9N Starting Issue
« on: May 08, 2011, 04:08:15 PM »
I recently purchased a 1941 9N that has been converted to a 12 volt system. I am not gettng any fire at all. My question is, when one is converted is the coil changed out to a 12 volt? Also is there anyway to ckeck the coil? I have burned three resistors up already. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Have you taken the distributer and coil apart to see if parts fall out and the sort? When you take it apart, replace just about all the parts <$100. Points, rotor bug, condenser, and coil should get the ball rolling. The 6v coil should work fine with the resistors installed. I don't know exactly what was wrong with mine but I replaced it with electronic ignition only to find carb was the bigger issue.

Hi -
I'm new to the forum, but excited to find you.  Can you recommend the best place for parts?  I'd like to buy a new coil for my 9N.

Hi Taterz
Thanks so much, I checked out his website.  Now I have to figure out if I need a 6 volt or 12 volt coil.  I'm to look for a resistor, I guess.  Unfortunately, I am 250 miles away from my little tractor, so I can't go out and look at it.  Was wanting to order a part so it could meet me at the tractor, next week.

Any comments, from anyone, on the 6 volt/12 volt issue would be appreciated.  My tractor has been converted to 12 volts, has the GM alternator, but don't know about the coil....My husband says he thought he saw a resistor.

I had a 6 volt coil that went bad. A friend of the family said to replace it with a 12 volt coil and put another resestor on it. I did just that. The only issue i have now is with the carb. Still trying to get it straightened out.
