Try soaking new boot in hot water first to make a bit more pliable when installing it. 8N's after s/n 263844 used a black phenolic screw on shifter knob; remove and slip new boot on otherwise.

Thanks guys! Love this site. I'm a newby so thank you for your patience. I've wanted an 8N for many years and my wife surprised me with one for Father's Day. Yes, I am a blessed man!

Welcome. Many of us highly advise you to get copies of the ESSENTIAL MANUALS for your 'new' 8N. They are as valuable as any wrench in your tool shed/barn. READ religiously. Know what you are involved with, SAFETY FIRST, and don't start buying and installing new parts, and ask questions - my email is open if you need more help. Is your shifter boot dry rotted, split, or missing now? You need to know if you have an early 8N with the front mount distributor or a later one with the angle (side) mount unit. Also, the OEM Ford electrical system is 6V/POS GRN but some have switched out to 12V NEG/GRN. Either way, if your wiring is not correct, it will cause non-starting issues.
