Anyone into old Tractors? I bought a 1941 Ford 9N in January. It's become my new distraction from working on my truck.

I'm into the little ones....not the cheapo crap they call lawn tractors, but garden tractors from the 60s-70s...made from real steel, not tin and plastic.

A friend of mine has/had one of those...should ask him if he still has it and what he intends to do with it.

I have my 9n completely tore down, hope to have it restored by the end of August....shouldn't be hard as mechanically it is proving to be sound.

Heres my little fella, 1948 Farmall Cub, and my beloved 1959 T5 crawler sold to Tackaberry, (lack of room).  ALL I/H, nothin Green here.  My Dad has 20+ Cub Cadet Originals and 4 to 5 larger tractors all restored.

Jeeze that little crawler is real purdy..I love it ..seems to nice to even drive up the lawn..And Poncho's mower beatiful, like to have that for my yard another really nice piece.. And the origial question..I have had a couple of those Ford 8Ns great little tractor..retored mine as well sold now I really needed a live power take off..So I got me a Massey 135 with a little 3 cyl perkins diesel live power take off..works just great for me in the country.. I still have one of those belt pulleys that bolts onto the Power take off for An 8N and a ferguson 2 furrow plow in the barn ..Don't think I will ever use again I used to use the pully drive to run a buzz saw cutting fire wood but we put a water furnace in about 20 years ago and now that the kids are long gone there ain't no more garden any either so the plow has to go one of these days too lota stuff to come out of the barn sucks getin old and havin to clean out the barn to get rid of stuff.. darn stuff why do we collect so much stuff..cry

Not sure but i think the 9N was the first tractor ever exported to Russia by Henry Ford.

Such a small.small world. I was in George's Suburban when he called you in July to tell you he'd buy that crawler Molten..
We were in Athens for the Farmerville show and he asked pops and I what we thought of the color scanner photo you must have sent to him..
Great little rig, I've been over it a hundred times.

For those that have never seen George Tackaberry's collection....take the opportunity if it ever presents!

I grew up driving a farmall like that. Cutting hay with the side cutter. Pushing snow in the winter. My cousin has it now at his horse farm. Uses it for clearing out the isles and other odd jobs.
