 8n Loader

I found a front end loader for an 8n Ford. Will it fit my 850 Ford?
Thanks!

With a little modification it will.

 8n Loader

Depending on the loader model I'd be leary as to using it for any heavy duty lifting or digging. The 8-n is a bit lighter then the newer tractor and didn't have as much oil capacity unless it is a front pump system.

 8n Loader

With almost all 'antique' tractors the problem is the front axle, these machines were not designed with a FEL in place and so they were not built as ruggedly as you would want with the extra loads created by the FEL.

Making it fit & work is not impossible, with a little re-configuring it will work, but again, the front axle will be an issue.

If you want to keep the 'original' appearance of the tractor you might want to look into a rear loader instead.

Best of luck.
