9N,2N,8N, Ford Tractors / Pinion Gear, Chrome sleeve for pinion bearing
« Last post by rfbraunjr on October 23, 2011, 05:21:40 AM »
I'm rebuilding a 9N right now.  I have a problem with determining the part number for the chrome sleeve that goes over the end of the pinion gear/shaft assembly which is inserted into the pinion bearing.  Yesterday's Tractors (a part supplier) would like to sell me the part, but they don't know which one I need.  They have three listed.  In lieu of buying all three, does anyone have any suggestions on how I can select the correct one? :-\

9N,2N,8N, Ford Tractors / Anti-Sway Bar Setup
« Last post by 9NinArk on August 24, 2011, 06:44:24 AM »
Can someone help me understand sway bars for my 9N?  Here is my setup:  My tractor has the bracket under the left fender with the 4 different mounting holes for the sway bar.  Under the right fender is a bracket, but it only has one hole.  In that hole is a pin.  There is also a pin on the left side bracket that lines up with the pin on the right side.  However, both of these pins are not in line with the pivot point of the lower lift arms.  I purchased (2) adjustable anti-sway bars from TSC yesterday and hooked them on my tractor.  I first attached the left side to the tractor then to my bush hog.  I had to lengthen the bar to make it fit.  Next I tried to put the right side on.  After attaching it to the tractor, it was too long to attach to the implement.  I have been told that it is important to have these lined up with the pivot point of the lifting arms.  I did disconnect the lifting arms from the bush hog and stuck a pin throught the eyelet of the lifting arm and the anti-sway bar to "lock" them together.  I am able to manually lifet the three-point and it doesn't seem to bind up.  I am reluctant to try it with the hydraulic system until I find out if this setup is acceptable.  I don't want to tear anything up.  I already tore up my PTO shaft, but that is a topic for a different posting.  Is there anyone out there that can give me some pointers for this?  Thanks!
9N,2N,8N, Ford Tractors / Valve assemblies
« Last post by seldomright on July 18, 2011, 10:05:20 AM »
Hello All,
I am in the process of rebuilding a 2n engine.  The engine has been rebuilt in the past.  In reading documentation it seems important to reassemble the valve assemblies in the same port they were removed from.  However the last person to rebuild this engine did not pay attention to  a couple of things.
1.  The springs (later version) were not consistant.  Some had the close coils on top and some had the close coils on the bottom.

2.  A couple of the valve guides with the rubber seasl intended for the intake valves were used in the exhaust ports. 

What is more important.  Replacing the valve assemblies in the same port they were removed from or putting the correct valve guides in the right ports.  I would disassemble the units and keep the valves in the same ports but put the guides where they belong.  Thanks in advance for any guidance.

I just joined the forum and noticed you message.
I hope I am not too late to be of help.
To change the PTO seal just unbolt the flange around the PTO shaft and it pulls right out.
The seal can be easily changed once the shaft Assy is out and on the bench.
It is really easy to do.
I am restoring a 9N and just did it on my tractor.
Good Luck!

Does anyone know about how to change the seal for the PTO shaft?
Do you need to use a puller of some kind?
Or can you just pry it out?
thanks in advance...
