Chad.........congratulatons, you have the braggin' rights to 1947 2N. ALL 2N's s/n start with 9N. (ittza Ford thing) Surprizingly enuff, ALMOST ALL 2N parts start with 9N.

The ONLY thing you really haffta remember is when you have weak sparkies, you un-snapple the capple and 2-bolts and walk to the house and change the points (0.015") on the kitchen table. When points are done (0.015"), take yer 2-bolts and gently re-start them in the block. Now install yer ROTOR and rotate yer OFFSET rotor tang drive to fit the OFFSET camshaft drive slot. Now tighten yer 2-bolts and re-snapple yer capple. Simple, eh?

Remember to "polish" the INVISIBLE CORROSION from between the points (0.015") after installation. Me? I clamp a clean $1-bill between the points (0.015") and pull. Iff' yer really cheap, tear a strip from HEAVY brown paper grocery sack and use that. ........HTH, Dell, yer self-appointed sparkie-meister

Chad........many 3-speed 2N's have the dealer installed high-low "Sherman" auxiliary tranny with shifter over yer left toe. Unlike modern automobile trannys, do NOT shift while running down the road. Just putter in expected gear and SLIP yer clutch to gitt moving. Simple, eh? ........Dell
