On my way into town the other day I stopping at the sale lot. It is one of those where you can smell the frech paint on every piece of machinery or implement, and it is never enough paint to cover the glaring issues. You just never know what kind of deals you will find, though.

Stopped to look at a Farmall H he had and looked at this 9N/2N. It wasn"t a total disaster until I saw the engine. What do you suppose is behind that tin? I tapped on it and it is solid - like there is cement or something filling the inch or two space between it and where the block really is. I would LOVE to see under that. I"m sure it is probably cracked from a frozen block, but I wouldn"t be surprised to see a piston under there...

If the price fits your wallet , buy it. I have a '29 Chev grill surround that someone cared enough or was broke enough to hand rivet the sucker together. Not fot sale, but my grandkids might get something (medallion is perfect).

If it works, ingenious! But buyer beware.

Water jacket repair.

Even though I do not want it, one must respect the guy that did it.

It is not uncommon for the webbing between the cylinders to crack in 50+ year old Continental engines as used in Ferguson tractors. The thread all repair has been around for decades.

MH 44 engines are also prone to such cracks.

That's one fine "farmerization"!
I've seen some that I have had to wonder about, but if it gets the job done...

Should label it 'Folk Art' and put it in a gallery! Just think about the work and craftsmanship that went into it (also desperation). Bet it works fine. I wouldn't mind having it for a show/conversation piece.

Nice!
broke tractor, no money, there's always a way.
I'd paint it up right, and take it to shows just to have some fun.

had a 9N that the entire bottom of the rear housing was broke out
and someone welded in a 'patch'. no issues.
still own a NAA that the rear radius arm mount was ripped out
of the casting, and has been ugly patched. holding up fine.

I remember i had a '63 "R" code 427 Ford years ago and windowed the block on the right side. Found a old 390 block as the '63 wasn't a side oiler and repaired this thing using Allstate 460 rod and ran the crap out of it for the rest of the time i had it with zero problem. Man, i wish i still had it now.

I like that they used plain slotted head screws. It would really look tacky with phillips.

Still Laughing.....

That being said, my Dad was a sheet metal man and I can see him making such a repair. Heck I was 15 before I found out that you could buy spare parts to things. If something broke we had to find a way to make it work or do without.

I agree. Some considerable skill went into that repair. Probably works just fine.
