1940 Ford 9N in need of restoration work. It has the original aluminum dash with the ignition light that identifies it as an early 1940 machine(possibly '39, but I was told it was a '40). The hood is a later type though, and it has a 1946 engine (serial # almost completely gone; year taken from casting date on starter mount) and what I think is the 9N-10000-C generator. I used it for several months and wanted to do a complete tear-down and restoration on it, but itís a project Iíve run out of time and money for.
It starts and runs very well but gets power to the rear wheels only intermittently; my guess is that there is probably damage to some gears in the differential, as I found metal debris in the sump under the differential when I drained the old oil, but it was clean under the transmission. The clutch and transmission appear to be operating well.
I rebuilt the carburetor and restored the fuel line to original condition; it needs a new choke knob and rod.
I overhauled the electrical system with all new and weatherproofed wiring, new coil, distributor cap, spark plugs and wires. I cleaned the air cleaner and changed the engine oil and filter and the transmission/hydraulic oil.
Implements: homebuilt 6í front snow blade, Howse 6í backblade, snow chains, Dearborn #19-22 front end loader with hydraulic pump (needs correct shaft and hub -- I have these but I think they are for an 8N). I also have snow chains for the rear wheels.
Tractor and front blade: $1900; back blade:$350; Dearborn loader $175; Snow chains $150
I'm in northern Wisconsin, where I have also posted this sale on craigslist; there are pics there (linked below), and I have more detail pics on file.
