Step-by-Step Carburetor Overhaul
1952 Ford 8N
by Don Stewart

<< Previous Page     Ford 8N Carbs and Kits     Next Page >>

The float bowl plug is out.

And the power circuit sand plug is out without too much trouble.

As you can see in this rebuild, the hand made cardboard gasket stayed with the lower body. For you information, this won't usually be the case. A manufactured gasket, similar to the one that comes in your rebuild kit, will be retained under the float in the upper body because of the way it is cut.

Remove and discard the gasket after checking that the one in the rebuild kit will fit your carburetor.

Once any gasket is out of the way, remover the venturi. It is NOT symmetrical, so remember which way it fit into the lower body. If it is in really good shape, there is only one way that it will fit into the casting, but if it is the least bit beat up, you may have trouble figuring it out. Place a little dot on one end of the venturi with an indelible marker to keep track of which end installs in the lower body.

With the venturi out, remove the Main Nozzle. Use a nutdriver or deep socket to get the nozzle out. Make sure that you don't cock the nutdriver or socket to one side or you will bend the nozzle spout which will keep it from breathing properly when reassembled.
