Hi to all, I'm normally at the Case site, but have a new project, which is a nice original 8N, it needs work but love the tractor. I will try and post when in progress for restoration. My question today is what are the best points for this girl, and who supplies them. Any advice I can use. Thanks in advance.

Side mount distributor so Blue Streak# FD-8081X or Echlin# CS753
Buy them from your local NAPA or other parts store.
You want to verify they have a phenolic rubbing block, not black
or white plastic. The plastic ones will wear very quickly.

I have never seen the plastic rubbing block be a issue on a side mount dist... Never Shocked I have installed hundreds if not thousands never had a issue with the plastic rubbing block across the board...

A front mount is a different animal NO PLASTIC rubbing block...

For the hard core points lubbers..

Google "CC-30 Texaco" those points sets are the real deal you will find them on ebay are another place are two. I would almost bet those sets were made 40/50 years ago in the USA... They have the recommended best rubbing block...

Are the CC-30 Texaco points for the N series Ford tractore?

As far as pictures can go, those look right for a side mount, but not a front mount, but a picture isn't definitive.

Side mount points... It was part of my stash that got lost in a break up of a partnership in 1999.... My X partner in crime passed a year ago and I finely got my hands on some of my stuff he had locked down... What they would not give me that was mine I had to buy it back Sad.... I did not plan to pay for it but got the old story they could not pay there light bill... Kin folk the worst to deal with...

I brought out a old Texaco service station in the early 80's I had hundreds of sets of those point sets about 5 sets survived...

As much as I despise "regulation", it ought to be in the Constitution that one can not do business with relatives! :^)

Hobo, do you think front mounts are harder on points rubbing block because of a more aggressive point cam ramp?

You have better luck than I do. I had the embarrassing experience
of a non-starting side mount the day a guy showed up to buy it.
We re-gapped the points, which had a white plastic rubbing block
and were fairly new, then the tractor started and ran well.
I ended up including a new set of quality points and he bought the tractor.

Side mount or front mount, for the difference in price, I'll buy
quality parts when possible and save the frustration.
