I just picked up a 2 owner 1935 EN.It is pretty complete and has a 3 foot snowplow.At the right rear of the engine is what appears to be a small mechanical fuel pump.I have never seen this before. My 1937 E 38 doesn't  have one.Is this some type of option ? The EN parts manual that came with this tractor,has a listing for an AC fuel pump.It also says no parts for this pump can be purchased from Cletrac,you must go directly to AC for pump or repair parts.I thought all these tractors were gravity feed.Has anybody seen,or about this set up ? Puzzled Bill in CT>

Have not wired it yet. Found a local shop that will test generator, starter, and regulator for $20.00 and clean and repair as needed.

Generator is not in the stock location; it looks like a kit was installed to move the generator up near the water pump. Will take photos of this and post them along the way. Regulator has FoMoCo (Ford) markings and is rated at 36 amps.

Some where along the way a solenoid was added, mounted to the Ware loader frame, and I plan to revert back to the stock starter system which means I will be buying a starter switch and the box it is mounted in. Battery cables are in bad shape and will also be replaced. Plenty of work to do!

How far did you move that marching on your trailer? It looks like it was a bit over loaded? No?

Not as much as you would think. The trailer is made out of a 50's camping trailer and features a 5,000 pound capacity axle and load range D tires (4,300 pound rating.) I figure I was right on the edge with the tires (3,800 pounds for the tractor and another 600 pounds for the loader frame?) but with the bucket and blade and their frames in the back of the F-150 the weight was not entirely on the trailer.

Moved it from Omaha, Nebraska to near Grand Junction, Colorado, about 780 miles. I-80 and I-70 most of the way, I-76 connects the two. Weather was cool and I stayed around 65mph.

I am starting to look for a 7,000 pound capacity dual-axle trailer which would be better suited and could also handle my '48 8N tractor. Already have a brake controller in the F-150 as I pull an RV trailer so just looking for a suitable trailer. Won't have to worry about it until the OC-3 is running which may take a while. Have sent the magneto off to Mainely Magnetos; they received it late last week. Will probably be several weeks until I get it back.

Just looked at your website photos. How far did you move that marching on your trailer? It looks like it was a bit over loaded? No?

Hi. new member here with questions.
I recently bought an HG with serial number 20GA530. That would make it an 1946?
Looks in good original condition. But the strange thing is that I canīt see any traces of battery, starter, lights or generator.

So the question is:
Was this an additional equipment in 1946?

The gross torque for the IXK is 86 ft/lbs, net about 72ft/lbs. The later IXB was about 10% more.  This is at 1800 rpm.

Pretty confident the IKX3 in my 48 is starting to give up the ghost. To me it sounds like a possible failing rod bearing. Engine only really dose it above idle. To me it sounds like belt squeal but itís coming from the block.

Anyways Iím curious in presuing alternate engines. Trying to find a small 3 cylinder Diesel in my area is useless.

Iím curious on the torque output of the factory engines. I can only find HP numbers.

The reason Iím asking is because Iím sure I can find a 1.8L or 1.5L VW Rabbit Engine for cheap. Between my lathe and my mill at work I donít see an issue in making it work. As long as the numbers are similar.
