Yep, but a V8 conversion is different and practical. I don't understand why he wants his 8N hood to flip up. There's nothing to access by doing that. If it could, the gas tank is attached so it would stay with hood and likely spill fuel all over for one. I can see why with the OHV engines they flipped up or out, but not the flathead. OK, it is his tractor and he can do anything he wants to it, but that just isn't practical let alone cost effective. Unless one has very deep pockets and too much time on their hands, I can think of 1000 reasons to spend the $$$ on my tractor. To each his own I guess.
