can u tell me what is a good price for a set of running boards for my 2N tractor worth? I have found a set for it, and I think it is a good deal on them. The guy wants 10 bucks for the pair of them if I take them off....Sound good to u guys? I am still a noob to these tractors, and what the old parts should cost...But I am learning fast driveing the dirt roads around here and looking for parts sitting behind these old barns...Been lucky this last couple of weeks finding items I need. So far this week I have got a gas tank, 2 doglegs, footpeg, alt. brackets, fuel sediment bole setup, and 2 running boards for less than a 100 bucks..

I just removed a set of Ferguson running boards off my 1939 9N. They are formed for the Ferguson tractors, but fit the 9N/2Ns perfectly because they are basically the same design. Mine has a heat shield underneath the right side to help protect against heat from the muffler. I do not think I am going to put them back on as I want to keep the tractor fairly original and I will search for a Ford head shield that goes around the muffler. I was planning on selling my set for around $75 based on what I have seen off eBay.

I would say you found quite a deal.

I am curious as to what you have spent on gasoline so far?

It didnt cost me any extra in gas. It is evertime I have to go to my dads place, I take a different dirt road to get there. It takes me longer to get there but miliage wise I bet I havent went out of my way maybe ten miles all together. As far as taking them off, it took a whole 15 min. from the time I started on them, till I had them off. Sure I spent extra time driving slow and looking, but I am retired got to do something..lol..

I live in south central oklahoma. My day live out in eastern oklahoma, so that is why I get a chance to run the roads on the way to his house. Only started doing it since I bought this old tractor, and it kind of got into my blood. I need to invest in a trailor, so I can start trying to buy the whole thing instead of just trying to find what I need.. I would have to hide them on the back of the property if I did to keep them out of site of my wife. lol.....

There is a lot to be said for being "in charge"!!

Especially in charge of keeping what is yer business, yer business, while at the same time keeping the Ole Lady happy..

I have 4 X wives, been married 5 times, and been divorced 6 times. Been with my current (not married) Ole Lady fer 15 years.

I don't deal with married.

Well at least not very well.

You need to look fer one of these 225K on the clock, i paid $200 fer it wif a bad engine. Got a replacement from a Jap engine supplier fer 295.00, a set of tires and drove the heck out of it fer close to 4 years. just filled it up, 180 miles out on the interstate, rest around town total 377 miles on 11 gal.(34.27) My best to date 411 all road miles on 10.5 gal (39.14). Worst MPG my son drove it one winter in Greensboro NC on their winter blend and got all in town drive'n 26 to 27 MPG. It will average 31 to 32 knocking around all short trips, it ain't fer sale. If only it could pull a trailer.
