  • It runs again...
  • After 10 months of tinkering, I got my 1946 2N to run and run healthy at that. This has supposedly not run in many years and has made it through the last few owners as a parts tractor. I got it for free last summer as a parts tractor. I had to buy a starter and solenoid, plugs, wires, points and condenser. So far for the wiring all I have is the ignition and starter circuits. Someone at one time put in a 12v alternator and cut the sides out of the doglegs, on both sides making them quite flimsy. The seat looks to be part of an old office chair mounted on a home made mount. I'll find the parts and paint to make it whole again. 9N252111 is resurrected.

    Now to find a front loader for this one or the 8N.

  • Here is a picture of both when we first got them. My wife is on the '47 8N that has been repainted, rewired and returned to work in my field. The '46 2N is in the background and I haven't done anything cosmetic to it yet.

  • Here is a picture of the 8N in all my glory after paint and light mechanical work. I have set a 45 day limit on the 2N to have it looking as nice in its own respective way. The wheels are untouched because I don't own a floor jack to take them off and treat them right.

  • I won't call you a child but certainly you are a youngster! In a week and a half I will turn that 87 mark!

    Keep working at it but you'll never catch up.
