Getting ready to split the rear of my 51 8N. I've got the manual but I'm looking for any do's or don't's or special tricks anyone can share. Is it easier to roll the back away or the front? The manual says front but I have heard others say it was easier to handle the rear. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

This is all a matter of choice. The one and only time I have ever split mine, I borrowed a cherry picker and used it to remove the hood and dog legs by myself and I am 61 yrs old. I also used it to support the rear of the engine as I removed necessary bolts. I blocked up the tranny and chocked the rear tires real good. Since the front axle and the cherry picker both had wheels, I rolled the front away from the rear. Worked great for me. I have heard others telling about rolling the back away from the front. Just be sure ye support everything good and don't let it fall or roll off. Do not use cinder blocks to block it up, they crush easily. I used 2'-2 1/2' blocks of 4"X6" timber blocks.

Make sure you block the front axle to prevent the front from tipping to the side!

I used a bottle jack under the rear and a floor jack under the front and I rolled the front away. A great trick is to get a one wheel trailer tongue jack and bolt it to the rear. You can then move it around and have it really stable. For under $30.00 you can"t beat it.

" Split the rear"? Do you mean at the clutch, or the rear end? If at the rear end , move the rear end. If at the clutch, either will work ok.
Lots Of Luck !!! joe
