  • Ford tractor 8N

    I found a '52 8N for sale. It looks pretty good but the owner says there's water in the oil. My question is I have a spare engine for my Tudor that's running pretty good, so could I swap my model A engine for the tractor engine? I read they are the same but will mine have all the same mounting hole locations? Thanks.

    The 8N engine is basically half of a V8.

    Here's a picture of a Model A tractor:

      Not with out a lot of work. They are not even close. How are you going to mount the front end. What are you going to use for a governor.

      I think you should check out the tractor engine might just be a bad head gasket. I rebuilt a few back in my Dads repair garage. If not it might be a crack in the exhaust seat, easy fix. They also have replaceable sleeves.
