Picked this up last year new and installed it last year but the fit was a little off and it was suppose to fit the NAA. The left side covered half the carburetor intake screen and the cover would not allow the hood to open. Yesterday I modified the fit so it fits better with the industrial sewing machine. Still have to tie everything up but it does allow the hood to open and the air intake is now open to the outside.

Looks cozy. I sure wish Ford, with all their ideas, would have come up with a heater hose you could wrap around the seat to take the edge off on a day like today.

You can buy the back and the top for this heat howser but I already sweat without the back. The top sure would be nice though to stay dry.

That's a real nice setup with the mods you did. Are you planning to plow some snow or maybe spread some salt? Does the tractor have a Sherman aux tranny? If so, that might help with pushing snow.
I could use a setup like that here. Supposed to go to -5 deg (temp) Wed morning. On days like that I have trouble getting the old motor started, and I'm not talking about the tractor! Smile -Will

I do plow snow with the tractor if it would ever snow here in Missouri. I have about a 1/4 mile road out to the main county road that me and my neighbor plow with our NAA's. I am used to snow plowing after living in Wisconsin until my wife was transferred to Missouri in 2008 (hoping to move back north). The NAA does have a high/low Sherman plus rear pie weights (missing a few but I do have over half) also has a engine block heater to keep him warm in those deep cold nights. The tractor actually had an engine block heater when I inherited it but the element was burned out. Got a new block heater from Farm and Fleet. The older I get the more I don't like the deep cold either but I do like the snow so I have compromise.

This is how it fit right out of the box. Notice how it covers the air intake and the hood.

Very nice Kris.
You'll look like the Pope in the Popemobile.
Remember that?
Oh and don't forget to wave. :)

I was at Palmer Fossums once and he had an aluminum pan seat for an N or Hurdred series that was made out of aluminum. I looked it over and noticed an inlet and outlet on it.
You hook it up with a pair of heater hoses to the radiator and viola! A heated seat for winter snow plowing.

Looks like a nice set up. Would that fit on a 601 series and where did you get it? the hyd set up also looks good would to know if you added extra tank for fluid.

The heater cab I got at All States Ag Parts. Tried to post a link but it wouldn't let me. Said it was disallowed, secure site address.

You can do a search for All States Ag Parts and then type (Heater Cab) in the search window.




The hydraulic system is going to operate my front loader and rear blade power angle when I get it completely done. All I need are the cylinders for the rear blade. It does operate off the front crank pulley and has it's own fluid supply.







Sorry for the dirty tractor but it hasn't had a bath since it helped me build the barn last summer. Hauled "many" loads of dirt, augered the post holes and helped lift the rafters in place.

Thanks Chris for the info. Have been trying to decide where to install the valve on my 631 so can angel the front blade. We usually get lots of snow here in SW Colorado have only had about 10inch so far.
