YEP - it's engine block s/n 9N-288898 for sure, so casting date code would only confirm. It has an 8N hood, fenders, radius rods possibly more, can't tell by one picture. Jay says it is a 3-speed with Hi-Lo but I don't see a Sherman shifter. It may be on the RH side??? It is a mutt and Jay wanted to know if he should change it all over to a 2N model. I said no, it runs the way it is, and who knows how much else is 8N. Wouldn't be worth the expense. It just reiterates my statement that the serial number is a moot point. You've ID'd the engine block to a '47 and now should concentrate on everything mechanical and electrical related to that, including all the 8N alterations.
