What should the compression be on a Ford 8N tractor?
It seems reasonable that the published 8N compression ratio of 6.2:1 therefore should yield a maximum cylinder pressure of about 91 PSI (6.2 X 14.7). However, compression of a gas also raises its temperature, which increases the maximum cylinder pressure.
Is a Ford 8N a good tractor?
The laws of supply and demand really work for you with an 8N tractor! With so many of these machines still in use, the price and availability of parts can’t be beat. You can have a lot of fun with a Ford 8N, too! If you are looking for an inexpensive, rugged, reliable tractor for basic chores, the 8N can’t be beat.
What type of hydraulic oil does a Ford 8N use?
I think the original Ford 8N used a 90 weight mineral oil, but that fluid is difficult to find nowadays and particularly in the large amounts needed by a tractor. The majority of people operating tractors today run with universal trans/hydraulic oil.
What kind of hydraulic fluid does a Ford 8N take?
Caps in original. By the time 1950 rolled around, and the 8N was the only Ford tractor, oil technology had advanced a bit, and Ford specified the use of “Mild EP GEAR OIL conforming to Ford specs M4864A (SAE 80) (below freezing) or B (SAE 90) (above freezing)”.
Which is better Ford 8N or 9n?
They really are basically the same. Only major differences are a couple horsepower, 8n has 4 speed trans and 9n has 3 speed trans. 8n is newer than the 9n and has more hp. Newer 8n have side distributor older 8n’s and 9n’s had front distributor.
What is a 8N Ford tractor worth?
You might find a good “clean” 8N with a fresh paint for $1800 or a fully redone one for 5k.
How fast can a Ford 8N go?
A 1952 Ford 8N tractor dubbed the “8NCREDIBLE,” has taken the title of world’s fastest farm tractor, reaching a speed of 96.3185 miles per hour.
Does a Ford 8N tractor need a thermostat?

What causes a tractor to over heat?
Low Coolant The simplest explanation behind a tractor that’s running hot is low coolant. Allow the engine to cool, then remove the radiator cap to check for fluid. If you need more coolant, be sure to add the same type that’s already in your system or switch out the antifreeze completely.
