What is the serial number? Is it visible?
i need better eyes than mine to read it. Any cracks in the block?
none that i can see

How many freeze plugs?
how many should it have? is it possible to have three???

i am thinking it may not have original engine. this engine has two places where the engine oil dip stick could have gone. one is behind the oil filter the other is to the rear of filter.

Here's a pic I robbed of John Smith's site. It looks like a dipstick location under the oil filter. Is that what yours looks like? The one in John's pic has no freeze plugs on the left side of the engine. It's a very early 9N engine. Later engines had one plug on the left side. I don't know when they started putting more than one plug in the engine.

If it's a replacement engine, that might explain why you can't see a s/n, but that extra dipstick hole makes me think you have an early (original?) engine.

You might want to read through the N-series history on Smith's site and compare what you read there with what you see on your tractor.

Hey Jim,

That's not a dipstick hole below the oil filter. The early ones drained the filter back to the block right there. Later the oil line was routed to the govenor due to a lack of lubrication. Some of the govenors were drilled for a fitting and the oil line added.

Hope that helps
