  • 8N tractor (old tractor stuff )
  • Working on old ford tractors n stuff. I'm 57 btw...
    Don't like reading the older ford guys that give the easiest answer 1st before reading our entire question, and, realizing we've tried all the doodoo on the Inet yadda yadda

  • Sometimes I need to remind myself of these two things:
    Point 1, the folks here are trying to help, not hinder.
    Point 2, the gurus here have seen just about every issue that can be had with these tractors at least a thousand times. Only the description of the issue changes depending on the experience and skill level of the guy asking the question, by his writing ability, even whether he's sober or not.
    I happen to think these guys are pretty darned good at cutting to the chase, getting to the root of the problem, even doing a bit of mind reading sometimes.
    Like the guy asking wants to tell you about what he had for breakfast, his wife's favorite dress and whether he prefers a scotch or sour mash whiskey as he thinks those things pertain to his tractor and these guys have to try to steer him back to the crux of the issue he asked about.
    Sometimes Point 2 can all be very frustrating.
    When that happens it's important to remember Point 1.

  • Ult6ra, that was VERY well said I just wish I was the one that said it. I would love to borrow your words for some other sites that I have if I may.
