After the application of copious amounts of degreaser and several runs of a hot power washer, it is finally reasonably clean.

My Fathers 2N and the 8/9 series has a big following over here and if you are willing to pay most everything can be replaced. People spend crazy money restoring these things to parade them around at County Fairs and such.
There is a site that has helped me out bunches https://www.yesterdaystractors.com/cgi-bin/boards.cgi Lots of expertise there.

Love them old tractors. I have a few of them. The one I use the most is my 1953 Ford Jubilee.Added a mini-backhoe and a period front end loader.
