I am getting ready to install new 0.040 sleeves in my 8N. A mandrel is just about machined up to push the sleeve in per the I&T Ford Manual.
The sleeves I purchased say to use the lubricant recommended by the tractor manufacturer. I cannot find a recommendation in either the Ford or I&T manual. I am going to try and push them at room temperature since I will be using a mandrel.
What if any lubricant should I use ?
Thank You for any help.

When I worked in an automotive machine shop, we used a product called Sunnen Press Lube. Came in an aerosol can. It was made for pressing of of sleeves, pin bushings and such. We always had very good results with this product.
Ask your local machine shop or on the internet under Sunnen products.

If you like to live dangerously like riding a Harley etc, you could always use my idea for shrinking the new sleeves to make them just fall in the bore by using liquid propane to freeze them before installation. Best idea I've ever had to install new sleeves.
You can buy a fitting off Ebay that is used to fill small propane cylinder from a 30# cylinder to do it with. That's what I use.

I had to do the opposite to the sleeves of my 960. I had to glue them in.
