8N Pertronix 1247XT electronic conversion quick and easy
Finally got around to finishing up my video on the electronic ignition conversion for my 8n. the kit is used was this pertronix 1247XT the install took about 30 minutes to do. the red wire goes to positive along with your hot wire from the battery. black wire goes to negative. the coil came with the kit i also tried a flamethrower coil 3.0 ohm and i feel like that one is better than the one in the kit. i have to test time out one day. no more flooding engines! easier to start in all types of conditions and no messing with points and condensers anymore also my 8n is 12v negative ground. get more productivity out of your tractor with this kit! :D sorry bout the vertical video i didnt have a tripod at the time or a way to hold my phone.

air compressor auxiliary tank / portable air tank build
built a manifold out of 1/2 black iron pipe on a old air 20 gallon air compressor. busted my knuckles in the first few mins. i have it set up with a male and female air chuck. in order to hook it up for use the male end gets connected to the compressor and it adds about 10 extra gallons. the red valve is for emptying the tank. i plan on making a short hose so i can use it to fill tires when i dont have access to electricity. sorry if the vid drags on a bit, i wanted to be thorough so everyone that watches can follow along if they need to. feel free to ask any questions. the electronic ignition video for my 8n is coming soon :D

m35a2 oil pan repair
turn on subtitles, sorry bout the camera work. i ain't used to the one arm bandit method and my tripod isn't the best. i tried putting a screw with a rubber washer like you see on the other side of the pan but the hole was too tiny so i opted for jb-weld, emptied the oil pan. buffed it like hell with a angle grinder, mix and slather the goop on. no more leaks, the oil that's dripping onto the axle is from where i spilled some oil on the engine when i put new oil in the engine. if youre curious about the screw method i used, i used a piece of tire tube, then a piece of thin lead behind it to apply even pressure. the screw is a self tapping roofing screw without the washer it works well for me. not proud of if but it works :D
