Sorry it took so long for a reply. I am in CA and mom is in FL, with the tractor, so I am trying to get information together. It turns out that the gasket set mom has is for something else. I talked with the mechanic that rebuilt the 8N with my dad in 2007. He said at that time, the tractor was purring like a kitten, but it has sat outside for several years. I do not know anymore than that, but I have additional photos I can email you if you would like. We do have the headlights for it, and the hood is off because the last thing dad was going to do was have someone fix a rust spot on the hood. Please let me know if you would like more information. I was about to re-post this with the additional information and photos.
It is an 8N391477 Manufactured in approximately April 1952. It was running very well but after Dad died, it has not been started. (2014). We have the owner's manual and parts manual.
Please let me know if you would like additional photos, more information, or to look at it.
