  • Here's a pic of the front axle on my '42. I backpainted all the parts as they were assembled...then got carried away. In the picrure you can see the early support, the extended axle pin and the handcrank in the storage position. You can also see the Fairbanks magneto on the front cover.

  • Thanks for sharing, must be a real quest to come up with all the correct parts. I have a 43 in the garage but its a non-war horse painted red/grey

  • Merry Christmas Fellas,

    I am finally able to tinker in the garage a bit now and again. I have started back with the front end of the warhorse. The center axle needed a few cracks fixed and will be going out to the machinist's to be bored and bushed. I also built up the center axle pivot pin that is special to the warhorse 2N. That will need to be turned back to spec. Drove out the old spindle bushings and cut off the welded draw key style steering arm. The axle support will go to work with me and get straightened in the press.

    Sand blast the parts and then put the front end back together! That will be a nice start.

  • Hey Fellas,

    All hail the most incredible parts chaser, Rodney Mondor(Tractor Rod). I now have a perfect NOS dash for a warhorse 2N with the ammeter knockout in place!

    All I can say is wow......I can hardly wait to dig into this project and bring this tractor to perfect. Thanks a million Rod!!!!!!

  • Good afternoon Fellas,

    I cleaned a carb. today for my 2N warhorse. I also installed the double throw choke shaft in it. Just so you who haven't seen one..here it is. This allows for choke operation while handcranking the tractor out front. You will still have a choke knob on the dash as well.

  • Hey all,

    I got two belts today. Thank you to Kirk-NJ for bringing an old belt along when he visited here. I was able to measure his and get right in the ballpark. Anyhow, I slipped both on...not much room for error. The correct belt barely went on, the one inch longer belt was too long for the tensioner to take up slack.

    So here it is.......Gates green stripe TR22344. Write it down. ;)

  • A little more progess on the 2N. I removed the manifold,tossed it in scrap, the govenor, and the valve covers. I cleaned the side of the block up. I was glad to see the adjustable tappets. I know the tractor runs well, was just worried I was going to find mushroom valves. :)

    I also went digging in my cabinet for more of the warhorse specific parts that i have been collecting. Here's a pic of the starter block off plate.

    Also got the idler cleaned up and mounted on the engine. I'll try to get a belt for it on Saturday.

    The list of parts keeps growing....Just 8n's phone will be ringing...again on Monday! LOL!

  • Worked On Warhorse Today
  • Doesn't seem like a big deal, but it sure felt good to me! I have been looking at it all winter....then looking away quickly. lol! I've started putting the front end back together, installing new spindle bushings, new water pump.

    I have two correct spindles with the drawkey style steering arms ready to go, this tractor had one welded solid and the other was a later woodruf key style. Now to drum up the correct hardware and bolt the axle support back on. I'll shoot a pic of the front end with the 2N axle pin installed when I get it bolted up!

    Just thought I'd share ;)
