I believe that you could get a flat head v8 in the 8n as a option? There is a guy that comes to a local show that has one. He also has one with a 351, 350 chevy and a 318 dodge. They all look like they came from the factory. BobRR

They had the flat head 8's as the "Funk" conversion. They also made some with v6's.

I am pretty sure this is him. He is always at our local show. If I remember right, he seems to specialize in high crop tractors.

Funny how this started out as Farmall V8 and went to the Ford posts. So, back to Farmall! International produced a V8 tractor from 1971-1974. It was a model 1468 and operated on four cylinders at idle. There was 2906 of them produced.

Do an internet search for "Oliver 2255". Factory 3208 Cat power. Very cool tractors. In my opinion, they rank up there with Oliver Super 99's and their MF equivalent.

The Funk Aircraft Co. made a kit which enabled 9N, 2N, & 8N tractors to be repowered with either a Ford flathead V8 or a Ford Industrial 6 (OHV). Funk is no longer in business, however, the two major parts of the kit are still be manufactured. Hood modifications and other small details are up to the owner to fix. Check out < http://www.dtniron.com/ag/iron/retai...fm?dealerid=25 >. This is the company currently making the kit.

OOPS....the internet address must have changed. The company's name is R. L. Stauffer. So do a search for R. L. Stauffer.

They did use the 6 cyl engine along with V8 & V6.

Tanner, next time you are down this way, stop by and you will see one.

Yes Jim, the original Funk conversion was flathead Ford six.
Here's a Buick Straight Eight, took this picture at Fredricksburg TX. last year.

Back in the day, our neighbor had an "M" with a GMC 235 truck engine in it. Called it the Mighty Murph. He was a HOT Rodder from way back, drive way had banked curve from him coming in around the corner! Anyway, used to fill silos, used it to pull in wagons from the field until he got tired of fixing reaches from high speed trips across water ways. Would do about 30 MPH as it had an overdrive. M engine only turned 1200 rpm at the most, the Jimmy would run 3000 easily. Don't know what he did with it. Farming with a Cat Challenger now!
