I have some 52 8N parts, complete tranny, rear housing, pump (complete), radius rods, connecting arms, top plate for three point (complete, and w/ draft control), front axle extension arms and verticals (no spindles or main pivot casting).

 Let me know if you could ever use them or find a home for them.

Nah, just had several over the years, the last one had a repaired trans casting so I found a spare machine, sold off all that I didn't find totally necessary to keep. The steering parts where kept in case my front loader broke a steering casting/ arm. The hydralic parts are,well , self explanatory. The steering box on my 48 was updated to the 52 with the parts, WHAT a difference, and with backlash adjustment, everything else was sold to a friend for his spares pile.

still a bunch of N series tractors working everyday around here, so I might be able to find them somewhere to live.

Great design, still viable 50-60 years after it was designed, can't say that about too many things. I think I had 3-4 over the years, easy to work on (marriaged several to make good ones) and cheap parts. Don't miss the manual steering BUT man did I get some work done with them.  ;D, hills got too steep for my accumulating wisdom ::) and the poor brakes. Good design for farm country, general field duty (pulling wagons, grading, mowing, etc..)
