Question about Ford Tractor 8n Front Emblem

1 Answer

Is there a simple way to replace a fan belt on a Ford 8N?

This 8N has front drive hydralics, and there seems to be a shaft and a lot of stuff in the way. Am I missing something, or does the whole lower front end hydralic system need to come apart before the new belt can go on?.....Dave...........

There should be a coupler on the driven shaft. take out bolts and gently pry apart. this should allow enough room to work the new belt around the crank pulley

Shermon shifterin ford 8n
The above link is an excellent site for help. Can you see if the shaft is turning when you try to shift the Sherman Hi/Lo transmission.?
The Sherman units are installed inside the housing between the engine and Ford transmission and I believe you would have to "split" the tractor to access actual Sherman unit. It sounds like either the Hi/lo lever is slipping on the shaft or has broken internally....good luck. Try doing a search for ( Sherman transmission Ford 8n tractor help) there are a lot of Old timer experts out there and this was a very popular addition to the 8n's

Cooling system not circulating, replaced engine, replaced thermostat and cooling hoses. Think there is a blockage, but not quite sure. 1998 Ford Taurus stationwagon SE

If you think there is a lot of rust or stuff that looks like rust in the radiator fluid then it is most likely not a thermostat problem. If the car has a lot of miles check if the water pump drive line to the fan feels loose. If so there may be a bad bearing. If it is an electric fan, well a belt still drives the water pump, so you may loosen the belt and test the same way. Make sure the radiator cap holds pressure well or the system will overheat. Also make sure there are no colapsed hoses.

The steering column shaft in my 1954 Ford 8N tractor broke and I need info on howe to fix it.

Not sure, but if it's a 1954 model, it's not an 8N. 8N was only built thru 1952.
But sounds like you will need a new steering shaft.

Ford 4000 starter only works when I hit it with a hammer. What does that indicate?

the bendix unit on the starter shaft is sticking. You need to pull the starter and clean the shaft up and lightly grease it so the gear can move out when you engage the starter. worst case scenario you may have a badly worn shaft and need to replace it with a new starter. hope this helps you...

In 3rd gear the front wheels shake on 8N ford Tractor

The quick easy answer is put your feet on the steering shafts just ahead of your feet when sitting on the tractor when driving at speeds causing the shimmy.This is what most people do.

The longer answer is a new or rebuilt steering box or possibly adjustment.

Some (most) boxes have play that cannot be adjusted tight even with a rebuild.
