F-20 called Cronus

I just wanted to show off my Newest Purchase. I call it Cronus, after the Greek god of Agriculture. This 1935 F-20 is quickly becoming my favorite tractor. I always thought I would never want to own a Crank Start Tractor but this guy starts so easy it ridiculous. Here is a little video on how easy it starts.

This tractor has many, what I think, are fairly unique and rare items on it. Cronus is a Narrow Tread, has a Hand Clutch, a Heisler Overdrive, Spark Arresting Muffler with the Cast Iron Flange on the Hood, Tall Bolster and Mud Scrapers. I purchased another F-20, I call Frankenstein for donor parts. It has a rare Heisler Starter Kit on it. It also had some parts on it from a Moneith Brothers Lighting System, A very strange Oil Pan with Glass windows for checking Fluid Levels, no Petcocks, and a different style Seat Bracket. The only thing left of the Lighting Kit is the Pulley, the Lights and Mounts. I wish I had the Generator and Mounting Brackets but I don't. I just saw a set of these Brackets go on eBay for $265! I am going to use these parts to make Cronus even more unique. I have had a few F-20 "experts" tell me I am very fortunate to have such rare parts.

I know, it almost seems to be a crime to put a Starter on such an easy starting tractor.

That's a very cool tractor indeed. I've got a 1929 Regular and think those old Farmall's are awesome.

found an F-20 near me, needs rings and a valve job, if I had the pennies it would be living here now!
