I'll probably remove the gas tank and the hood all at once anyways to spray it with a new coat of paint anyways. My wife wants to paint it in the original Ford Blue so it'll look a bit different. In theory, I should be able to lift the front end under the front support where the motor bolts into the frame, then I'll be kosher. Time will tell, I just don't feel like removing the entire motor just to replace the ring gear.

Welp, A good place to start looking for information is a forum where its all about these old tractors. My wife and I just bought a 9N (i'll figure out the year here in a few after I lift the serial number) and while she isn't the prettiest girl on the block...She will get the job done!

A couple quick questions...the ring gear on the flywheel has about as many teeth as a resident of Victor, Colorado (inside joke) and while it will turn over, it takes the starter a LOOOOONG time to grab the gear and crank it. I've read quite a bit on how to replace the gear and it seems pretty simple, there HAS to be simple way to do it without removing the ENTIRE motor!

My initial thought was to move the block forward, and separate it at the transmission...Has anyone replaced a ring gear doing it this way or have y'all completely removed the block?

Thanks for adding me in, and glad to find a place where there is a lot of 9N knowledge!
