  • I have an 8n I think it's a 51. It has a funk conversion and Sherman up/down trans. It has two fuel cells. One is gas the other smells of kerosene. I can not find the two fuel cells any where. Any help out there?

  • If it is a Funk conversion, you likely have the Funk optional fuel tank. It was separate tank installed behind the factory 8N fuel tank to increase the fuel capacity. Both would have held gasoline. Could the smell be stale gasoline?

  • Re: funk
  • KCM. I do believe you are 100% right. The front tank is a full size tank. The rear looks like it's a little smaller . Definitely not a Ford tank. If you have any more info on the funk conversions that you could share I would appreciate it. Thank you for your help and time. Kevin.

  • Re: funk
  • I would again encourage you to check out our Manuals library and visit our Archives and search on "Funk". You will find a lot of information in both places.

  • Sounds like a rare 8NAN model. The fuel tank will be hard to find, I think. You can learn more about this model by downloading an owner's manual from our library here.

    Good luck with it.............Ed
