Again, my father-in-law asked if I would like his 9N tractor.  I told him I was interested.  He's wanting to get it out of the yard.  He has 2 Kubota's and the 9N is just sitting and rotting.  He says it ran, and drove it where it is parked today.  I have every other Friday off.  He would like for me to come over and help him get it out and started again.  He'll bring it over to the house.

A few pix of it.  By what I figure, it is a 1940 Ford 9N with a newer 8N engine.  Once running, it will need some freshening up.

cool old machine, like how it has the toolbox.... I love my old IH, we have allot of property but I still dont use it too much because of the size of it & how much of a pain it is to maneuver around... Those machines are not worth a whole heck of allot to sell so you might as well fix it up, put some paint on it & do something with it...

I don't know if I have long term use of it, but if it works well, I do have some immediate need for it.  I need to work the back yard a bit better for drainage.  Beyond that, I have access to a tiller and maybe do that garden I keep thinking about.

Don't get me wrong, I love my Sears Suburbans, but there is only so much I can do with a tractor their size, when one of these could do it much faster.  Twisted Evil 

Future thoughts...

Restore it, take it back to original colors. (Battleship Grey)

Resto-mod it, It already has the wrong engine, 12v upgrade and what appears wrong colors. (Probably go this route and paint it to be my own)

Free is a good deal. There's always been a Ford Jubilee in my family(with a backhoe grafted onto the back, but that's irrelevant). She's always ran great, even after not having a air filter for 40+ years. 6v battery always gave trouble though. I'm sure that 8n will run nice when you get it running.
