The Ford 8N is the standard of reliability, built to last for generations. While these tractors do require occasional maintenance, there are no significant design flaws that would make this tractor unreliable. These tractors are easy to work on.
Does my tractor need a thermostat?
I just read that tractors don’t need thermostats. Gas engines don’t need a thermostat either, they just won’t run optimally at cooler engine temperatures, just like a diesel won’t. The engine temp needs to get up around 190*-200* to run most efficiently. If your’s will do that without a thermostat, take it out.
What would cause a tractor to run hot?
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.
How do I know if my tractor thermostat is bad?
Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Thermostat
- Temperature gauge reading very high and engine overheating. The first and potentially most alarming symptom will be the temperature gauge reading high into the red within the first 15 minutes of your vehicle engine running.
- Temperature changing erratically.
- Coolant leaks around the thermostat housing or under the vehicle.

Can a Ford 8n run a tiller?
TILLER: The ‘N’ tractor WILL NOT RUN A TILLER! Unless the tractor is equipped with a rare Howard or Everett auxiliary transmission. The ground speed is simply too fast without it. Another option if you REALLY must use a tiller with an ‘N’ would be a tiller with its own engine.
