8n Ford tractor

8n Ford tractor

Sounds good running but hard to start. Good tires except notch in left rear tire. When i listed this tractor before, my intention was full disclosure with no intention of misleading anyone. One fault i hadn’t thought about in so long, i actually forgot to mention it. That was the right side brake doesn’t work.

Two more small problems arose because the mechanic did a quick fix when i should have asked him to replace the fuel line and connections. Now the fuel bowl drips and the connection to the carburetor leaks.
Also while we were doing the work, the radiator blew in several places. Then there were the small things mentioned in the previous ad (hole in upper part of airbath cylinder, air intake boot needs replaced, notch in left rear tire, oozing right wheel when the wrong fluid was used). There are several new parts installed (fan belt, generator, muffler, wiring harness, solenoid, ammeter, key switch) in past year. The 3pt hook-up and pto clutch work good.
I believe the engine to be in good condition per compression and maintenance but it’s hard to start and probably will need a new carburetor and, if you really want to restore it, a a new gas tank is needed. The tractor looks a little rougher than appears in the photos.

Very restorable but i’m tired of it and set the reserve price quite low – salvage price.
