Belongs to my neighbor. Hasn't ran in a year. He drug it down
here last night and I got it running for him again this evening.

Engine block has a repair over the serial number.

Has I-Beam radius rods.

Solid rear axle/fender bolts, but riveted hubs.
third party image

No zerks on the front of the front spindles.
third party image

Front axle pin has been replaced with a solid steel bar, but it
appears to have the earlier set screw in the top to hold it in.
third party image

Interesting latching seat too, which is kind of nice.

There are no numbers cast into the rear axle trumpets and none

in the bottom of the hydraulic pump, which, curiously, is pretty
much spotlessly clean. It was his grandfather's tractor.

None of the serial number is readable Tim and its a cutout.

I'm not sure why the cutout is there, since it has a 12V
conversion with a Delco 3 wire alternator on it. I may have

to get into that wiring though as it kills the battery even
while driving and charging 10+ amps.

Spindles are interior pinch bolts, not keyed.

Here are a few more pictures just for fun.
Tractor running at ~800-1000 RPM shortly after startup.

Oil pressure is right on 40 psi. Photo was taken at an angle.

YEP, clearer now. It has the cutout still to prove that many 12-volt jobs are done incorrectly; "it kills the battery even while driving" -proof is in the pudding. I once had a guy bring me his 9N with a cobbled up 12-volt nightmare. He said he couldn't get it started. He had it wired all wrong, with the cutout AND a voltage regulator somehow in the circuit and bypassed the ballast resistor. Nothing worked. Oh, he said he did the "conversion" himself. What are your plans then with this?

Two piece dash would suggest a later '41. No dip stick on the round cover suggest a '40 but would have had a transmission cover dipstick, can't tell from photo. If no dipstick something was changed out down the line,as you know not uncommon.

Key switch is on the side of the steering column, push button
on the top of the transmission cover by the shifter. Dash and
trans cover are not aluminum as a magnet sticks to them.

I think most of them in this age group have had parts swapped

around so seeing one that's a bit of a mutt is no surprise.

I have a seat just like that on my '40. I am convinced it was an after market bracket. Aluminum dash? Location of key switch?

HiYa Royse-
Is any of the s/n visible? Like Kirk said, the solid rear axle bosses were changed to the open style in '41. Front spindle Zerks moved from front to back as well in '41. Safety starter button moved from dash to shifter cover in early 1940 at s/n 12500. '41 also saw dash changed from alum to cast iron, then 2-pc cast iron at s/n 80770. Key switch moved to LH steering column. '43 saw the original non-pressurized radiator changed to the 2N 4-PSI type. Also in '43 front spindles were keyed. '44 saw the I-Beam rad rods changed to oval tube type. I'd concur it's a '40-'41. What is that on back of dash? Is that both a cutout and a voltage regulator??? Looks like 16" front wheels/tires too. Weird seat -never have seen that one before...

Kind of a mutt but probably close to 1941 9n. I'm betting it had a key switch on the column and dip stick for hydraulics on the round cover? Later doglegs.
