By the pictures you sent me, you do not have an original 9N generator and Voltage Regulator. The genny is an early V8 unit. STEINER TRACTOR never sold a repop early 9N-10505-A Voltage Regulator. What you have is the 8N-10505-B unit that is now sold by everyone. It looks like this -
The 9N-10000-A genny was a 'B'-Circuit design. The 9N-10000-B genny, 1-wire/3-Brush, 'A' -circuit design unit and then used the roundcan cutout and all 9Ns and 2Ns subsequently after used it as well. The N generators were then 1-Wire/3-Brush A-Circuit units til the 8N, then they used a voltage regulator with 3-wire/3-brush gennys. The NAA Tractor went back to a B-Circuit unit. That is why I said you can easily replace your genny with a 9N-10000-C unit or the 2N-10000 unit and install the cutout and all will be right with the world if you want to keep it 6V. A 12V switch over will cost on average $200 for the alternator kit and about $125 for a decent 12V battery. To me either way the costs will be about the same.
