No, not an 8N block Don. If it was it would have the "8N" s/n prefix. All 9N's and 2N models used the "9N" prefix. The 8N model began using s/n's with the "8N" prefix. Now that Kirk has posted pictures of it, I see several incorrect parts too that he didn't mention. The Fuel Sediment Bulb would be the original Brass one for instance. Smooth rear hubs and 32" rims too, and probably had the early 6-loop rims as well. In the past few years, every early 9N i have seen at auctions has had incorrect parts on it. Heck one I saw even had an alternator and it was listed as 'all original'.
