that looks like a Super A dragster.

If you look at the picture of the regular A, you can see the front axle is flipped upside down. I think they rotated the final drives and turned the front axle over.

The finals are rotated 180 degrees but the front axle is replaced by a very differently fabricated one. There are several reasons the front can't be simply flipped over.

My arthritis is getting really bad lately I could use that it would be easier to get on it?? A low rider Farmall A thats way too cool!!!

Are you ready to get old? I hope i pass on before i can't get on my tractor or can't walk at all.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I understand your feelings , bigbill, and sometimes there are things you can do to help out. Rick (billyandmillie) made this for me to aid in getting on and off my cub after getting a hip replaced. it allows me to step on it and bring the other foot up, before stepping on up to the platform.

Guess I'm not the only one been thinking of lowering a tractor :?:

Been talking with my neighbor on doing something different with my 2N :idea: Think I've located a flathead V8 (always wanted to do that conversion) cheap, and we are planning on trying to "Squat" or 'Lower" the 2N just for the fun of it.

Figure if George Willer can make a "Row Crop Cub" why not do a "Low Rider Ford" :?:

Mike,

That will be neat to see when you have pulled it off. You've found the best reason for doing it.

I'll make the trip to Yellow Springs see that! :D :D :D

Here's my '41.

George, the idea is still in my head really. When me and my neighbor get together in my shop or his, we come up with some crazy idea's to try :twisted:

Wasn't too long back that we decided to have some "Tractor Pylon Races" one evening in my pasture :oops: Had the whole neighborhood talking about it for weeks as my 8N was the winner that day. Of course I sort of "Cheated" as the other guys didn't realize my 8N had a Sherman Overdrive in it, and once I slapped it into high range, she really moved.

I've always wanted to do a flathead conversion, been trying to find an engine at a price I'm willing to spend, and I think I've got a line on a guy who has a couple and he might be willing to part with one pretty cheap.

As far as lowering the tractor, I think it will be pretty simple actually. I've got some "Extra" N parts laying around, so I plan to use the rear axles from an 8N. The 8-bolt pattern of the 8N axle is the same as 3/4 ton truck, so by bolting a set of 16" rims to the back axle will lower the rear quite a bit.

For the front, I'm either going to "Flip" the front axle/spindles around or possible figure out a different front rim set-up for that as well. I think a VW rim has the same rough dimensions as the 9N/2N rim, so I might find a way to go that route.

I figure this is going to be just a toy project, so if it doesn't work, who cares. Sort of hope I'd be able to "BEEF" it up enough to get the front end to raise up. My other thoughts would be to take the 3-pt hitch assembly and make it non-operating and make those into a set of "Wheelie Bars" :idea:
