Just wanted to show you all the fuel line that was in my 8N when i bought it. Left side was connected directly to the tank (no sediment bowl) and the right side to the carb. The bend at the very right is kinked...looks like it was bent with pliers. Needless to say, i replaced everything with a safer alternative.

Meh, a true farmer would have had some bailing twine and a license plate worked into it.... lol

When I got my 9N the fuel line was not that ugly but it wasn't nice either.

It's easy, and cheap, to make one up from the proper size steel brake line if you have a flare tool and a tubing cutter.

Do remember that the proper tools, materials, and time are always in short supply when the farmer has hay on the ground/seed to get into the ground/ground to work. The above reasons are why many of these little hack jobs/treasures exist. Granted some of it is lazyness/ignorance but it's amazing some of the little things you find.

Like in the case I'm dealing with now where the inside of the axle retainer is all goobered up from a spinning race. Peening the inside of the retainer wasn't enough to hold the race so they wrapped the race in some type of really hard foil tape. It lasted 30+ years like that but now that I have seen the mess my granddad/hired help made of it it's no wonder the damned thing always leaked.

I'm getting ready to put all of the various attachments that I removed from the 1952 8N with an ugly but working Cessna front loader. One of my oops was to lift up the hood without unhooking the fuel line. I'm deeply grateful for the products and service of YT, including a new fuel line and the brass elbow at the carb. The tractor was a gift, but a pretty expensive one, but I've learned a lot over the past 8 months,among other things, cleaning, draining, replacing gaskets, hoses, hydraulic lines, new driver in the starter, painting, wiring harness, and another oops when I messed up the key switch muscling the hood off the dashboard.

I can't blame anyone but myself for any missteps along the way.
