HHHMMMM... never saw a web site with that info, but doesn't mean it isn't out there and many of us would like to see that. If you find it, please post back with the LINK. I just don't see how that would be possible though. Think about it for a minute. The 9N, 2N, and 8N 4-cylinder flat-head tractors have the gas tank bolted to the hood. If it has lights, originally the headlight wire was run up one side and secured the gas tank lip with clips. The back of hood is fastened to the dash panel. The doglegs are fastened to the hood as well. The air cleaner, on the 8N has its door on the hood side panel. 9N/2N models may have a thru the hood stack. Add the fact that the hood would be inhibited from forward motion with the grille and radiator in place. Not only is it impractical, it would be impossible to do, IMHO.
Like Bruce(VA) said, Ford 9N, 2N, and 8N Series tractors never had flip-up hoods. It was the Ferguson TE/TO models with OHV engines that offered flip-ups. The NAA and Hundred Series models offered access via the hood as well.
