There are several other members here with much knowledge on these old N's, some with a lot more experience and knowledge than I, and that is why we are here -to help newbies like yourself. We all were in your shoes at some point so sharing and helping just comes with the territory. One of the beautiful aspects of these old Fords is that there is always something new to learn. We have a wealth of information offered here in additional forums. Our HOW-TO's holds many self-help, Do-It-Yourself projects and our MANUALS forum contains scans of many od the original manuals on parts, tractors, implements, and other related subjects and it doesn't cost anything to download any or all if you like. Best to create a new folder on your desktop to save it all in for handy reference. Some fellows have taken the time to put together some valuable technical information documents that are every bit as useful as any wrench. One is Bruce(VA)'s "75 Tips for N Owners" and another is "WIRING PICTOGRAMS by JMOR". Download copies and put in a binder that you can take to the barn or tractor shed when you need to work on your tractor. If you don't already have the essential manuals, get them and read religiously. We have some like an older version of the I&T F-04 Manual and most MPC's - Master Parts Catalogs. There is also John Smiths’ now archived web site with a lot of the history and timeline factors of the N-SERIES tractor –see LINK below. Before you start buying a bunch of new parts and just replacing them, get yourself the manuals and know about the safety and operating issues prior to turning the key. Have fun but be safe!
