  • Tim gave me quite a bit of credit for my restorations of my 9 and 8Ns but they would not have been complete without one of Tim's original Ford tractor tool kits in each tool box. They were one of my first purchases and I have gotten some good use from them. Installing the rear light wiring clamps on the brake shafts can only be done with the original Ford pliers in those kits. Everyone should have one, he does a nice job.

  • Check your email Steve. I sent you something you'll find interesting, but may have a defunct addy.

  • Thanks for the kind words Steve. I tried to find more pictures of your 9N work-in-progress but couldn't here in the archives. I know you sent me a lot when you were doing it but I lost them when the flash drive I had them on got corrupted. Your work deserves to be in a document on how to do a correct restoration -like John Smith did, tearing down the entire tractor and rebuilding each and every component. I saw an old B&W photo of your 9N in an od NTC calendar and noticed it has a Sherman Shift Lever. I forgot about that detail.

  • I'll see if I can load up a couple of CD's with photos of the 9N and 8N over the course of their restoration and send them over to you.

  • Kudos to you too my friend. Much of the knowledge we gain is learned from many others as well. My old friend and mentor Marvin Baumann once told me you can learn something new about these old Fords virtually every day. I've learned how right he was.
