Mr. Pietsch:

If you would like a wider Internet distribution, I would be happy to
forward your message to another mailing list I'm on, the Antique Tractor
Internet Services (ATIS). It has about 800-1000 members and is VERY active.

Sounds like a nice machine. 8N's are extremely popular (a statement of
fact even though I'm biased; I have a '48 8N). The price sounds like it
might be slightly high, but if it's a real creampuff then it's probably
quite fair.

Aside from obvious mechanical and cosmetic issues, the rear tires are the
big, big wildcard with antique tractors. For $3000 it should have nearly
brand-new rears. I would deduct up to about $600 if they were really bad,
and scale between the two extremes for medium condition.

Best regards,
Steve O.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Fuel tank repair

I used the 3 part POR15 treatment on my panel 18 months ago with not a
bit of problems, still on the same little stock fuel filter ('78 351
W). When I bought the panel, it had a half tank of gas in it since
1972. According to the label, this stuff can fill holes up to I think
eighth of an inch. I didn't have any holes, but rather used the
treatment as preventative maintenance. Did the metal fuel line also.

I got mine from Sacremento Vintage; cost about $50 if I recall.

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Spare tire hardware

What does the mounting hardware for mounting a spare tire on a 52 F1 look
like? Where does it exactly mount? What years are interchangeable? Do any of
the regular suppliers sell reproductions?

My local radiator shop does gas tanks. Perhaps yours does too. Mine removes sender and acid dips and steam cleans tank followed by the epoxy slosh treatment. Then paints the exterior. Going on 10 years on one tank. No more problems. Price $100
