8N fender brackets

Postby tinnerjohn » Sun Apr 04, 2021 8:11 am

A few years ago I think at least one of the parts suppliers offered a set of holders or brackets that bolted to the left fender to hold the drawbar and related items when not in use. I've searched several suppliers websites and come up blank. Also, if memory serves me I bought most of the parts when I rebuilt this tractor many years ago from an outfit called NComplete in I believe Indiana. They were great to work with, but an internet search looks like they may be out of business, Anyone know if this is the case? Happy Easter. John

I haven't seen NComplete around for a while, used to see them at the Portland show. Have you checked with Dennis Carpenter Reproductions? They have one of the most extensive parts selections for the N series tractors. There's another supplier who slips my mind at the moment.

I checked Dennis Carpenter's website, I couldn't find the holders, I may call them tomorrow. I bought some stuff from him years ago at a show in NC, seemed like a great guy. My BIL's Dad sold him a lot of parts from an old Ford dealership that he bought, said the same thing. John

There is a fender rack at the bottom on this page. I don't know if it's what you want

I bought those brackets for my 8N, they look good and work well.

Thanks for the input. I've been thinking about getting one since I rebuilt the tractor, trying to keep track of the swaybars, drawbar etc. when you don't use them often is a pain, plus it looks good! John

The two items from that link I like is the left side brake hand lever, and the position control for the 3 point. Having a 2N, those would be a welcome addition to my tractor.

I like the FarmMech lock. Right now I'm sinking my spare change into a complete tune-up. The goodies are going to be next. This is actually my wifes tractor that her Dad gave her, she says I've ignored it since I got the Cub! (She's probably right, as usual) John
