|nondem said: (quoted from post at 15:28:05 01/22/13) I'm aware of Smiths site....Since the I-Beams could be found on some 2Ns that rules them out. If the tool box doesn't interchange it might be the only sure way.|
The front axle support/doglegs are very good clues. Early 2N's used the 9N cast support but had a different radiator support with a cutout and a tapped hole on the front for retaining the 8N teardrop flanged style axle pin. That support also had brackets for through bolts that held the doglegs on from the outside and those bolts should be clearly visible from well beyond 10 feet ;-) Later 2N's used the 8N two piece stamped steel support and the same bolt on style doglegs as Ford ramped up for 8N production.
