I have a 1952 8n. Would like to know if the ring gear can be flipped over to make the tractor run backwards in the forward gears. I talked to an old timer and he said that can be done on an international 300 but didn't know if it could be done on a ford 8n.
I know some of you are saying why the hell would I want to do that. I would like to convert my 8n into an all terrain forklift. Again, you are asking why not just buy an all terrain forklift. Well, I would if I could find one in my price range, and not a 1000 miles away, but I can't. I don't want the 3 point hitch forklift mast either, I don't want to have to back up every were I good, I'm too fat to be twisting around like that. Any suggestions besides just give up?
