your restoration. The data plate was riveted to the battery tray but won't tell you anything. It goes to show you what insurance companies know about vintage tractors. Idiots.

Thank you all for the fast reply. We lost several antique vehicles that we used ever day and the insurance adjuster would rather call call them junk. Fortunately, I have pictures and videos of them in action.

Sorry to hear that. And to clarify a little more on what 8NChris said, it's not really a data plate, the tractor serial number is stamped on the block just below the head, as his picture shows. You'll probably need to wire brush that area to read the numbers.
