This photo is of my dad with my 1948 8N on the farm where he was born and raised. Please refer to the 8N Restoration Page for tractor details concerning the restoration. Dad purchased this tractor new in August of 1947 with his brother for joint use on Dad's farm and the farm he grew up on.
This is a photo of my dad at our camping location. This was the first time in nearly 10 years that the 8N had run on the farm. I had taken it to dad's home for a retirement project 2 years before. As you can see, while he cleaned out the fuel system & replaced the plugs, he did no other work to it. A close look at the rear wheel will show the fluid stains from the brake seal leaks. At this point, one brake worked about 20%.
This photo is looking down the "sledding hill". At the bottom you can see the areas which have been mowed to support the coming winters fun, while leaving the Wild Strawberry Patch in this area mostly untouched.
Please forgive the shameless plug but, check out some of my commercial pages from the links below. If you see anything you want just drop me a line and we will get together on it. As I am sure you are well aware, restorations are not cheap :-), and these are one of the ways I try to pay for them.
