I don’t know about Witherspoon. Chances are you’re looking for power steering, wide front axle, and live pto. MF 240 - 250 come to mind, along with JD 1050 or 1070. I don’t think 8N Ford would be what you’re looking for.

A Ford 2000 or similar model is pretty common and easy to find. It's a good reliable unit and comes in both a gas and diesel version.

I've been looking for something like that for years. About the only thing from Ford that I wouldn't mind having

One of my favorites ive seen was the 6, 7 and 820 john deere tractors. You could getem with a wide front, thats just an idea. Idk for witherspoon though. Good luck!

Ive always been partial to the International Harvester models.  An IH 504 or 544 may be an option in the 35-40hp range.

I'm partial to Allis Chalmers.  Very simple 4 cylinder engines. I'd suggest a WD45 although a WC or WD is also very handy, I have all 3.
