8n Ford 1952 late version

    Hello hope everyone is well. I have my believes to be 1952 8n Ford tractor and was wondering if anyone knows a great service and repair manual that shows in-depth repairs and maintenance of these precious workhorses. Thanks if you know of great ones to acquire and prefer book not online version! I'm just looking to continually repair and fix during off-seasons when not using it as much! After all it does have needs regularly and since I've purchased it still needs a few things completed. Thanks again Kimberlyford

          You will enjoy tinkering with your 8N!
          I still have the '51 8N that I bought used, 50 years ago.
          I have two other tractors now, but the 8N, still in excellent condition, sits in my barn: I just can't quite quite bear to part with it.

            I like paper shop manuals but more and more just use my phone to find the specific info I need.

              Yes it is a treat to have however it still needs some more love given to it. I'd add a picture however I've not figured that out to send one in this group yet!

                  Yes this may be of use I'll see what else is posted here first and I'm not sure how to message you personally for information on what all you have in PDF form. I'll check out the website from the other person here also.

                    Are these manuals in the red belly site complete with break down and fix for everything such as hydraulics and more?

                      These manuals are reproductions of the originals provided back when Ford introduced the tractor. They aren’t quite as advanced as modern service manuals but then the 8n is pretty simple.

                      If u spend some time searching on the internet u can probably find them free.

                      In my opinion the best information available is in the forums regarding carburetor cleaning procedures and electrical grounding as well as ignition trouble shooting.
