hlyautey: Have you rebuilt the hydraulics yet? I see the 3 point needs work.
Wesley David: That's why my dad dose not let leave the my tractor
EdzGarage: Yep, same problem I found. The boot has since been replaced. Thanks for the comment!
BuickDoc: I know this is an old post, but I will comment anyway. I had the same problem with a 1985? IH. The problem was the shifter boot had a hole in it that allowed rain to enter the transmission. Everything worked fine until the temperature went below freezing. A new boot and change of fluid fixed it, but it was frustrating until I figured out the cause...
EdzGarage: I can tell you it is definitely a 1953 Golden Jubilee... Check the history of the ford script on the fenders. Hint - it started on the 8N mid 1950.
Tristan102100: i can tell you that is not a 53...or at least the fenders are not. the "ford" on the fenders did not come untill 1960.
EdzGarage: Good idea....
EdzGarage: I think that's how it's getting into mine too.
Bill Scott: water got in mine buy way of the shift boot
EdzGarage: Thanks for watching!
EdzGarage: @cambriacity It's good to hear you got it going!
Naimad Smith: @edzgarage Shes all thawed now and after a good change of lube, seems to be fine. There was about a gallon of water in there, maybe more. Cant seem to figure how it got in. Its kept in the barn, and things are sealed pretty well.
EdzGarage: @cambriacity I hope it defrosts with no issues. Let me know. Thanks for watching!
Subz3r097: @edzgarage Cool thanks a lot!
EdzGarage: @Subz3r097 It's a 4 cylinder gas engine.
Subz3r097: what kind of motor does that thing have in it nice tractor!
EdzGarage: @flipklos Thanks for the tip!
flipklos: Should have put 4 or five quarts of alcohol in it. With that heater on it it would have been water free in about 15 min.
EdzGarage: @joereina2619 The old Ford tractors are well engineered and will last another 50 years I bet. Thanks for the comment!
NathansBackwoods: @janssen70, Yep, in america almost all tractors pre 1960 were gas or (petrol) Unfortunately...But there were a few models from the 30s that were diesel...one of my favorites was the Mccormick Deering wd40 came out in 1936 i believe, 461 cubic inch 7.5 liter inline 4 cylinder diesel hand crank on gas then switch to diesel.
