    Looks and sounds great! 8N's are quite popular around here but only a few in restored condition like that. A lot of guys convert it over to 12v and call it good.

    It seems these things will run forever.

    Nice tractor! How did you identify it as a 47? It's got the proper 8N hubs, but the 8s didn't come out until 48, hence the name. The 9N was introduced in 39, and replaced by the 2N in 42, then replaced by the 8N in 48. The early 8Ns had a front mounted distributor, I think they moved them to the side of the engine in 50 or 51.

    I have a 48 down in TN I want to bring out here.

    He pulled the number off the block and cross referenced. It was advertised as a '47.

    That looks to be in great shape and engine sounds strong.

    One possible 'watch out' with the brush hog, if its like my old 8N, stepping on the clutch does not disconnect the PTO from the drive train. So the inertia from the brush hog blades will still move the tractor forward unless you shift to neutral. Hope that makes sense.

    I liked my 8N, it was easy to work on, plenty of parts available, and it was a work horse.

    I have one too

    I have a 47 8N also. The first 8N's were made in 47, probably late. And have the front distributor which is a pain, but after you do one about four times, it becomes easy. Mine needs a new set of points and a condenser every two years. Otherwise, it is my workhorse.
