    Pretty neat, you ought to look around, a company named Funk made a conversion kit to put a flat head V8 in 8&9Ns, be kinda differant.


    I have a bunch of old iron, everything is John Deere, but I had an 8N with a front end loader on it, talk about tough to steer.

    Tractor restoration is huge in my town.
    Some of you might see if you receive RFD-TV on sat or cable.
    They do shows on restoration. Also tractor pulls. Some of the tractors have the same engine as funny cars.

    I sometimes remember the old brands. Mccormick, Farm-all, IH,.others.
    Tracers work both ways.

    Look's like a pretty good red belly. I have an 800 D red belly myself. My favorite though is my John Deere model M. Ain't hard to figure that one out. I've seen a front end loader on a 9N, but not an 8N. Steering was 90 percent by the brake's.

    Have you ever tried an old John Deere 2 cylinder? We've got to get you seeing green so you'll put the farmalls out to pasture. LOL

    Have fun with the old girl.

    I'd love to have an old tractor... but unfortunately, I don't think my current yard is even big enough to turn one around in.
