  • Bought a Ford 8N With A Hupp
  • Picked up a 8N with the Hupp transmission. I believe it's just a hi-lo, it had the flat handle to shift on the right-side of the tractor. Is this a plus or minus for the tractor. First tractor I bought that has the Hupp, had a few with the Sherman Combination.

  • I have 2 tractors with Hupps. Mine are combos. Find the neutral position, swing lever away from trans and see if it shifts upward.

  • IIRC, the flat handle Hupp is overdrive and the round shifter was a combo.

  • Just my opinion, but I think any working auxiliary transmission adds value to an 8N - more gear options are a good thing, especially if you can slow down 1st and reverse at times.
