Recently I bought a Ford 8N with a Pippin backhoe
and would like to know if any parts exist new or
used. If anyone has been able to fabricate or modify
parts would also be of help. I"d also like advise on
upgrading the ignition to an electronic type.
Thanks, Andy

Andy........we've ALL FLUNKED mind reading, we have NO IDEA what parts of the backhoe you are asking about.

The 8N has 2-types of ignition systems, the weird 4-nipple frontmount with squarecan ignition coil and the more common looking 5-nipple sidemount with traditional roundcan coil. Unless yer 8N has been converted to 12-volts, electronic ignitions do NOT like 6-volts. I can buy alotta points ($20, cheap) fer the cost of an electronic ignition.

You do know ittza 2-bolt, 15-min job to remove the weird 4-nipple frontmount and change the points (0.015") on the kitchen table, don't you??? Just un-snapple yer capple and letter dangle. Installation is a reversal of the removal ...except... finger start the 2-bolts and install the rotor. Now rotate the rotor until the OFF-SET back drive tang fits into the OFF-SET camshaft drive slot. By being OFF-SET, the dizzy never looses time. Now tighten the 2-bolts and re-snapple the capple. Simple, eh?

Whether the points are frontmount (0.015") or sidemount (0.025"), ALWAYS POLISH the INVISIBLE corrosion from between the points after installation. Me? I clamp a clean $1-bill between the points and pull. Iff'n yer really cheap, tear a strip of HEAVY brown paper grocery sack and use that. ..........Dell, yer mindless self-appointed sparkie meister

Andy,

I have a pippin excavator on my HF TO-30. Its is a terrific tool and I LOVE it. There are no parts available that I know of. In brief it was one of the very first tractor-mounted diggers, and was made by Cone Machine tools in White River Junction, Vermont who specialized in turret lathes and other machine tools.

They are not rare but not common; I have seen 4 total in the last few years.

If you are ever tempted to get rid of it, please let me know.

Bill

Depending on what you need I may be able to make repair parts. Here is a replacement cylinder cap I recently made for a broken one on a customer's Wagner loader.
