Another project, could not pass this one up.

1940 "I think" 9N serial # 10570 this one has aluminum upper/lower steering housing,aluminum pto covers and 3 point control lever is aluminum. Has 2 rib fenders , and the old style block. No smooth axle. How common is the aluminum parts? So close to being a 39 model but a few hundred numbers away.
Any ideas???

Time to start gathering up the few missing parts and see if there is any fire left in the wire.

Very true my friend. Already started the slow road down the treasure hunt path for some of the many missing parts. The old girl lived a hardworking life,the battle scars and "home made n handy" features are what tells the true story. I'm proud to own whats left of it 80 years later, and now the journey of basketcase # 2 has officially began.

WANTED. 40 model used parts, please inform..

Stay tuned, I think I have tractor #5 lined up. A late 42 9N.
Tractor fever is on..

Interesting way they rigged the limiter chains to control the height of the lift arms. Hooked directly to the arms in place of the limit chains from the PTO output cover area.

The lift arm adjustment on the right lift arm appears to be a real turnbuckle instead of the Ford gearbox. The other side is unusual, too but I can't see details.

If you get that tractor running with even non-original parts, it will be a real conversation piece!

Old style block is the one without the round hole in side, located right side of the oil filter canister,otherwise known as a freeze out plug. :roll: :roll:
The ultra rare Budweiser cover, in reality is a Billy beer can. Around here we roll on peanuts. Lol.

This actually was a parts tractor and was running when parked "years ago". The block is cracked and welded, so that would exclude the serious restoration. Very few that I have seen are not cracked.

I try to find these old beast, put them back as original as possible with used parts and that's where it ends.
Always heard the aluminum steering housings and other parts are very rare, I own 2 sets.
The dog ears are long gone, I only have the 1 rear wheel, starter,generator, etc were used on the restoration tractor and I was contacted by the owner and offered what was left over.

I like the low numbers and some of the pieces caught my eye. I would like to find the missing parts and put them in the basket. Thanks for responding and sharing your knowledge.
I found a 42 9N w serial #9NBN. Recently. Basket case #3 could be in the works,who knows.

Stay tuned.

What is "the old style block"? The 9N & 2N PTO cover was cast iron, never aluminum, so you have some aftermarket part. The front wheels and tires are car parts, not the OEM 3 x 19's. I see the snap-in battery hood but not the cover. I can't see the RH side of engine but the original should have the 1-Wire/3-Brush generator, the roundcan cutout, the 1-Wire Starter Motor with NO solenoid, horizontal bar aluminum grille, 4-spoke steering wheel, non-pressurized radiator -the big box type, the STANT chromed radiator cap, chromed shifter knob, starter pushbutton, key switch, and ignition 'ON' lamp on dash just to name a few OEM parts. What is that do-hickey by the oil filter canister at 7 O-Clock? Whatever it is it ain't original. Do you have the doglegs? Are they smooth? The steel hood shows some cancer but would be correct and I see the added hole cut for the vertical extended air cleaner pipe. I cannot tell if your rear rims are the OEM 6-LOOP type, or if aftermarket loops. They are not Hat Rims. If OEM loops, they're very rare and worth salvaging so check for cancer from Ca Chl. 1940 serial numbers began at 9N-10243.If you have 10570, you have an early '40 model and if block isn't cracked, a worthy restoration project. Be prepared to shell out big bucks locating OEM parts. I've heard of a few guys recently with 9N-10000-B generators. The alum grille and 4-spoke strg whl can be bought as new aftermarket units but nothing else is repopped today.

It is the ultra rare, early 9N crushed Budweiser can oil fill/ breather tube cap!
