Awesome Henry - Ford Tractor Conversions


Before overhauling it, consider an Awesome Henry V-8 Ford Conversion Kit. For a fraction of the cost of replacing a stock engine, you can convert it into a head turning machine. However, be forewarned that it's functionality may be overshadowed by the amount of attention it will receive at parades and tractor shows.

Using common tools, you can disassemble and remove the stock 4-banger and bolt-in an Awesome Henry V-8 Ford Conversion Kit in combination with an early Ford flathead in just a few evenings.

No special skills or tools are necessary! It really has been about an 8-hour job for most of our buyers.

Awesome Henry - Flathead V8This 8N with an Awesome Henry V-8 Ford Conversion uses a flathead Ford motor from the early 1950s.

Owner and co-creator of the Awesome Henry V-8 Ford Conversion Kit, Don and Dave Knasel appreciate the patina that only time can deliver to a venerable old piece so they left the originality of the flat head untouched and didn't cover it with a new coat of paint.

All hardware to convert your 9N, 2N or 8N is available directly from Awesome Henry.

Each conversion kit comes with its own serial number and certificate of authenticity.

All parts necessary for the conversion come with the kit. No welding is necessary! And all parts are primed and ready for paint.
