I'm doing some research on my brothers Ford tractor. Serial #9n179784. It's been a daily workhorse out here in Albuquerque, but I'm having trouble adjusting the carburator. Anyone have any suggestions? thank you jbk

That serial # would indicate your brothers tractor to be a 1945 2N. I will include a link below to John Smith's great page on help to identify N series tractors. As for the carburetor, the small screw is the idle adjusting needle and the large one is the power adjusting needle. Initial setting for both is approximately one turn counterclockwise from the seated position. Adjustment procedure from the FO-4 as follows:
With engine running at idle speed, turn the idle adjusting screw in until the engine falters from an overly rich mixture, then turn the screw out until the engine runs smoothly.
The final adjustment of the main needle should be made with the engine running at governed speed under full load. Turn the adjustment screw in until the engine just begins to lose power, then turn the screw out until the power picks up and the engine runs smoothly. If the engine hesitates or backfires when picking up a load, turn adjusting screw out about 1/8 turn more to enrich the mixture.
Hope this helps.
