I've posted before about my Farmall which has been patiently waiting for a new head gasket, got it started today without coolant to move it, and will soon be going to a buddy's place to have the gasket replaced. I recently bought a ford 9n that runs but needs new rims and tires. The 9n will get 8n hubs and 6 lug rims on the front, this tractor is and will stay 6v.
That's our farmall 706,and my Montgomery Ward in the background.

That is weird.  I saved your pic, flipped it, saved it, then added below yours and it still came out sideways!  I'll have Chris look into this.

Well, maybe Kenny has to be the designated "pic flipper"!  :D   Hoping Chris can give us insight on this.

The 2nd pic in the opening post is the one I flipped.  Is that one correct on your screen?  It is sideways on my screen.

Nope, bottom one. Kenny must have fixed it. Don

Funny you mention a 9N Ford. A neighbor stopped by and asked if I had a small tractor for sale as his 9N won't run right. Told him let's see if we can get his tractor running good before he worries about buying something else. So have to pick that up this week. Also an A International from another guy. 

Keep us filled in on how your 9N turns out.

Other than wheels and tires not much is gonna change, it runs great and I don't paint my tractors as I like working them.

Super c hopefully leaving for repair this week, all I've managed to get done on the 9n is procure a set of 8n hubs for the front, a new air cleaner pipe, I have a pair of 15" rims, my focus as of late has been car/truck issues.

Update, super c has new gasket installed problems there fixed, waiting for snow to go away so I can get to the trailer to pick it up. Have all parts for front wheel and hub swap on 9n, once again waiting on weather.

   Good to hear your making some progress.That Super C should make a nice tractor for you. If they had a three point they would make a really nice small acreage tractor. 

  Unfortunately the 9N here is in need of some serious help. Compression is 110-85-95-70 psi. While I had the plugs out each cylinder was pressurized while listening into the other plug holes to check for air leaking across the head gasket. Nothing was heard so I'm hoping the head gasket is OK. As the tractor was running rich I'm hoping the the valves are carboned up and not closing all the way. The carb adjustment screw did nothing so I put a kit in it and changed the plugs. At least it will start and runs now. It pulls without missing but still idles rough. Pulled the distributor, checked and reset the points. Going to load it up with Marvel Mystery oil and put it out in the field under load and hope that things will clean up and the compression comes back up.

   When I did my 8N I got a kit, sleeves pistons, rings, wrist pins and keepers, valves guides springs seals and keepers, rod bearings, main bearings, gasket set. Had the crank polished.  It was in speck for 30 under. The kit was $150. Worked on it more of than on for a week. The crank was gone to town for three days. Cut a plate on my lathe for pulling the sleeves. Cut a pipe with the lathe to drive in the new sleeves. Worst part of the whole job was cleaning parts. Before I  worked on it the high cylinder had 60 lb. The standard fix for an old Ford tractor in this area when they wont start is to convert to 12V. Mine has started first try every time since the rebuild several years ago. and that with the same old 6V battery. I don't do any farm work with it, just snow removal and road maintenance. The same kit I used is now $388. The rest of the parts for a total rebuild can get very expensive.   Don
