I may be taking delivery of the Farmall BN that elonged to my grandfather. This probably wont happen till next spring but it could be sooner. Thistractor has been used by my brother for the past 30 years or better but has sat for the last several years. Giving what he is going through at the moment, he has decided that I should have it, figuring I may be able to work on it a little and eventually bring it back to its original glory. Nothing would please me more. I asked him what it needed and he said it seems to have a governor problem. You can rev the engine but you can't bring it back down, It just runs faster and faster. That's all I got as he's still pretty weak. What am I possibly looking at here?
I don't think this tractor has an ounce of paint left on it but it has never sat outside so its good and solid. If I could get it right mechanically, I wouldn't mind finding someone to paint it once I could afford to do so. I'm not set up to work on anything this size. I have such good memories of riding on this tractor when I was small so, like the Pond, I want to keep it around. Not sure what I'll ever do with it other than take it for a drive now and then but, that's enough, isn't it?
