Are you missing fenders? A 1952 8N would have the angle (side) mount distributor amongst other changes, like the Proofmeter. However many N's have had parts swapped in and out over the years. Ford N's used hex head fender bolts up thru the early 8N then switched to carriage bolts. The fenders and axle bosses then changed to accept the square shoulder of the carriage bolt. Scripted fenders would have a square bolt hole. The fenders mount as you describe - and also see diagram from MPC. Really don't seen any other way they can mount do you? best to get the essential manuals, 39-53 MPC and F-04 manual are critical. We have the 1949 MPC, the only 8N manual for free download in our MANUIALS forum. the I&T F-04 Manual is an old version and not much in it. OEM Carriage Bolts listed as p/n 35310-S, a special 5/8-18 x 6.12 carriage bolt. They are fine thread a not made in the industry any more, but Dennis Carpenter repops the originals so you can get them there or Just8Ns.com The p/n is 355310-KIT and has 4 bolts, 4 hex nuts, and 4 lockwashers for $25.
