Question about Ford 8N Tractor
FORD 8N 1952 OR SO
NOT GETTING ANY FIRE TO PLUGS. TRIED TO CHECK THE POINTS BUT THE DISTRIBUTOR IS MOUNTED DOWN FRONT AND IS NOT REALLY ACCESSIBLE. hOW DO YOU CHANGE THE POINTS? REMOVE DISTRIBUTOR? BARRY
I just had to do the same. I removed grill and hood. Disconnect upper radiator hose. Remove radiator mounting bolt under left side (as you're looking at the front) and loosen the right mounting bolt. Radiator swings to the right to allow access to the distributor and coil. Lower radiator hose can stay connected as long as it will fold on itself without damaging. Remove the coil and distributor cap. Check to see that the rotor turns when cranking the engine over, to eliminate that potential firing problem. Then remove the whole distributor to replace points and condensor. It's a lot easier. Be sure to check gapping on all four lobes.
