Welcome aboard the NTC –the best Internet source for vintage Ford Tractors. Are you new to tractors in general or just new to Ford Tractors? You needn’t go anywhere else to find everything you need to know about these old Ford tractors –we have it all right here. Look into our HOW-TO’s and MANUALS forums for a ton of information, and it is all available to download for free. Now, you’d best stop what you are doing with the oil because something ain’t right. Yes, N crankcase holds 5 quarts and oil filter & canister holds 1 quart. Since you are a probie, it is highly recommended that you invest in the essential manuals if you want to be an N owner. Three in particular are very important. They are the original 8N Operator’s Manual; the I&T F-04 Manual; and the 39-53 MPC (Master Parts Catalog). Here is some info from the F-04 Manual on the engine oil filter canister, dipstick, and crankcase fill tube and breather element –all located on the LH side of engine. Are you filling the engine oil thru the tube after breather is removed? The transmission and hydraulic oil filler is located on top of the shifter cover –the large hex nut will loosen it but it is not threaded, only has spring clips. The hydraulic dipstick is located on the RH side inspection cover.
