Dowden Foot Feed for the 8N

    The N series Ford tractors were some of the most reliable tractors ever built. The 2N, 9N, and 8N, were built from 1939-1952. The most popular of these was the 8N, with over 500,000 of these built from 1947-1952. They are a reliable tractor with many still in service today. This is evident in the fact that many reproduction parts for them can still be bought at some farm stores.

    However, there were many accessories for these tractors that were built by smaller companies, that are often not available. Such is the case with the foot accelerator for the 8N. It was built by the Dowden Manufacturing Company of Prairie City, Iowa and called the "Dowden Foot Feed". They are very rare and expensive, if you can even find one.

    We manufacture a replica of the "Dowden Foot Feed" and sell it as a kit with everything included. It even includes replica cast parts, which are made from patterns of a set of original cast parts!

    You will be surprised how useful it is, because it enables you to use your right hand for shifting and running the hydraulic control. It is especially handy when using a loader, rear blade, or dirt bucket. We sell the entire kit for $175.00.
