Pictures! Pictures!

" the radius rod is now too long."

Some PO probably replaced it w/ the wrong length; the length changed over the years. Check John Smith's site for the different lengths.

Holy buckets, Bruce! I measured the radius rods on the 2N at roughly 38-5/8" long and on the 50 8N sitting beside her at about 37" long. I'm still puzzled by this. I feel pretty confident that the 8N rods are original to that tractor, so the 2N rods must have been originally longer as well. Which makes me think that someone must have wrecked the front axle mount and replaced it with a later style from an 8N. The wear that I uncovered and the wide front car tires would suggest heavy loader use.

Was the front axle mounting changed that significantly between 2N and 8N?

Still puzzled in Minnesota...

I'm reasonably sure that the parts do not interchange. It's difficult to tell for sure just by looking at the parts catalog. They carry the same p/n, but a different model is specified.

Just like the radius rods, which are the same pn with an alpha suffix added. Unfortunately, the parts manual does not seem to detail what the changes were between suffixes, which kind of leaves a guy guessing, or learning by trial and error which can be expensive.
