My Grandpa bought an 8N in '53 (?) as the boys started leaving the farm. He had married into a very horsey family but it was past time to retire the work horses. He did a lot of work with that tractor, a lot of it well over its weight class. They have terrible brakes and are too light for serious loads but nobody got killed. An old guy did roll and get badly torn up on an 8N on the farm I currently occupy... Apparently my cousin is going to fix that bad boy up with a modern distributor, hopefully they get it properly weighted and use it for sensible chores.
