Hood, and wheel hubs...say that it is a very early 8N....IF...the serial# says it is actually of a 1947 vintage.

The "odd" looking hole you see in the rear side of the hood, is just the air-intake, for the oil-bath breather!!!!, and, missing it's cover!!

No rare parts seen on that 'N', as far as I can see.!!!???

An "AN" indicates a "Distillate". Look at the exhaust manifold for a "preheater.

Glen.......that is a dealer installed optional extra for operating in extra DUSTY conditions. In the long ago time, weed control consisted of "shovels" scraping the dry dirt which for some reason made dust. The vanes actually act like a centrifugal fan and throws the dust down into the removable glass jar. Usually today contain small miniature green'n'yellow toy tractor. ........cauph-cauph Dell
