  • Ford 8N backfires through carburator
  • My 1948 Ford 8N with front mounted 12 volt electronic ignition was running fine and suddenly stopped. It will not start again and backfires through the carburator. Any advise?

  • Check to see if you have compression. I had a similar problem turned out to be valves sticking. If you donít have a compression tester take plug out, hold finger over hole, bump starter and see if if you can feel suction or pressure pushing finger off of sparkplug hole.
    Probably not your problem but easy enough to eliminate.
