A very talented and gifted neighbor, who was responsible for many restorations and contributions to the local show and passed away about 6 months ago, converted this Fergueson. Beautiful :!:

Sorry, that's not a Ferggie. It's either a 9-N or 2-N Ford Ferguson. Beautiful conversion. Thanks for the pictures. To be correct they were Ford with Ferguson system hydraulics.

Not really relevent to your post but just got to thinking that by changing the rears by that much if that wouldn't mess up the ground speed to pto ratio? Not relevant I guess just got to thinking outloud.

Derick, the front has also been raised. Note the plates on each side of the front axle beams.

That was some fine farmerneering. Beautiful tractor. I guess that would mess up the PTO to ground speed ratio, but the PTO would still run at 540rpm. Give a nice "road" speed in high!

Dave, I was told by the restorer's son-in-law that a kit was available to do the rear wheels, but the farmerneering was done on the front end.

Simple, functional, needed, and done without a lot of money, farmerneering at it's best. ;) and it looks good.
I remember you saying that a neighbor passed a bit back, was that the same fellow? Have you ever driven it?

Dave, I have not driven this one. I should have noted earlier that the this row of tractors is on a terrace with the rear wheels on the high terrace ridge and the front tires down a bit towards the ditch. That distorts the heighth a bit to me.
Yes, the restorer passed away suddenly just a couple of weeks after my mom last fall. I do not remember if I specifically referred to him in a post, but we have lost many from mom's generation in the community since her passing.

No you didn't refer to him specifically, just mentioned in a post, that you had a neighbor pass suddenly.
I was just courious if it was the same fellow.
