Thanks Tim! It's hard to see in the picture but the grill guard is bent lol. My dad believes the tires are original to the tractor also, but they are cracked throughout pretty badly. I need R1's for my property anyway. It is still a 6 Volt system but has been converted to a negative ground. My dad was adamant that the 6 volt system was adequate and the only reason manufacturers switched to 12 volt was to save money on the thinner/lighter wires etc. I think the carb was rebuilt in 2015. It still runs with the choke fully in, but when pulled out slightly the engine miss is a little less.
I have the original manual, the I&T Ford shop manual, and a parts catalog. I've also been reading the "75 tips for N-Owners". I've pretty much been on an internet information binge the last few days lol.
Fortunately I'm a mechanically inclined individual thank to my dad so I'm not afraid to dig in where needed. I've included an image of the wiring diagram on this tractor. Please let me know if you see any flaws. Thanks again for your input Tim!
