I want to do another N ground up build. Hopefully I wont have to get into the trans or rear end! that would make it a refurbished tractor.
I think the tractor will be a 1952,IF the deal dont fall thrue.
First question, who has the best deal for a v8 conversion kit? If this thought cost to much I will rebuild the 4 banger.
I have access to a 1940 V8,trans,radiator, front axle and rearend out of a 1940 Ford Coupe. These parts can be bought for two grand. the engine has 10 mile on a rebuild.
any thoughts?

Iffin you want more power and are going to extend the hood anyway you might as well go with the lincoln V12. It looks like a strecthed 8n.

Would certainly be a eye catcher at shows, Might be a little to radical for my expertise. :sidelaugh
I just hope I hear from the N owner today, I ready to go fetch it.
Oh YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT would be a mill for you!!!!

I do remember seeing one in a 8N I belive.
