I have a water in the oil problem with my 8N. Can anyone recommend a forum? Preferably as good as this one is for Cub's :wink: Thanks

I don't know of an 8N forum but typical signs of a blown head gasket.

The Ford 9N, 2N, and such variants were spinoffs of the Ferguson. The Ferguson forum is quite active with many of the earlier Ford products.

Their forum is not nearly as active as this forum, but there are some good helping documents there.

Not many forums are this active and this knowledgeable. I thought head gasket as well and have changed it already and still have an issue. At this point I have nothing to loose I'll try the ferguson guys and might try some some stop leak. Radiator could be replaced but I'm not going to until I get the leak solved

The 8n we have at work wore a hole in the liner which made it leak water. They have wet liners Hope this is not your problem . any bubbles in the radiator? hopefully it a blown head gasket.

Could be a minute crack in the block between the liners.
