This appears to be, from the bolt holes for the oil filter, made for the 9n/2n and early front dizzy 8n. Sure it will bolt to the later style side dizzy 8n block but you will have to relocate the oil filter holes so that it clears the generator when it moved from one side to the other. Here is an aftermaket head that will show the different location. Just something to keep in mind when buying parts.

I missed out on some about five years ago. They were at a swap meet mixed in with some auto/truck parts. A friend of a friend picked them up (2) for $10. each. I was about 15 minutes late on getting there. (pays to go early). My friend has been trying to buy one of them since that time. Finally he convinced him to sell one for $75 dollars a couple of months ago. I have seen them sell for a much as $500. back in the day but in this economy I doubt if it will sell for more than $250 unless someone really, really has to have it.

Re: Shermann Aluminum Head

My question to the ??????(not too many brains) that buys this. "Are you going to paint it red or leave it as aluminum color?" If you paint it, there will be no difference than the old original design, except the person will claim he has a "rare" engine head, and who cares. If e wants something shiny on the engine, take the head he has now and have it chromed. What one would pay for this on ebay, the chrome shop will do it for much less.

Wonder why the seller wants to get "rid" of the rare dude. Probably all due to the fact it want mate to the engine block due to it being aluminum and that never did work very well and leaked.

Hahaha you must really know what you're talking about this.

This is obvious, seems more like a scam.

Re: Shermann Aluminum Head

Well!, one person loves a aluminum 'N" tractor head. As he paid $787.71 for it. Must be he will mount it on his all Ford Tractor trophy rack. Otherwise, it won't make his old vintage "N" run any better....or maybe worse.
