As a newbie Tony, do you have the Essential Manuals for your 8N? Manuals are vital to your toolshed/shop. Avoid guessing. An early 8N has the front mount distributor and early steering box, and the generator on RH side of engine to name a few facts you need to know. The s/n year is not critical unless it has a 5 digit or less serial number AND you plan to restore to all original.
