Ford 8N won t idle down

Won't idle without some choke - 1952 8N Tractor Foru

  1. Discussion Starter · #1 · Mar 19, 2020. My 1952 8N Ford tractor was running rough and backfiring so I replaced the coil and seems to help a lot. Now the tractor won't run unless I have the choke out about 1/4-1/3 of the way. I have adjusted the carburetor screws as suggested but not seeing any improvement
  2. Posted: Mon Apr 20, 2015 5:51 am Post subject: Re: Carby won't idle down. Most vintage Ford tractor engines will not idle down to 400 RPM due to air leakage past worn throttle shafts and/or carburetor castings. If the idle mixture screw is ineffective (or nearly so) in controlling engine idle mixture, air is leaking past the throttle shaft
  3. My 8N runs great but cannot lower idle speed below 800. stumpted!! If all is well, a 9/2/8N engine should idle at 400 RPM or less but most will not do so after 60 or 70 years of wear in the throttle shaft bore. Air leaking between the throttle shaft and the bore usually renders the idle air screw ineffective

  5. 8N idle control. I have been having problems with my 8N idle. First it was surging, run fast then die out by pulling out the choke it would idle/run pretty good. Overhauled the carb (Zenith)now I have a little of the same problem but worse now is the tractor will not Idle down, throttle seems to to little on controling the idle speed
  6. At 800 RPM the IDLE MIXTURE screw on the Ford 8N Tractor is almost useless. You can turn it all the way in or all the way out with very little noticable effect on the engine. The IDLE MIXTURE screw is useless until you get the IDLE SPEED backed down to a slow idle of around 450-500 RPM. My initial bench setting should idle at around 800-RPM
  7. I also agree with someone above that many new point sets right out of the box are pure crap and need to be filed to a shiny surface to get a really good clean spark. The Ford Model A (1928-1931) uses a very similar spark system to the 8N and newly made Ford points I buy for my Model A are poorly made to say the least

I've got a T400 and when I put the throttle back to turtle it wont idle down. I moved the throttle lever on the fuel pump and it goes down just fine. Is the spring not strong enough anymore?

If it will only run with the main jet pulled out you have the float bowl vent passage clogged in the carb. Sounds like you need to do a carb rebuild

the years of owning 8N's and other Ford tractors, I have managed to refresh what little mechanical knowledge I had and add a little more, thanks to If your N won't start, you need to check for spark and fuel. There are ways to check for spark and fuel that work and ways adjusters on up‐side down Re: 8n started sputtering-hesitating in reply to Rich -UT, 11-12-2003 23:17:54. Rich-. Sounds like governor, but here's a quick test: Discannect the governor-to-carb linkage and start her up. Manually work the carb throttle with your hand. If rpms respond quickly to your movements, then either the governor needs rebuilding or your linkage is. I picked up this 1946 Ford 2N last summer after it had sat for 40 years without running. It was in very sad shape. I've got it running and driving now. Af.. The 8N didn't have the greatest pump to begin with and as these pump get well worn, the clearances reduce the oil pressure and make priming hard. My 8N with a rebuilt engine and oil pump can barely hold 5 psi at idle when it is hot

Early model 8n ford tractor starts but only runs maybve 2min then quits running. Will restart but same thing, runs 2min and shuts down! Replaced radiator, hoses, pump but don't think it has anything to do with engine quit running after 2min.! Clicking this will make more experts see the question and we will remind you when it gets answered The Idle was still too fast - 7 or 800 rpm. I could manually press on the Throttle lever on the carburetor and get it to slow down. That told us it was a problem in the linkage somewhere. My assistant and I considered different ways to lengthen the linkage at different locations - including bending, adding washers or any other method. Everything has to be on-spec for proper performance. The idle circuits in a GL1000 are ridiculously small, so slight problems are greatly magnified. To summarize, the solutions for a lazy / slow return to idle (or erratically high idle) are: Eliminate vacuum leaks. Perfect ignition There are many advantages to making this conversion. In particular, you will be replacing the 6-volt generator with a 12-volt alternator. Generators can not recharge a battery at idle speed or at low RPM -- an alternator can. Additionally, you can put a solid 12-volt battery in the Ford 8N that will be capable of starting in cold weather 263 Sexton Road Indiana, PA 15701.

Also watch your fuel level. The intake is about an inch up into the tank. Another thing that will cause a tractor to stall after running for a bit is the gas cap vent not working properly. If it's still on the original 6 volt system could be your cranking slow when hot. We had an 8N that would do the same Several of the Ford books (listed farther down this page) have history and information on the Funk V8 conversions.

Comparing the M to the 8N, I would far rather use the 8N on a daily basis. Hundreds of thousands of other people must have felt that same way. The 8N sold over 540,000 tractors while the Deere sold just over 45,000. Using that Deere seems like a climbing on a jungle jim in comparison to the Ford 12-volt Ford 8n Starts strong then dies in 5-90 seconds, spark eventually weakens til it stops, replaced condenser, carburetor, sediment bowl, and distributer, still doesn't work.

Seems like I saw something about a ford 8n being hard to start on this forum, but not have any luck finding it again. I'm having trouble starting my ford when it's warm sometimes, I might even have to wait till it cools off which can be awhile. It also seems to need the choke occasionally when I'm driving it 42. Mar 27, 2010. #4. Re: ford 8n runs and dies. I go along with the sticking needle valve also. First take off your gas line from the carb and make sure you have constant fuel flow drain it into a container. If you have constant fuel flow reinstall line and remove the plug in the bottom of your float bowl and see if there is constant flow there The Ford 8N tractor was the successor to Ford's 2N tractor and was manufactured between 1947 until 1952. Testing the ignition coil can be accomplished using a combination of two methods. On all vehicles, ignition coils amplify the spark so that it can make the jump at the spark plug gap; Ford 8N tractors are no.

Strangely, the larger tractor is more economical to operate, since it's a diesel, and it has so much power that I seldom need to get much above an idle even when discing.

I use to have an 8n for pulling hay wagons and manure spreaders around. On the 8n you have to have an override on the pto shaft or it will push you over the hill and get you in big trouble.

This series of Ford started in 1939 with the 9N then the 2N in 1942 the 8N started in 1948 and was the same as the 9N and 2N but in 1950 Ford moved the distributor to the side of the engine from the front. Production ran until 1952 and was then replaced by the Jubilee series The sticking is due to the shiny metal rusting a little, the rust glues the metal to the clutch disk fibers. If the tractor has sat for may years in a humid location the bond may be too great to break, then wrenches will be needed I even block the clutch on the JD 650 out of fear of a stuck clutch, :flag_of_truce 1950 Case D, 1949 Ford 8N, 1959 Ford 641 - Just figured Id show my new project.Its a 1959 Ford (641), it has original sheet metal, lights, script fenders, tool box and Power Steering, Next time you see it it will be the correct colors, RED and GREY, and it will be restored to original.I just sold the Ford 8N, with loader .angle blade and forlks It started right up on three cylinders and low idle!

If your throttle control is at idle, and you can still push the idle speed down at the front of the engine, then your linkage is not adjusted correctly. Look up the exact method in the service manual, and give it a try. Then, if high speed is an issue, adjust the bolt that is on top of the governer, and points straight down The Jubilee-NAA 1952 -1954. In late '52 Ford introduced the all new, completely redesigned NAA series tractor for '53 which marked the end of 8N production and started a new chapter in Ford tractor history. 1953 was Ford's 50th anniversary, so the new tractor was called the Golden Jubilee in celebration of that event What is the spark plug gap on a 8N Ford tractor?

If i adjust it to 1100 it will start same way but only giving it lil gas for a min. After it has been running for 5 plus minutes I can adjust idle down to 80

If that brings the idle down, then the throttle valve is sticking near the closed position, and you may need to replace the throttle shafts. A worn camshaft can also cause bad running. This causes different symptoms depending on how badly worn. With mild wear the cam lobe will have slightly reduced height, or a flat spot on top, sometimes. Your Ford Explorer's water pump is one of the most crucial parts of the engine. If it doesn't pump water through the engine, it's going to overheat and do a lot of damage.
