  • Request for Info; Any info would be helpful on the Governor and carb for a 6 cylinder conversion. It has a flat-head, (valve in block) in a 1952 8n, 'serial number on engine - 56738, Type 7 HNN * 1002 * ,. Would like to find a manual to adjust governor and the carburetor, and/or your advice. Where can I get a service or parts manual on this Ford industrial engine? The governor on this one is messed up. Not sure if this is a Funk conversion. Did all of them have Funk cast in the oil pan? Thanks

  • THERE IS SO MUCH WRONG INFO ON THE 6&V-8 CONVERSONS IN THIS SITE. I LOOKED AT ALL THE PHOTOS AND NOT ONE IS A FUNK V-8. THEY ARE ALL DELBERT/STAUFFER CONVERSONS. OLLIE GLOVER STARTED INSTALING 226ci FORD IND. ENGS. IN 2N FORDS IN 1946,NOT 1943. IT WOSN'T UNTIL FORD REMOVED THE CAST IN PART OF THE BELLHOUSING FROM THEIR ENGS.(THE 6CYL. IN LATE 1946& THE V-8 IN LATE 1948) THAT THE FLYWHEEL-CLUTCH ASS.WAS CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE TRACTOR TRANSMISSON INPUT SHAFT TO HOOK UP . THE FUNK BROS. BUSNESS WAS CASTING & MACHINING.WHEN WW-2 ENDED SO DID THE GOV. CONTRACTORS THAY HAD,SO THAY WERE ALLWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO KEEP THE PLANT BUSY. THAY HEARD ABOUT GLOVER DOING ENG. CONVERSONS SO THAY MADE A DEAL WITH HIM TO CAST THE PARTS FOR HIS CONV. WHAT THE FUNK BROS. DIDN'T KNOW WAS THAT GLOVER HAD A PANT. ON THE CONV. WHEN THE FUNK BROS. STARTED TO SELL THEIR VERSON OF GLOVER'S KIT, GLOVER AND ATTORNEYS GOT TOGETHER TO PARTNER UP. THE V-8S& OHV.6 WERE MUCH LATER & THATS A WHOLE NOTHER STORY.

  • I would like to know where to purchase a water pump for a Ford 8N 6 cyl. 1949 tractor with cast iron pan. Thank You, Don Lurz
    jon wrote on Friday, December 10, 1999 (PST):
  • I have an 8N with the 6 cyl. Funk conversion. They used regular flathead 6's out of big Fords as well as the industrial engines. There are minor differences like the water pump. The early Funks and all Glover coversions used a channel iron frame. They later switches to a cast iron pan. You can tell what year your tractor is by looking at the date on the pump (bottom by the drainplug) assuming it hasnt been replaced. There are also dates cast in the rear axle, and other places on some tractors. The 2Ns have the date on the starter part of the bellhousing. The later 8Ns had proofmeters, and some had different looking rear axles and round brake pedals. The Funk flathead 6s use the donors clutch and pressure-plate (11 in.), and the tractors throwout bearing. The starter is also stock flathead six but uses a Funk adaptor. They later made OHV six cyl. conversions, most of these were Glovers, they are the rarest. As far as value, they really havent seemed to increase in value, a worker about $2500, and a show tractor about $4500.

  • I have just purchased a Ford N series with a 6 cyl. Ford Industrial engine, I don't know if it is an 9, 2 or 8n. It has 9n and 2n casting numbers on the transmission and rear axles. But it has both brakes on the right hand side with the clutch on the left. If you can help me identify the model I would appreciate it. The tractor is in excellent shape, few dents just needs cleaned up and painted.
