When old Mr.Ford decided to include a reserve on the gas tank he made my life a little better. As for his choice of hyd. pumps, eh......not so much.

You best thank him for a really great tractor it was a real buy in its day and still is. My Dad told me that when they first came out everybody laughed at them,then before long everybody had one! The hdy lift was giant step in farming no ropes to trip a plow, no tires on other implyments to go from A to B. Now when you say the hyds are not up to your liking and you mean no live power? Well they make a kit to convert to live power.When the Ns were made live power was not a issue the N was mainly a plow tractor. I may be wrong but its been said that the N series was the largest production of any other Tractor. I have a 41 John Deere A I have no idea how a man could do anything with it as hard as the steering is on it, it takes 3 men and a boy to make a turn.

My family's 37 BN long frame is a lot more enjoyable to operate and use than my present 49 8N. The controls are easier to use and more comfortable. I don't have to straddle it like I do with my N. It turns very easy especially with a spinner knob. And it will definitely out pull my N. I would have to corrugate 9 acres of pasture and hay with the BN and a valley mound 3 row horse corrugator every spring. It would practically drive itself. But I can't complain with the N as it was given to me free, and started with the help of the 50 (then) tips.
