I'm looking to find out what kind of oil goes into the rear of this tractor. I was told it should be hydraulic oil, but the oil that came out of it when I replaced the PTO seal wasn't hydraulic oil. Thanks

Interesting. So they were building both 9Ns and 2Ns simultaneously in 42 and 43 yet there is virtually no difference in them, as I understand it.
Were they coming out of different factories?

All I know is my Ford tractor dealer told me the same thing in the early 70s regarding 9N and 2N overlapping production. I would only be guessing but might have something to do with options. Rubber or steel wheels . Battery or magneto ign.

Looks like a misprint. The 2N came out in 1942 and the serial numbers continued where the 9N ended and did not restart with 1. The serial number format was still 9N######, which leads to the confusion of many people that all 2N's are 9N's. The 2N was just a 9N with some updates here and there, most which continued unchanged until the 8N came in 1948.

Ultradog MN said: (quoted from post at 22:39:36 06/07/10) No such thing as a 43 9N.

Correct oil for the rear end on that tractor is a UTF meeting Ford 134D specs. Wally world, Fleet Farm, Tractor supply all sell a generic replacement. Look for 134 on the lable.

Some guys are too sick, lame or lazy to fix leaking seals etc and so run 80W90. I'ts a little thicker.


Ultradog is correct, though he could have given a little follow up information.

The 9N was made beginning in 1939, hence the "9."

Beginning in 1942 the model name was changed to the 2N, though there wasn't much difference in the two models.

The 8N came into production for the 1948 model year. It was a whole 'nother animal.

Re: hydraulic fluid. If you live in a warm weather state you might do better with 90wt mineral oil. 134 is pretty thin. Works great if you have to use the tractor in cold weather but I am not the only one to experience fast leak downs as well as major seepage through seals when I've used 134 in hot weather. I dumped it as quick as I could and went back to 90wt. What you had in there was likely hydraulic fluid that had a lot of water in it. Turns it kinda of a golden milky color.

Yea, but "compiled" is probably a more precise description than "write"!

About 5 years ago, I asked the folks here to post their favorite tips. I had a few personal favorites as did others. I edited them & put the list together.

As an example, I witnessed tip # 1 long before I ever owned an N. My buddy put the long bolt on top. I learned tips 8 & 42 by screwing it up the first time!
