An off shoot from the barn thread. BTW I love tractors too. Who here did the tractor restore in the garage (I searched)? I believe it was orange. Show what you got. I'll post up pics later.

'91 Massey Ferguson 231 w/ Perkins diesel. Dad just bought that one. I made him buy a diesel cause there's less shit for him to fuck up. We got it cheap as hell because it "needed a clutch." Turns out it just needed the linkage to be adjusted.

'48 Ford 8N. Abused so much it's been "restored" by dad and I in the past 15 years. Looks like Ill be going through it.... again, in a few weeks. Dad likes to run it until it won't run anymore. Then he leaves it out in a field for a year. Then he expects it to just start right up. Funny thing is, sometimes it does. Dad always thinks that it "just needs spark plugs, it aint' got no power."




I don't have pictures of either.

I tried to let my uncle to let me restore the old Fordson he has. Sadly it went elsewhere. Old iron is awesome. Of course John Deere's are popular, but I still dig Farmalls, Massey's, and AC's and I spied a old Oliver under a collapsed shed at my last step dads farm. 2,8, and 9N's are pimp too. I meant to snap a pic of the old tractors in the weeds at my uncle's place last weekend.

That's pretty cheap, but I'd hold out on an 8N. You get 4-speed, more power, and better hydraulics. It'll have clutch on the left and F-R brakes on the right. The pedal configuration is the easiest and fastest way to tell if you're looking at an 8N or a 9N/2N. I'd try to get a post 1950 model 8N due to the distributer being on the side instead of on the front. The front distributer is a PITA to change a cap. Also the spark plug wires tend to get destroyed by brush and the fan belt. If you want to really be pimp, there's some way to put a flat head Ford V8 in it, but I'm not sure the details.

That one is 100x better than ours when we got it. Ours was one big pile of rust, and it was attached to a tree where vines had entangled it for 10 years.

My uncle has a Cat, Massey and 48 Power Wagon all lined up and rusting away. He says he like the way they look sitting there. :sad:. I have tried many times to get the Power wagon atleast.

Unless you are a purist, the best upgrade ever to a 8n is an alternator.

Sweet international. had a 41 with the narrow front end. was my favorite tractor to drive. it pulled a grain dril very well and actually had been rolled over one time and that someofabitch started every single time. little starting fluid and turn right over.

my 1086 dual wheel is what i plow with now..... i have and always will be an international fan. i laugh at all the drug store cowboys with their John Deere shit. I always spent more time working ON a John Deere than actually using it for work!

There's a large group of tractor collectors that ride in the local parade here. Wish I would have snapped some pics but I was to busy drooling over them to remember I had the camera.

I've done vintage garden tractors and stationary farm engines in the past. Still have a few left from when I collected them:

1935 International "LA" 1 1/2 -2 1/2hp
1912 United 1 3/4 hp
1934 Maytag 3/4 hp
1950 David Bradley (sold by Sears)

Sucks I don't have photos of them

Gettting time to pick up a soon to be mine 1950 (irrc) MF TO-35. It was used on my grandparents farm, where my dad rebuilt the engine, I grew up on it there and at my parents.

Only decent picture...of course doing some redneck work.


My parents upgraded to a 2001 JD 4WD 4510, 40 hp diesel.
Like theirs:

Then I used to get to play with this one once and awhile

I take my grandfather's (currently my uncles, for the moment till I can get it) 67' Cockshutt 770 to shows around here. Need a trailer for it though, 13 mph is just too damn slow to drive the thing back and forth....
