  Yup, glad to have it back 8) 8)  Maybe winter will hold off for a while so I can use it ;) ;D
  This wasn't the first ring and pinion issue with it.  Years back I tore one up when I was 13 years old.  I was expecting too much of it and didn't know better.  This happened at my parents camp in Da UP.  We didn't have the means there to split it to replace both the ring and pinion.  The ring was missing a couple teeth so we just replaced it.  They're a matched set and should be replaced together.  It worked but was growly ;)  A few years later it came back home to the farm and I was cleaning up some rock piles and fence lines and I did it again.  The mismatched gears didn't help.  We sourced a used ring and pinion set and were told they came from the same tractor and were matched.  When we picked them up and I asked again about them being matched I could tell by the look on the guy's face when he told me they were that they weren't.  The next winter I was loading round bales with it in snow and ice with tire chains on.  Yup, did it again.  That was the last time and it sat ever since.  But during that time we did collect a basket case parts tractor.  The weight of the hoe, tire chains, mismatched gears, aggressive operation ;) ;D.  There's an assortment of loaders on the farm now.  Backhoe work is all it will do.  I assume the gears in the complete rear end we swapped in are matched.  I'm not going to strength test them.

  It's lacking power steering ;) ;D  I looked pretty hard at an aftermarket system that gives true hydrostatic steering powered from the loader pump.  The other repairs and improvements ate up the budget before I could pull the trigger on one.  Maybe in the future.
  We plan on this being on the farm for many more years.  My oldest is talking about building a residence :)  So it serves a purpose ;D :)

  To finance the work to the 8N I liquidated the Bucyrus Dynahoe and the loader that was on my 300 Farmall.  The Dynahoe had issues with the directional tranny that I didn't want to deal with.  The loader on the 300 was no longer necessary.  
 The 300 was purchased new by my Great Great Uncle Russel Collins.  It's a 1955 with 6700 hours.  The engine has never been touched but is weak now.  Cool old tractor.  It's on my short list for attention.  I added the loader and used it a couple years for round bales.
