In Reply to: Replacing engine on 8N posted by Del Huebner on July 23, 2020 at 19:18:24:
I swapped the strong running engine from my trusty 2N into a smoky 8N that I bought thinking I would upgrade tractors.
Both were front mounts with 6V/original wiring. It was a Very simple swap. I reused the wiring that was original to each tractor. Only surprise was the external oil lines were different. Don't remember just why now but I had to swap those too. That was 18 years ago.
I started about 8 am and had both tractors running again by about 4 pm. That was the first time I had ever driven an 8N and I was horrified to learn how fast the reverse speed was on it.
I almost swapped them back.
