You have an 8N. Follow the link Bruce (OR) attached for more info.

Re " Needs carb. , starter and right side drawbar w/adjuster." you will be much happier to have oem parts rebuilt. Iíve been working on old cars, trucks & tractors now for over 50 years. Whenever possible, I get OEM component parts rebuilt. Given the high probability that any new component part purchased for an N tractor is made somewhere overseas w/o adequate quality control, chances are very good that you will be disappointed. If you do not have a local rebuild shop, give these guys a call for a quote & shipping info:

Automotive Manufacturers Inc
2400 N Lombardy St Richmond, VA 23220
(804) 321-6861

They do mail order work. They rebuild carbs, clutches, pressure plates, water pumps, alternators, generators, starters & reline brakes.

These guys should be able to help you w/ used parts:

John Smith

Rod Mondor at Forest Lake Tractor or 651 464

Ken at Long Lane Tractor or 717-367-8610

For new parts, I use Just8N's or Dennis Carpenter.

The first thing you will need i a set of manuals; see tip # 39 at the link as well as the "How-To's" at the top of this page.

And lastly............. do not buy a new part for the tractor until you can answer this question: how do I know the part on the tractor is defective?
