SOURCE: my 1949 8N Ford tractor, the starter just spins

My thought is you need a new "bendix" for lack of a better word. The device I speak of spins out and connects with the flywheel. There is the possibility you have electric problems but based on what you say, I think it is mechanical.

Thanks for posting your question at

SOURCE: How do I remove the starter on a Ford 8N tractor?

Funny you should ask. I just got in from doing just that.

1: Disconnect the battery
2: remove the seloniod (I just unbolted and unscrewed it from the starter and left the wires on it so I wasn't trying to guess what went where later when I get back to reassembling it.)
3: you have 2 bolts at the rear of the starter (the part of the starter that faces the front of the tractor.) You unscrew them to take the starter out. BE CAREFUL - if you pull the starter apart it will be a bear to get the brushes back in.

I had the additional problem of the "bendix" (the part that engages the flywheel) jumping over the flywheel so I needed to remove the bolts on the canister to the left of the starter and move it slightly out of place in order to complete the project. You may not have to do that but I mention it as a aid because I don't know why you're changing out starters.

In my case I found that although the starter was spinning the shaft was being chewed up because the engager (bendex - whatever its called) had jumped the flywheel and was resting against the flywheel. Really needed extra space to pull the starter because of that.

Also saw somewhere that that bendix needs to be drawn in in order to reinsert the starter (something about having to spin it in??? I'll be looking for that shortly myself.

SOURCE: do i have to remove oil pan on ford 8n tractor to remove motor

No it should come out with it on. There is nothing to unhook on the oil pan so it will stay inplace when you take the motor out.

Replacing 8N starter motor

IT helps to loosen the oil canister ahead of the starter and then begin inserting the starter with it tipped upwards and then gradally lift it as you insert it.
The hole should be oblonged out to make for easier insertion of the starter shart..
good luck.
