Absolutely agree with Kurt here. Put the money into it that you will get out of it in the work it can do for you. I'll probably have my 9N the rest of my life and may restore it someday as a hobby thing. You can buy it at my estate sale someday. In the mean time I keep it going to run a manure spreader that needs dumped once or twice a week. The 8N goes down the road when I get something more modern.
Do what you have to do to get it running and sell, if that's the plan. An oil pump isn't too bad a job, did it to the 9N in my garage over a weekend when it went to zero, keeps a steady 20 psi now. Doesn't see hard work anymore so that's good enough. The engine is worn enough that it isn't going to get better. Was able to get the pan off without removing the front axle, you may not be as lucky.
Let us know how you do with it.
