Re: 72 year old Ford 8n tractor runs again

If you read he manual they usually have the turn diameter. My cub is like 9’ turn and super m is like 15’. It’s crazy tight. The best part of these tractors is the average joe can work on and rebuild the entire tractor.

If you can keep the bed liner from having rust form behind it it would be the way to go. They ran tests and if you paint an cinder block wall on both sides with the stuff you can set off an explosive and the wall won’t crumble and will stay standing so that people can exit. Can YouTube it.
