The problem with these old tractors is they drop in pricer every year. You can buy a nicely restored 9N, 8N , Jubilee etc for a quarter of what it cost to restore one.

I have 2 times already in my 2000 what it is worth w/o restoration even started. Figure on $1200-1400 for new rear tires right off the bat-labor etc. I had $1350 in my rear tires with labor.-they had to stop at the house remove them, took them back to shop to remove fluid, Gave me back the rims which I had sandlblasted and painted myself and another visit out to the house to put them back on.

That started up so nicely! Great work, love the fresh out of the barn look.
Some guys they just give up living
And start dying little by little, piece by piece,
Some guys come home from work and wash up,
And go racin' in the street.

D- You da man! Great job. Refreshing to see one that is mechanically sound, yet not all painted up. Does this mean I will see you up here next August to partake in the Ohio Valley Antique Machinery Show?

These old tractors are tough and dependable. Good tuneup and fresh ignition parts they run great.

The other day it was 30 degrees. I thought my 2000 will never start after not running it for 4 months . Pulled the choke out, throttle out 1/4 way, turned the key and it fired right up after 2-3 seconds cranking and rand like a champ.
