8N??

TO30 this was after the Ford Ferguson Spat, it had a ‘Standard Triumph’ engine instead of the Ford. Otherwise same as an 8n. Awesome Tractor. You can still buy basically the same thing... MF2600 series...

Here’s my Irrational Harvester. 1975 IH Cub Cadet Hydrostatic Drive powered by a 283 Chevy. I had way too much time on my hands one winter. Had an old rusty cub cadet setting around in the way and a 283 sitting in the corner and too many beers in the shop fridge.

Yes I did. If you’ll notice I had to install the engine back asswards to get the rotation correct for the hydrastatic drive.
