Amazing. My 2N probably tops out at 20 MPH on pavement. The handling is nonexistent for the most part and the brakes...about the same.

Even stock they have more power and speed than brakes Must be one hell of a tall gear ratio to hit 100 mph.

Simon, you should ask him what trick he uses to keep the axle nuts secure at high speeds.

Here's one we built in our shop about 3 years ago with a Sherman overdrive a 100-hp. flathead. If the axles and brakes are properly done there's nothing to worry about. Trouble is, most people cut corners and don't do it right. I had this tractor up to about 55mph and a car tried to pass me. She kept looking at me like "WTF"??? I was grinning from ear to ear. The rear differential is the same one some Ford trucks used, so with the Sherman, there's plenty of gearing with those big back tires.

Hell, mine might not be as pretty, but I drove her home (about 8 miles) Rt 221 & Carter Slocum Rd--I was doing 50 mph or so--Rob was right on the brakes!!! :woot: :clap: toothy Think I'll get some rattle cans & put a $5000.00 price tag on her!! She cost me $600.00. Old 50's JD bush hog was $50.00. Hmmmm, might get some green too! ;)

Not quite the same thing (for better or worse). I am looking for a gas Ford 651 (or 641 or 841) as per JJ posts. Live hydraulics are a must and a live PTO would be nice. No more Jubilee heartbeats for me. However that souped up 8N would make a great barn rat and a parade day project. A video of a wheel falling off at 100mph would be an adventure to watch.

Actually I got the chains off of a FORUM member close by. I forget his screen name but he gave me a hell of a deal--Ruger something or other!!! :) Only other thing was I bought 2 new front tires & 2 rear rims--points & condenser were the same as an old ford truck.

FF, that tractor is more what I'm used to having around. The hotrod was fun, but I still get more enjoyment seeing the old iron doing what it was built to do. Looks good to me!

I hope you find what you want someday, but if you have your heart set on a live pto, make sure the model number has a 6 in the middle, as 860, 861, 660, 661, etc. The 6 is the code for a 5-speed with live pto.

well thank you Jerry for your thoughts. I am not sure about a live PTO as only three people on the east coast know how break the tractor to set up the clutch plate. Perhaps a x41 or x51 will do fine. The Adjust o speed models are even more dicey. The last guy in NY who even knew what it was just died. He was run over by a liberal driving a Boomer.
