If you do indeed have an 8N motor, then you would probably have the 8N governor with the oil line. Early 9Ns and 2Ns didn't have the oil line to the governor, were three arms, not two like the 8N, but if a customer brought his tractor in to the dealer for service, they were instructed to add the oil line to the governor. It says this in the repair manual- see LINK below. So, if it is a 3-armgovernor with oil line it is later 2N or earlier 9N that was altered. You will find this also explained on John Smiths' site, under TRACTOR ID/HISTORY as well as many other parts that will help you identify model year. Since your is a mutt, the important thing is hat you get 8N parts for the motor. Hydraulics would be the 9N/2N style, draft control only. Electrics, well, we haven't even discussed those yet have we? 6 volt or 12 volt?
