In Reply to: When did you get your first "N" tractor? posted by Farmer Dan on December 30, 2018 at 12:10:39:
Bought my 52 8N from the daughter/granddaughter of the orig owners. Named him old Ben after the original owner. Came with a 6 foot finished mower. That was in 2003. I went on line to find parts and found John Smiths site. Smiths site had a link to this site and for the first year, I thought they were the same site.
Shortly after I got my 53 Jubilee to get the live hydrolics and the overhead valve motor. To my surprise it came with a hi lo Sherman with the shifter missing. I figured that out from some discussion on this site. I found a shifter from Red Rock put it on and the Sherman works great. I have learned a lot from this site and really appreciate all you guys who share your knowlege.
The first tractor I ever drove was a 520 John deer working on my uncle's dairy farm when I was 12, but for some crazy reason I always wanted an 8N and a Jubilee.
