  • Beware of the Very fast reverse speed on the 8Ns.
    It is about as fast as 3rd gear going forward.
    When I upgraded to an 8N from a 2N I found
    it very disappointing. No one ever told me that.

  • Even with a Shereman combination Step-up/step-down aux.transmission, reverse is too fast in step down. I just learned to live with it over 68 years. :>)

  • I have a 1944 Farmall B with Henderson loader that he wants to trade for. Since I picked up a 2N with some 3 point attachments, I haven't used the B near as much, if any, lately. And getting on the B isn't fun.

  • Re: Potential Trade for 8N
  • Based upon very limited available information, I would trade in a heartbeat.

  • I found what that link is, it's the RH leveling box link for a 55-64 Ford tractor. It's item Q in the image below. It's in Dennis Carpenter's catalog.

  • Yes, I don't know if I would keep that on it or not.

    I still hadn't made the trade, the owner of this tractor has been out of town and for a while I thought he had second thoughts, but I got a hold of him yesterday. Now is trying to find the time to do the deal - he lives 3 hours from me and it seems his schedule is busier than mine.

  • I am going to guess that is a repurposed side link.

  • Re: Potential Trade for 8N
  • Agreed, Looks like if you switch ends it would work fine- as long as the handle clears to seat.
