Get The Manuals !
It is very easy to find reprints and even original manuals on ebay, Amazon, and on most tractor sites. The Owner's manuals and Service Manuals are very reasonably priced considering the amount of essential information they contain. Parts Books and Service Bulletins are also very nice to have. These are links to the manuals on CD that I use. My clean copies of original manuals are wrapped up and stored.
Here's another link to some digital manuals, if your tractor is a 1000 series or newer.POKE HERE.
This one is just getting started, so check back and see what he has added.
This should be your starting point for information on old Ford tractors. Search the archives and general information areas. If your answer is not there, or you can't find it, you will find a great group of tractor people in the discussion boards ready to help you.

This link was suggested by a bright young man named John. He thought many of the visitors to this site might benefit from some Basic Information on Hydraulic Systems. I agree, and was happy to provide the link.
Site offering parts to provide live hydraulics for N-Series tractors, including custom remote hookups, valves, etc. Plus Custom Machining, Tools, and Fabrication - Dan Allen (a.k.a. TheOldHokie). Dan Allen (The Old hokie) lost a big part of his web site when Verizon did away with their web hosting. I don't think the content Dan had on Verizon has ever been completely restored. His Windy Ridge Farm site, and contact information are still on the Web at http://windyridgefarm.us/WindyRidgeFarm.html
If you are using a front end loader or even a front blade on your 8N tractor, Jackson Power Steering has a complete bolt-on power steering unit for your 8N. Is that cool or what?

Laurel Auto is the engine shop that did machine work for two sleeves on my Ford Flathead V8. Talk to Greg, either one. It's a blessing to find good people, who know what they are doing.
I have several of these multitools (you can't have too many). I carry one with me nearly every day. These are much more practical than the pocket knife I started carrying in 5th grade. That was waaay back in the olden days, when a kid with a pocket knife was considered normal.
