  • Yep It Started
  • Hello from Montana. Have not been on this site for some time. We just survived one of the worst winters in Montana history. Tremendous amounts of snow, extreme below "0" temperatures, and most figured the snow was here permanently. We also had unusual amounts of heavy ice. When we could finally "Find" our 52 8N, my 10 year old grandson, Ramsey Charles, said, "granddad, we have to get the tractor started"! After such a terrible winter, sitting outside in the open, he said, It might not start. I said, "i bet it will start, as those 8N's are amazing".
    Well, first try, she started perfectly. Was ready for a long drive to shake out all the cobwebs.
    They are amazing!

  • You guys who live in Montana must be tough people. Indiana is bad enough for me. The old Ford tractors are amazing for sure.

  • Not sure about "tough", as I used to live in Hawaii. So every March I wonder why the hell I don't still live there!
    Yes, the old Fords are amazing. After that winter and the old 6 volt battery hung in there. They are fun however.
