I have a Ford 9N and I need to adjust the brakes and clutch if possible. Can someone please help me out? I see the square adjuster on the brakes but dont know which way to turn it, if that is truely what the square peg is for next to the axle just next to the seat, a neighbor said that was it. Also is there anyway to adjust the clutch? Thanks for any advice, I have asked a guy up here in Northern Michigan for help, but he just blew me off, been the story of my life lately.

Measured where? The proper free play is 3/16" measured at the clutch pedal stop as shown below. The two travels shown are critical for proper operation of the 9N/2N cllutch/brake pedal combo.

b.jones said: (quoted from post at 21:10:10 07/03/10) Yes, the square shaft is your brake adjustment. I also have a tractor like yours and it has been several years since I adjusted the brakes, but you can turn it both ways , one way will tighten them up and the other way will make the pedal go down further. Please let us know what problem you have. Why are you adjusting the clutch? Not enough free play or too much. The clutch adjustment is a small clevis under the back part of the clutch pedal. There is supposed to be 3/16 inch of free play but I know my tractor has more than that and it works fine. You are at the right place to get information, these guys know tractors well. Hope this helps, if not post back and we'll give it another try.


Free play on the 9N clutch is related to the left brake adjustment/operation. The clutch pedal is designed to apply the left brake by contacting the brake pedal at the precise point the clutch disengages - e.g. it is both the clutch and a second left brake pedal. If the free play on the clutch and/or left brake pedal is excessive that function doesn't work properly.

If you don't already have an I&T FO-4 manual I suggest you get one. It'll help you immensly with both of those very simple, though overwhelming to a newbie adjustments. We were all there at first. Get a manual and read it. You'll be able to ask more intelligent questions - not that you didn't mind you - and understand oft times complex answers.
This is a great board and all the help and info is here if you only ask and are willing to turn the wrenches.
Welcome. ]These are great, fun, simple little tractors.

the square 'peg' is the brake adjuster.

assuming your brakes are not oil soaked or worn out, jack up the rear and adjust untill the brakes drag, then back off just a bit. can't remember what direction.. but ti will become obvious real fast..:)

clutch pedal free play can be adjusted with a clevis/rod.. just take a look at the pedal/
you might want to grab an I&T fo-4 service manual.. lots of good stuff in it.

Turn the adjuster clockwise to tighten the brakes.You want clutch free play at 3/4 to one inch.Your 3/16 is too little.
