I took delivery on a 1943 2N the other day. Right after I hit the shed wall, I realized its clutch is on the left, not the right. I had driven an 8N a few days before that and could swear the 8N clutch was on the right. Am I crazy? Everybody says to shut off the gasoline when not in use. OK, but why?
The hydraulic hitch arms have to be chained down to the axle when the loader is in use. Is this normal? Is it OK? They worked fine, when I released them, but the loader is then useless.
Enough for now. I'll check in soon.

You have a neat tractor.The loader is comming directly off the tractors hydrolic pump.The arms need to be chained,so the pump will put full power to loader.Most all loaders you see on any N will have a pump running from off the engine.MOST N series tractors rarely had outboard hydrolics.I have seen many modifications on this system.The clutch on everything I ever drove was on the left.

If you hit the clutch and brake at about the same time you might have been switched in your thinking as to which one was accutely doing what.

You have to shut the gas off or it might flood the crankcase with gas and dilute the oil if there is a problem with the carb. The lift arms have to be chained down because the loader uses the same pump as the lift and when the lift arms cant move then all the oil is directed to the loader's hydraulic system.

As the Ns progressed the brake pedals moved to both on the right side but the clutch was on the left. For your other questions some of the N gurus will be along or repost on the N board. As weither your crazy or not you will have to ask Dr Zane.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
