My original thought was to rob what I need for my other 8N but this one runs too nice to part out. I think I will rewire it, add new tires, fix the fuel tank and give it to my daddy this fall. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

I love seeing a tractor in the rear view mirror. No matter how I drive, they stay right on my tail. If you are going to give it to your dad, why not paint it too? Either way it will be a great gift. Good Luck, Rick

I think it's a 48. I didn't check the numbers on it. It's been converted to 12V. Paint is on my mind but I like paint to be perfect and that's when I tend to go overboard. The guy I bought it from rebuilt the carb and put a new starter on it. I got a great deal. It has the typical wheel issues but they are still holding together so I will run them while I look for a deal on more.

Right now I'm sitting in an airport making my punch list for it and trying to keep it from getting out of hand!!!

Much to nice to part.
Your Dad will love it, I'm sure.

You could get a less meticulous friend to paint it for you?
