  • Ford 8n timing jeg
  • This message is for The Old Hokie was reading about setting the timing
    For the 1948 Ford 8n when I ran across myfordtractor.com telling how to do it and your tool was talked about on timing there! Was wondering if you had any for sale and if so the cost for the tool?

  • No need to look elsewhere for tech info. We have some excellent technical articles in our HOW-TO's forum -SEE LINK below, and how to set the front mount timing is one of them. Also, the I&T F-04 manual as well as the 9N/2N and 8N Operator's Manuals all have chapters on how to set the front mount distributor timing the old fashioned way without a jig. Every N-Owner needs at least 2 or 3 of these manuals in his shop/barn. The I&T F-04 manual and the '39-'53 MPC are essential to have for any N-Owner as they cover the 9N, 2N, and 8N models. Need some? Go To Just8ns.com to order new reprints or visit our MANUALS forum for free downloads.

  • Hello Dee, where are you from? We have same last name so I’m curious. I tried sending an e-mail but wouldn’t go to your diesel mechanic etc address.

    Thanks

  • Years ago I bought one of TOH jigs for timing. It makes it super simple to time the distributor flawlessly every time.

  • They are quite popular and I have received numerous inquiries. I get the locking bars laser cut and to be cost effective even as part of a larger order I have to order a hundred or more pieces. I'll do that on the next order and I should be supplied for at least a year ;-)

  • Re: Ford 8n timing jeg
  • I bought one from TOH a few years ago. Like the tractors, the timing jig is made to last forever. Makes me wonder if a throwaway plastic version would be what the average consumer would find acceptable these days. Just kidding, please don't :)
