You should be able to get one at faxonautoliterature.com. They carry original dealer service manuals and list several for your tractor. I think that the Ford one has it but not the Service Manual half way down the page. A quick e=mail or phone call would confirm it. I have used them before and had excellent service. Hope this helps.

Cant get 8n to run. starts but misses. new plugs, crb,distributor, coil, tank shut-off, ign switch, ceramic resister, ballast resister, fresh gas, but has power to ign switch whether on or off.


If it starts but misses meaning it runs but not on all cylinders?.....then,
Are the spark plug wires in the correct firing order?
Are the spark plug wires in good shape?
Is there compression on all cylinders?
If a valve is bad it won't fire smoothly.
If you pull the plugs are any black with carbon?
(a black carbon coated plug will not fire,especially with a 6 volt system)
Is the distributor car attached fully and correctly?
When the distributor cap is off,is there any side play in the distributor shaft?
Is the point gap correct on the points?
Start the tractor cold and feel the spark plugs,the one or two that are colder than the others are the missing cylinders,if two are cold you could try switching those spark plug wires with each other,in case they are mixed up,and if two are missing are side by side you could have a head gasket leak between cylinder problem.
TIP 1, the BEST THING to do on a Ford 8N is to convert it to 12 volts neg ground.Add a alternator,(76 chev pickup alt fits good) leave the starter as it is (it does care if it's positive or neg ground or 12v) and add a 72 dodge ignition resistor in line to a 12 volt coil.(unless your new 12v coil does not need a resistor)
This set up will increase your fuel economy,add power and start instantly in any temp.
TIP 2,you can use unleaded fuel in a Ford 8n as it already has hardened valve seats.
BUT 10% Ethanol fuel is BAD,it can be used, but shut off the fuel at the tank and let the tractor carb run dry before shutting it off if you are not going to use the tractor with in a few days.

IS THE 1951 Packard POS GROUND OR NEG AND IS T A 6 VOLT SYSTEM?


51`s were positive ground and 6 volts. count the battery caps. if there is 3 caps its 6volts, if there is 6 caps its 12 volts. sometimes if its not original someone may have converted it 12 volts.

How do i change a 6 volt system to a 12 volt system on a 1948 dodge pickup


Voltage conversion necessitates the replacement of all 6 volt light bulbs and motors with 12 volt light bulbs and motors (including the starter), plus the addition of a ballast resistor to the ignition primary so that the ignition primary can continue to operate on 6 volts. You will need to refit a 12 volt starter solenoid, alternator, and regulator to the vehicle as well. Needless to point out that you will also need to replace the radio. You can use the original wiring if it is in good condition, and all switches should operate adequately as long as their insulators are still intact. The 12 volt system uses less current than the 6 volt system, so there should be no problem with wire gauge.
IMPORTANT: If the original system is POSITIVE GROUND instead of NEGATIVE GROUND, you will need to verify the polarity of all motors you replace, plus reverse the polarity of the ignition coil primary.

How to check faulty 6 volt coil


pull the coil wire from the dist cap attach a spark plug to the coil wire make sure the plug is grounded. attach a jumper wire from the - side of the coil turn key on. touch the jumper to any good ground. then remove the jumper from ground every time you do this the coil should emit a spark from the plug if no spark the coil is bad if the plug sparks the coil is good

Just finished 12 volt conversion on 49 V8 flathead. Starter engages but engine won't start. Appears to be getting fuel.


You might not have spark as the 12 volts needs a ballast resistor or the points burn out preytty quick. 8 volts at the coil in run with the points open and 0 with the points clsed and battery voltage at the coil when cranking. coil wire near the intake manifold while cranking should jump at least 2 inches. Closed points should be 0 volts at the neg on the coil. pos and neg should be the same 12 volts with the points open. if not either the coil or the points are bad. The condenser can fail and no spark with all the rest right
