Moving on from yesterdays conversation on the hole in my 8N block.
I have decided to search for another block to replace it. todays question is, My block is a side mount distributor, must I replace it with another side mount distributor? if I do must it be the same year, as I remember the 8n side mount was only made in 1951 and 1952, I am not sure if the blocks were the same in the newer model 1953 and beyond. thanks for any help and or advise that can be offered. Signed,
Jim F.

Jim,

I am pretty new here but I will tell you what I think some of the long tiimers would say as well. You don't have to be in a hurry to find something that will work, and you can make lots of things work with modifications, but if you look for a clean block fro 50 -52 , probably with the rest of the tractor attached, you will find something at a fair price. Then buy it. It's sort of a "hurry up and wait" proposition.
And when you find it I will buy the carb from you for a rebuild.

Is there a name for this disease?

Rick

They started making the side mount blocks in early 1950. I would stay with the side mount engine myself! 53 and newer completely different.

You can replace the complete engine with any 1939-
1952 Ford N series engine. You will like the side mount engine better - slightly more HP and easier to service the points. If you put a front mount engine in it you will need the generator and distributor. You can use your old gov and proof meter.
