I tell you if its anything like mine, they are a BEAR to read the numbers. I think when mine was built, they gine the punch guy a WAY to small of a hammer.

Re: N Serial Number Location

Ken, thanks for the email about this website. I like the looks of it so far....about the serial number...I've tried several different things but I have not been able to make out what mine is. I really wish I could. I can see part of it but not enough.

Re: N Serial Number Location

Welcome to MTF YellowHawk!!!

I had a real tough time with mine also. I ended up sanding the aera before I could see it. Dont sand to much or with real corse paper though, or you could sand it off. I have also had luck with sanding it, sprying with a light coat of black paint, and sanding agean. the black falls into the numbers and shows up better.

Re: N Serial Number Location

I tried wire wheeling the s/n and also sprayed some paint on it. It made some of the digits easier to read but I still cannot make out the entire number. The dates on my axle trumpets are 7/21/47 so I guess mine is a 1947-1948 model tractor? That's my closest guess. It's a front mount distributor so I know its before 1950.

Re: N Serial Number Location

Ken -
Thanks for the e-mail about this site! I haven't had much time to explore, but it looks good so far! I have a question about the ground cable in the photo. Where did Ford put those originally? I know it doesn't matter much, I seen them about 8 different places, but was just curious.

Re: N Serial Number Location

drbailey, I'll have to go out there and look Friday. I know you can read the 8N, but the number following I'm not sure about. I'll take another look and let you know Friday.

I think you will fall into this category or year model.
1941 Serial number 9N46018 - 9N88933
Left brake pedal was now different from the right. Front spindle grease fittings were moved to the rear side. Steel grille with vertical bars appeared. A 3 spoke steering wheel with straight molded plastic covered spokes appeared midyear.

Re: N Serial Number Location

Aye...yup, that's her.
But what about the presence of a magnito, generator and starter? is that typical? I thought the magnito was for the early years when there were shortages of electrical components and the generator and starter came on the 2N.

Re: N Serial Number Location

does this help?

1942 Serial number 9N88934 - 9N99046
No major changes.

Model 2N 1942 - 1947

Introduced mid 1942 amid wartime material shortages, some tractors were built with steel wheels and magneto ignitions, with no electrics at all. A hand crank served as the starter. Common belief is that the model designation was changed to 2N mainly to get around wartime price controls. Very little change from the 9N. Most people continue to refer to these tractors as 9N's. All 2N serial numbers began with "9N".
