  • 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.

        by copgib
        Ok I am here to ask all the experts what would be the best engine stand to buy that I could work on a Model A engine with? I am hoping to get one that will hold a Model A engine with the transmission attached. looking forward to your advise. Hugh

        New engine break in procedure recommendations
        by old31
        What do you recommend for a break in procedure on a newly built babbited engine with a 6.0 head, larger intakes and B grind cam.

        Keep it under 40 for the first 500 miles, or just go out and do highway driving?

        How many miles to do the first and second oil changes.

        Engine pans, yes or no?
        by Curly
        I haven’t been running engine pans. I got a set recently thinking I wanted to add them. After dry fitting them I’m wondering if I even want them on.
        Advantages—
        1. Keep engine cleaner.
        2. Engine cooling, although I haven’t heard any conclusive evidence this is factual.
        3. Electrical ground, but this is not an issue for me.

        Do you run them? Why?

        Would like a little guidance on engine overhaul
        by Mickey
        I'm looking to take my coupe's engine up to Schwalm's for an overhaul. They have two base prices for a short block and long block overhaul. After that there are a number of extra add-on items that can more than double the price of the base overhaul. I looking to get a good solid engine that's going to last and can do a little local cruising. No high performance or long distance touring. I'm posting...

        a B engine, or a C engine, that is the question
        by Ed Saniewski
        A friend of a friend is looking to buy a model A roadster , and it comes with a spare motor. The seller states that it is a C motor and worth a few thousand dollars. I have heard of a B motor, but have never heard of a C motor. How do you tell the difference? Thanks

        Dry engine a bad thing?
        by Dennis
        Recently I noticed a squeaking sound when my car was idling. I took the belt off and started it up, no difference. It would go away when I revved it up a little bit. Got to be embarrassing at a stop light and the squeak was louder than the engine idling. I've done a ton of work on the engine recently also and the first thought was I hope the damn thing isn't getting ready to seize up. Everything...

        Is it dangerous to over stress an engine by using a high compression head? Especially on an original factory engine? How much extra horsepower could be obtained if any on an original engine?

        The Distinctive Model A Engine Sound
        by KansasRick
        When I got my 28 Roadster, the engine was locked up and required a rebuild. I was unprepared to intelligently answer many of the questions my rebuilder asked me about what I wanted him to do. He started asking about shaving the fly wheel explaining the benefits, then on to a different, newer clutch that would be easier to push....I opted for most all of the changes he recommended. He was a well established...
