The Ford 9N Engine Rebuild Chronicle
by Bill Dakin

Part One (Continued): Tearing Down the Engine
  [Previous Page]   [Next Page]

The cylinder head was thoroughly coated with carbon and oil on #2 (1,2,3,4 right to left).

With the cylinder head set back in place, the engine is removed.  I decided to disassemble the engine on blocks rather than an engine stand because I didn't want to rent the stand twice or keep it for weeks while the machine work was being done.  Pull the engine horizontal away from the transmission to keep from binding on the transmission input shaft.

The transmission bell housing, clutch release bearing, and input shaft.  Eventually this transmission will be replaced with one from a 2N that has an auxilary Hupp high/low.

The clutch is removed while still attached to the engine hoist.

Clutch disk and pressure plate removed.  The clutch disk was replaced because of some oil contamination.

The flywheel can be removed now or when the oil pan is removed to gain better access with a rubber mallet.

The ring gear around the flywheel was extremely worn but still turned when the starter was engaged.  It must be replaced when in this condition.

The oil pan is removed.  At once, remove the oil pump and pick up tube assembly to prevent damage if bumped.  Now the flywheel can be tapped off with a mallet or block of wood.  A friend should hold the flywheel while it is be tapped to prevent it from falling.  It weighs between 35 and 45 pounds.  The main bearing caps can be removed now.  The caps must be reinstalled later on in the same position in which they were removed.  They can be held in place by nails on a small piece of 1x4 and labeled front/middle/rear.
