Check fuel filter in the shut off bowl. Then check the needle and seat in the fuel sediment bowl on the bottom of the carb.Also check the float when you pull off the sediment bowl.

I have a 1948 8n. It starts and runs great when the weather is warm, but this year it won't start in the cold. However, if I let it sit in the sun for about an hour, it starts okay. I use it just...

The problem is the carburetor is not being choked. This tractor most likely has a manual choke. Do you see a knob which you would pull to choke the carburetor ?

Are you pulling the knob when you crank the engine ? If you are pulling knob and the engine doesn't start, the choke most likley has a broken or disconnected cable.

Turns over not starting changed points

Verify the point gap is set right and that you are getting a good spark. Check to see if you are getting fuel to the carb.

Ford 8N wont start

It sounds like the conversion was more trouble than it was worth. I won't claim to have the solution to your problem having never worked on an 8N, but I was wondering about the capacity of the points and condenser in the distributor. If the condenser is not 12 V also, it might be causing the points to melt which would keep from getting a spark at the plugs. Check the condenser for voltage rating and also check if you are getting a spark at the plugs by unscrewing a plug, reconnecting the high tension lead, and hold the edge of the plug against the block while cranking using thick leather gloves, insulated pliers, rubber, or other non-conductive material to keep from getting shocked.

Ford 8N will not start when hot

This sounds like a bad fuel pump to me. The only way to be sure is to check the fuel pressure when cold, probably around 45 PSI. Then when it get hot it will drop way down to 10 or 15 PSI. Check the pressure if you can, or change the fuel pump.

My tractor cuts out and dies, then with a recharge, it runs.

Not likely, if the battery is any good you should get several hours of run time before it dies. More likely low oil pressure cut off switch, check level or change oil if it's been awile. Or possibly an overheat cuttoff swith, check airlow and coolant if it has a radiator.
