Looks good but I will forewarn you..someone will stroke out and say something about the in-line fuel filter..

Very cool looking. Usually you see them either solid grey or painted as an 8n, but I like the red here and there. Really makes it stand out. Nice job!

Yes the in line fuel filter can be a problem since that one is made for a fuel system with a fuel pump as in 7 PSI or more so those do cause odd problems

Nice looking machine!
I have running boards on my 2N that are hung similarly.
Mine have a hook like that over the foot peg, and another hook like
that over the brake rod.
I was worried about them hanging on the brake rod, but they've been
that way for years now without causing problems, so I left them alone.
The hooks on both ends just have a bolt ran through them with a lock nut
to
keep them from lifting/bouncing up off the pegs. They're not tightened down.
If you have fuel flow trouble the filter might be something to check, but
if it ain't broke don't fix it until it is! Smile
That bumper looks like it may be an original riveted one.
That alone would be a pretty nice score!
Happy tractoring!

P.S. What is that "box" below the radius rod at the front of the running
board? Looks like it may have been part of a mount for an implement?

I thought that might be what it was, but I wasn't sure.
Glad you have it running better.
Don't run it with that air breather unhooked for long.
GB in MT has posted good instructions for adjusting the MS carb.
Maybe those would help you get it running so it's not so rich.
One other thing, it looks like you have copper line for the fuel line.
Vibration can crack copper line and cause fuel to leak on the exhaust manifold.
Regular steel brake line hooks right up and isn't very expensive.
I wish I could sell some of mine for what I got in them, but I think I"m
stuck with them. Durn the bad luck! Laughing
