Cleaning out the dairy pens with a 1948 8N was my first job when I was 8 yrs old.
In 2003 my wife found a basket case 8N for sale and bought it for me. I took 4 months to restore it in time to have our 10-yr-old grandson, Luke, drive it in the local parade. He won a blue ribbon. I still had my childhood tractor key for the 8N and over 50 years later it worked in the restored tractor.
Then… I began searching for running gear so we could build a parade wagon for our grandkids. Just 5 miles from our home I found one sitting in the weeds on a farm where the old wagon had been used to haul irrigation pipe. After pumping up the tires (yes they took air) We hauled it home and with a cutting torch stripped it down so a new frame could be made to receive wooden rails and benches. We built a nice step on the back and seats to haul 15 people. We even wired a 12 volt system so we could have LED lights on the wagon. Maiden voyage with the tractor and wagon was for one of our granddaughters 9th birthday with her friends. Then Christmas caroling. By-the-way the 8N serial number is: 24342 (A Palindrome- reads the same backwards). Now we are finished another ’48 8N which will be a twin. Our grandkids (as well as myself) are all learning to drive these great tractors of history. Thank you Henry Ford and Harry. And thank Steiner and others like them who keep this wonderful enjoyment going.!

Ford Ferguson Lift Cover Repair ~ Rachel Gingell goes thru the steps to repair a lift cover on a Ford 8N, the steps will also work on a Ford 9N, Ford 2N, Massey Ferguson TO20 or Massey Ferguson TO30.

We are excited to introduce you to Rachel Gingell, she will be sharing her knowledge thru fun and educational videos on tractor repair and maintenance.
As a preschooler, Rachel carried her child-sized rocking chair out to her dad’s barn and planted it firmly next to the workbench. “I want to learn about tractors,” she insisted, and a father-daughter partnership was born. By age 10 Rachel was competing in tractor pulls, and at age 15 she started auctioning farm equipment professionally. Years later, Rachel’s childhood interest in farm equipment is still going strong. She’s become an integral part of the family business and an innovator in her own right, with her work featured in the Red Power and Green magazines. Rachel specializes in developing technological tools to expand the tractor enthusiast community. She is a pioneer in online-only auction sales and created Tractor Guide, an iPhone app that allows people to determine the year any tractor was built. An alumnus of Cedarville University and Missouri Auction School, Rachel is an active member of Maranatha Baptist Church of Clarkston, MI. Besides tractors, Rachel also enjoys motorcycles, baking and sewing.
In this “From the Barn” installment Rachel will show you how to repair and clean our Marvel Schebler carburetor, one of the most common and asked about repair for a wide range of tractors. Also review extra tips that will help you through your own repair with ease. Watch this video at www.SteinerTractor.com/Marvel-Schebler-Carb-Repair
This is Donna, named in memory of my mother, which I have used for many years. I decided to give her an update…see for yourself. It is a 1954 Jubilee with loader bucket and a Sherman transmission. A good tractor.
This Ford Jubilee was restored by my husband, Ed Haney, along with his brother, Joe Haney, and grandfather, Dan Gregoire. Tractors are in their blood. They all farm and work on tractors. Ed does tractor pulls and is involved in Pioneer Power. They are part of a generation that is trying to keep that passion alive! They are a John Deere loving family, but for this beautiful tractor they made an exception. The tractor is owned by Roger Barber. I’m a photographer and often take photos of projects of theirs and other farm things. Ed wanted to get the photos done of the Ford at sunset. They turned out pretty well!!
