Hello,

It was recommended I post here instead of the Ford 8N forum in case there's a difference with my model tractor. I was under the impression the Ford and Ferguson 8Ns were identical but maybe not. My starter has a short and is mounted on the left side of the motor but I can't remove it as it's butted up against the distributor that sits directly in front of it. I've attached a crude drawing of my dilemma in case any of you fine folks has any input. This was a tractor I'd inherited recently and motors are not my strong suit. Photo attached as well...only one I had readily available. Appreciate the help!

you have a FERGUSON TRACTOR.......

Place your post on the FERGUSON section..



FORD....FERGUSON..

Different MOTHERS and Different FATHERS....

Henry F. and Harry F. shared the Three point hitch, Hydraulic Pump...front Axel.... for a short period of time...

I own a FORD 2-N as well as a Ferguson TEA-20.......

Then their is the GRAY FERGUSON built in England ..and the GRAY FERGUSON built in the USA....different Engines.


Bob...

I think the answer is pretty obvious, remove the distributor

There is no such tractor as a Ferguson 8n. You have either a TO20 or TO30 Ferguson tractor. The starter will not come out without removing the distributor first.

I think it's interesting to note that the Fordson Dexta with Standard Engine, moved the starter to the other side.

I was hoping it wasn't that obvious, obviously.

"what we have here is failure to communicate." for future reference:

u own a ferguson tractor. that's not a ford, and it's not a fordson. u are more likely to get the help u need if u post your questions in the forum that corresponds to the brand of tractor u actually have.

click here for the correct forum to ask questions about ferguson tractors.

Not sure why you can't remove the starter. See video at about the 120 mark this guy pulls starter on a TO20 ferguson. Worse case mark the dizzy and pull it.

American built Ferguson TO20 and Britsh-made TE20 had the same Continental Z120 engine. Electrics were different along with some castings.
