General Discussion / 9N or 2N
« on: October 20, 2010, 03:16:44 PM »
Hi, I am sure this question is'nt a new one ....but after some more research I believe the 9N/2N we have aquired (fitted with Perkins 3 cyl Diesel Conversion) is a late 1943/early 1944 tractor (still haven't tracked down the casting codes yet) this is purely based on research to see what model years had which features. So now that we believe it to be a 1943/44 tractor instead of a 1941 as previously thought ...its not clear to me now if I should be referring to it as a 9N or 2N. From what basic understanding I have 2N's were introduced in 1942 as a cheaper version of the 9N with steel wheels and no starter motor etc ...what isn't clear to me is whether 9N's and 2N's were then built on the same line ...or whether all became 2N (so 9N effectively ceased production) ? I can tell you that the tractor we have has the H section style from axle radius bars (the reason i say this is that I have heard - rightly or wrongly - that only the 9N's had the H section radius bars ?) ...It has rubber tyres (athought these could be a later fitment) not sure if it had a starter motor ex-works as it has the diesel engine fitted. Finally I believe I am right in saying (please feel free to correct me if I am wrong) that because it has 2 fillers on the fuel tank this would make it a 9NAN/2NAN vs a 9N/2N (which I think are the straight gas/petrol model) ?. I would appreciate feedback it would be nice at shows to state that it is a 9NAN or 2NAN with some confidence ( wouldn't be the first time I have seen a 1945 9N (as described by the owner) on a rally field) Thanks Wayne

General Discussion / Re: Hand Brake on Ford Ferguson 9N Tractor

Hi, please see attached photo, unfortunately the tractor is in poor condition at the moment, but the handbrake and linkage can be clearly seen. I could imagine the handbrake lever being a home made item when looking at it, but the casting on the brake shaft looks to be a factory fit casting ? any information on this (was it an option ?) would be appreciated

General Discussion / Hand Brake on Ford Ferguson 9N Tractor

Hi, Does anyone know whether Ford Ferguson 9N tractors were fitted with a Hand Brake ? On a 9N that a friend and I have recently aquired there is what looks to be a hand brake lever mounted on the left hand side of the rear axle casing (in front of the PTO control lever), it looks to be a factory fit but I have not seen one fitted on any photograph's I have seen of other 9N's ? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks Wayne

Hi, myself and a friend have recently aquired a Ford Ferguson 9N (i believe its a 9NAN) was a ww2 import to the UK (part of the lease lend scheme) and has spent its working life in UK. At some point in its working life (approx 1953) it was converted to diesel using a Perkins P3TA diesel engine (an approved conversion from Perkins in the UK). It is my understanding that the Ford Ferguson 9N had the tractor serial no stamped on the engine (LH side) ....having the diesel conversion this presents a problem in dating the tractor...Are there any other methods of dating the tractor (casting codes/design changes etc). We believe it to be 1941 ...but this is a guess ..can anyone help ? Thanks Wayne
