The first Operator's Manual for the 8N Tractor was released on July 7, 1947. This coincided with the production of the 8N which also began in July, 1947. Note that the Model 8N is designated such as that the 8 signifies year of model release. Since 1947 already had the late 2N models, 1948 would introduce to the world the 'new, improved' Ford Tractor, with almost 50 engineering changes and thus, a completely new model. There would be three Operator Manuals for the first year, 1948. As 8N production ramped up over the coarse of the next five years, manual revisions would reflect the EC levels also. Interesting to note is that all the 8N operator manuals include a section on plowing with the Dearborn Plow in the last chapter. Always remember to be safe and read the manual first, especially if you are unfamiliar with the machinery. Enjoy and be safe.
