1947 Ford 8N

I just bought 8N. It ran perfectly the first day I used it.

The seller told me that it floods easily. Now I can't get it started.

How do I start a flooded engine? Can I use ether?

I did notice the air filter was god awful dirty. Could this cause the flooding. I am getting a new one today.

It can be done with multiple passes if you don't go too deep on the first one or two passes, depending on how hard the soil is to start with. Both of those videos look like the ground was already soft and loose. A step down transmission shouldn't help, as it also slows down the PTO.
