Excellent! Beautiful job on it..

My cousin just up the road from you has his father in laws BN, he said it never had brakes so the girls would use a building or a tree to stop it. :lol: If I recall he has the same lift setup.

Kevin
Yes that is the one you drove at SCRAP with the tranny noise.
After investigation the slide rail bolt worked loose and was grinding on the gear. put a new bolt in tightened the others and bent the keeper steel over.
quite tranny now
Thanks maybe we will see you at SCRAP.

Phil,

With the quality of your work, it should not be a surprise at all. Well done.

Great job Phil. Guys I have had the pleasure of seeing this tractor up close and it is truly a masterpiece. Phil and his boys did an excellent job redoing it.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Congratulations, Phil and very nice job.
I remember not taking a tractor to Cubarama one year and received a trophy. Should have been John Puckett's :!:

My dad had a B-N . I remember him Plowing , cultivating, and dragging the field with it. I remember as a kid ,when he cranked it over
and it woke me up, I knew it was going to be a day of work. Mostly in the spring we would have to go and pick rocks out of the just plowed field. The frost
Pushes the rocks up each year. (Michigan) After plowing he would hook up the trailer to it and we would throw rocks ( BIG ROCKS) on the trailer. Then we would take them out and throw them on the rock pile. What a job that was .

By the way, that is the most beautiful BN I have seen .

A well deserved congratulations on a nice tractor. The exhause lifts did kind of sort of worked. I used one on an A. The fact that they wern't the best is possibly why not too many survived. It's nice to see everything on the tractor. Again, good work. Vern
