Hi all,

Im a newbie here and need a bit of help.

My wife got her dad's 1948 8N and I've done a lot of work to it to try to get it running like new H20 pump, wires, plugs, carburetor, etc. I went to fill the radiator to start it, and coolant all drained out of it.

I purchased a new radiator for it but cannot figure out how to remove the hood, and the hydraulic pump shaft off the front of the engine is going through the grill, so not sure where to start. It has the bucket attachment so not a lot of access to the hood.

Can the hood be removed without the grill, and how is the hood unbolted ? I assume it comes up and off the tractor?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Happy New Year all Smile

Need to know what kind of loader it is, My has a Wagner. If it's like mine take the loader off first much easier. As
far as the pump shaft it's splined to the crankshaft pully. Take the mounting bolts for the pump out,then unbolt the
coupling haves.I put a vise grips on the shaft and tap the vice grips with a hammer forword should slide out of the

Pump shaft may not be spined, but have a screwed on coupling with dowels that go into the crankshaft pully. It has left hand threads. Unscrew the shaft from the coupling and remove the shaft going thru the grill.
