I bought a 8n with a front mount distributor and found after several months it had a electronic ignition to my surprise, it worked fine till the day I sold it (12v). I bought a electronic ignition for my a 8n with a side mount distributor also 12 v worked for about 20 minutes, tractor died. Checked it out no spark ,replaced it again ran for about 20 minutes or so died again, Derick from just 8ns he gave me the name of the supplier in Ok,he said it must be surge in one of the electrical components, went back to points runs great again. I have a 8n and two 2nís that are 12v and a 8n , jubilee, and a 641 that are 6v. 12 volts are good in a lot of ways but if you want nostalgic stay 6v. By the way here in illinois it was 29 degrees and my 641 fired right up. Do whatís best suits your need.
