I can't answer your question positively for sure, but I do not see anything in the July, 1947 MPC, the first 8N parts catalog, that would suggest there was a special adaptor hub for an 8N. Your theory that they were a unique Amish or Farmerized design is probably more accurate. I have seen many such redneck-engineering feats before. I knew a guy locally who found a way to mount pie weights on his 2N rear wheels. I recall seeing 9Ns and 2Ns with additional attachments on the rear wheels called tip-toes. I can't remember if they were aftermarket items or Ford accessories.
