  • Weights
  • I have came across a set of 3 piece rear wheel weights that was on a ford tractor that say funk aircraft aviation on them. Can anybody give me some input and a value on them.?

    Also have came across some weights that set on top of the axle on a ford . Stamped 8n 700
    Very heavy and big never seen any like it.!! Any info I would appreciate it

  • Here are two photos of Ken's wheel weights. Yes, there is a marking of "8N 700" on it, but that means nothing and was most likely stamped on by whoever made them and it wasn't Ford/Dearborn. I stick to my story that they are from some aftermarket company. Why? First, Ford, nor any other manufacturer for that matter, would use the same part number for two completely different parts. The Ford 9N-700 part number is reserved for the PTO Assembly and no 8N-700 part is listed. The Ford basic part numbers carried on thru their entire process. For example 17xxx prefixed/numbered parts are dedicated for tools. If/when a part was revised, then either a prefix or suffix was added to distinguish it from previous ones. Continuing as an example, the Ford spark plug/cylinder head wrench, used on the early 9N's up until May,1940, or thereabouts was part number 81A-17017. It had a 6-point 11/16" box end and a 13/16" open end. When it was obsolete, the new part was 01A-17017 and basically the same except it now had a 12-point box end. It retains the Ford Basic Part Number yet is distinguished by the new prefix code.

  • That is the horseshoe weights I was referring too. They were mounted on an NAA so that's why I didn't see the numbers. I always assumed they were aftermarket cause I've never found any weights listed for the 9n/2n/8n anywhere.
    I guess if selling them you could list them as rare 8n axle weights but I don't think it would have any effect on the price.

  • Re: Weights
  • Are the axle weights this style or are they horseshoe style that hung down below the axle? Can you photo a photo of them?

  • Re: Weights
  • Are any of these rear wheel weights listed in any Ford Parts or Accessory manuals or are they all aftermarket companies?

  • Re: Weights
  • I've never seen them listed. One of the sets I've owned had farm hand stamped on them. The last two sets were not marked.

  • Re: Weights
  • MPC's list p/n 9N-700-C as the PTO assembly, no 8N prefix shown. Can you post pictures? If not, email me them and I will post. best if good digital pictures in jpg format and not from a phone camera. I know some of us are curious as to what you might have. Like we said, no MPC or Accessory Catalog offers any wheel weights for the 8N and before.

  • Re: Weights
  • Ken sent me pictures and I posted -see above. I'll also add that Ford Basic Part Numbers would carry a new prefix (or suffix) when released as the old part became obsolete. Thus, a 9N or 2N prefix would be changed to an '8N' prefix when the part was released as a new change. For example, the generator, 9N-10000-C became the 2N-1000 model, then the 8N-10000 for the 8N tractor as significant changes were made. I emphasize again, that though his weights are marked 8N-700, there's no question that they are NOT Ford made/marked parts. 700 is the Ford Tractor basic part number for the PTO assembly, and no 8N prefix exist, only a 9N and an NAA.
