i have a 41 9N and i want to check the rear brakes and was wondering how to get the drum off. the bolts or studs or whatever look rather nasty. so what does hold the drum to the rear axle? or would the nuts be rusted out of shape? need help

Get the manual, but in short.

Jack and support the rear. Pull you hopefully not weighted wheel (be careful here)

Remove the 6 nuts from the back side of the axle and carefully remove the whole axle assembly (to include the axle shaft. It's heavy and kinda akward, but will come out. Don't hammer on the studs you just removed without putting the nuts loosely on them. Some fluid might leak out.

Remove the brake assembly (you might have to loosen the adjuster) and remove the brake assembly. The drum and axle should be left there after that.

ziggy - I have a 1950 8N so I don't know yours would be the same. On mine there are studs coming out of the hub that the fit thru the drum holes. What I'd reccommend is buying an FO-4 manual. They can be purchased from this site or from places like TSC for around $20. I can tell you its the best $20 I have spent on my tractor. It shows many exploded views and is fairly easy for even someone like me to understand.
