I asked JUST8Ns and their reply was, "We had the shields for the 8N muffler. Not the original style 9N muffler. Not very much call for that item." Which is confusing because the 8N muffler never had a shield. I know I saw 9N muffler shield on their site a few months back. I don't remember if it was a used original one or a repop. It is understandable that some parts just are not reproduced by Carpenter based on lack of demand. The early Ford-Ferguson 9N Tractor is one of those. There are several early 9N owners/restorers, but apparently not enough to justify repopping some items. I was surprised by the many requests for early 9N generator brushes per my post from the other day. I had numerous requests by email and thus are not posted there. I have an original 9N5290 muffler shield and 9N-5252 clamp for my early 9N project. I will get a Carpenter reverse flow muffler for it soon as well, before they discontinue it. Perhaps Carpenter would realize there is a market by the fact that most ALL of the high-priced early 9Ns sold at auctions in the last ten years has had incorrect parts on them. That is partly because guys could not find the originals. Just saying...
