General Discussion / New to the 9N world and the forum!
« Last post by TSGB826 on December 11, 2014, 06:04:42 PM »
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!

No, only gray in the true Henry Ford tradition, his firsts of anything were only one color.  "You can have any color Model T, as long as it is Black".

hey my 16 year old (and me) bought a 1941 9n at an auction. he just wanted something to work on (since this one don't run).
when we started doing some research on the 9n, one of the first things we noticed is alot of the pictures labeled as 9n's have the red underside.
however all the specs i've been able to find say that the 9n's were only manufactured and painted gray.
so my question, did any of the 1941 9n tractors come from the factory with red underside?
thanks in advance,

So true.
I ended up purchasing a kit online. Much better alternator and all new ignition except plug wires. Tractor cranks and runs super.

I have a broken lift arm that is really stuck.  Tried drilling, penetrating oil and some heat.  Anyone else?

Hardest part is convincing car parts what you need it for.  They would want a reference car that it is going into.  I usually get a clank look when I tell them it is for a tractor.

And don't forget the gasoline.
Always use stabilizer...try some gas line antifreeze if you think you may have water in the fuel.
Good luck

I am converting the 2N to 12 volts. Already have the electronic ignition and new coil. I understand I need a GM alternator with built in regulator.

Can anyone offer some guidance?
