Re: Can a loader operate on a 2N?

Most loaders on an N use a front mounted stinger pump.

Pump is driven by a shaft that goes through the crank hole in the grill

and runs directly off the engine crankshaft. Thus, live power.

I totally agree with the steering issue statement.
Not to mention, the front axle of an N is light duty. They wear out

and break pretty easily under the strain of a loader.

I have a loader on a 9N, and a loader on an NAA and recently

added power steering to the NAA.

They work great for light work, but are not going to cut it for heavy work.

Thanks for the info and advice. I do all of the tractor work and equipment maintenance for a ranch and equestrian facility using their JD 3020 loader tractor. The owner (a widow) wants a small tractor for the barn manager and horse trainer to use to drag the arenas. I found a nice 2N but she asked if we could put a loader on it. I'll advise her to allow me to do all of the loader work with the JD 3020, but if she wants a loader on the 2N, just use it for light work (shavings or moving some small hay bales). Any other weaknesses of a 2N verses 8N?

If you just have to have an N series tractor go with the late 8N. The 8N has one more forward gear if you only have the factory transmission but there was a couple add on aux transmissions like the Sherman which if a combo would give it 12 forward. Also the late 8N as in May of 1950 and later had as side mount distributor which by far was a heck of a lot better and that system held up far better then the front mount distributor. The front mount has a weak coil and was known to cause problems often. I have a late 1950 8N with both loader and back hoe and it sits a lot of the time not running but most of the time it will start right up with little or no work to it
