Some of the tractors are already packed away for the winter, my favorite is still getting used daily though. Wink. Pulling some small logs around for the little cabin project.

What have you guys been doing with your Ford's?

Pick one! LOL

This one's getting an engine transplant, different tires/rims, new
brakes, radiator, front axle pin, carb rebuilt, ROPS removed etc.



The Jubilee loader tractor is working hard as always.
Here, removing the afore mentioned ROPS.



The 8N is getting the original engine rebuilt and a "restoration".



The 3000 with the cab has a recently added snowblower that I just
put new bearings in. It was a nice weekend to do that outdoors.

Not much, except a friend from church came over last Fri and drove the 960 and 640 around the yard a while. He had never been on a NF and loved it. He also drove the cub and said he had never been on an offset. This is the guy who is looking for a 961D wf. Now he thinks gas is ok. As is NF. Good test drive!!

6610 hasn't done anything since we finished clipping weeds in pastures, need to unhook the brush hog and put it away
5000 has the hay spear on for feeding cows.
4000's hooked to the grinder mixer.
4000SU's still waiting in line to go in the shop to replace the broken crank.
4500's also in line for the shop, bearing making noise in the trans.
881's just setting around, may put the grader box on it tomorrow to level the bedding in the poultry barns, new birds coming in next week.

Got a neighbors 5030 in the shop replacing the clutch, should be done tomorrow.
Our Dodge Dakota blew a head gasket so I guess it'll go in before the 4000SU.

My 4500 TLB is slowly going back together, got the bushings on the front axle, and axle support, it can roll on it's own four wheels again.

My 971D gets used a lot. Raking, baling, and most recently spreading some lime. It was great to go out at 40 degrees and have it fire right up. I had problems starting it for years. A few years ago I sent the pump out to a guy who charged a third of the going rate to rehab it, just to have it come back the same. This spring I took it to the local shop. It cost me $717.00 but it was worth every penny. It starts right up every time, cold or hot, and has a lot more power. It was worth every dime to get it done right.

Just sitting and running when needed. The 2000D is a '63 with about 3800 hours, I bought back in the late 80's, proofmeter intact and working, no wrenches on engine. The '65 3000D has close to 6000 hrs, I did an inframe when I bought it back in the ebarly 1990's...PO had removed air inlet hose to intake manifold. Tops worn out, bottoms were ok. No big repairs, lift cylinder kits and things like gens,starters and water pumps over the years.

The 1954 Ford NAA is sitting in the barn waiting on next spring most likely. Don't have much work for it until it's time for it to rake hay and move equipment around. May get a paint job this winter, haven't decided yet.

I've never seen a snowblower impellor oriented the way yours is. Will be interesting to see how it works with the impellor situated like that.
