Default Ford Tractor with V8 Conversion Value

I have a chance to buy a little ford tractor that has a Ford flathead V8 engine. I don't know much about these - can someone help with a value ??? The tractor I'm looking at is in very good condition - new tires - looks really nice and runs excellent -- thank you

Can't help with value but just remember if you are going to work it you have anywhere between 65 and 85 HP depending on engine in front of a 23 HP rear end.

Mark: is it an original Funk conversion kit or home built?

78loadstar: Good point but I've never heard of driveline failing with these conversions. There's a guy in Brazil I think who has an 8N with a 6v53 Detroit in it that would get me nervous!

That would make me nervous also. I would like to see it in action though.

Correct me if I,m wrong but it seem to me that Ford used truck components in the 9and 8 n rear end. Bill H.

They had conversion kits for installing either the flathead V8 or the 6 cyl ford engine inn those tractors. I think you can still get them.

I've seen a V8 8N hooked up to a pulling sled. The drive line is not in danger, but the tires were. . . the thing threw rooster tails all the way down the track!

I think that lack of traction is the saving grace factor, tie it down so it has traction and I think you will see parts scattered all over the place!
