    just to let all know i got the tractor running. the wire from the distributor to the coil was too heavy.

    to heavy? that makes no sense? it may have had a bad connection and when you changed it to a lighter wire it cleane dthe connection and worked.

    you could have a peiec of 1/0 wire connecting them up.. or a solid ingot of copepr conencting them and it would work fine.

    too heavy wasn't the issue.

    too bad of a conenction was...

    ps.. if that other ford was a 46.. it was a 2n.. or at least the egine was from a 2n...

    Soundguy is right. Wire size dont matter on that.

    Anyway...glad you got it running. The 8n's are pretty easy and a good tractor to learn to work on

    How about posting some pics when you get a chance?

    Looks like a nice project.

    Keep an eye on that front axle with that loader. The 8n didnt have a super strong front end, and has lots of things that can wear out.

    Do you know if it has the sherman transmission? (It would have a dog-leg shaped lever on the transmission case just forward of the clutch pedal.)

    simple physics.

    heaver conductive wire is LESS of a voltage drop than thinner wire of same conductor type.

    unless you have magic powers to change those laws.. the reasonable answer was you had a bad conenction and the very ACT of changing out the wire, corrected the bad connection.

    remember. sometimes a cigar is just a cigar....

    not every part ever changed in history was a bad part. that's why diagnostic techniques usually yeild cheaper repair bils in the long run due to not repalcing good parts..

    glad you got er up.
