Nice and nicer when someone gets the grey correct. I started a restore on a N 20 years ago as strays showed up it got kicked into a corner I doubt I will ever get back to it. I did spend a few weeks on another got it going let it set for a year then pulled it out and put it to work its been setting for 10 years. The N I fixed up 25 years ago and the best of the bunch I sold to a friend he paid top dollar for it.

Anyone that thinks that one way is the way to fix it all is lost in space you adapt as you go till you find away that works. I am sure you have found that out. Some N owners have flew the coup, as they moved up in size they brought a Ford thousand series and never looked back.
 
Looking at the air cleaner . . . I was wrong.
I thought that the 8N's were exclusively vegetarian
and ingested only green. (?)

Nope! That little tractor in the glass jar is a Turd Ferguson! I thought that was an appropriate tractor to put in there! Haha. Unfortunately, it s not as recognizable as a Deere so you have to explain it to everyone!!

Thank you. I do strive for originality where practical. Wrong colors bother me although I ve been known to paint a Ford 641 the same red and same grey because it s my favorite Ford Tractor color combo! I also wanted that "Add on" cyclone air cleaner to be pained red to distinguish it from the hood. I still do it my way while trying to be practical and tasteful

Maybe you could pick up a little more red paint so that you could paint that starter as original. Beautiful job though!
