That looks identical to the handle on the F&T overdrive that is in my 2N. I split the tractor to do some engine work, and took the auxiliary apart to see if it needed any work. If it looked bad I would have pulled it out and replaced with an original input shaft rather than try to find parts. Mine looked fine, and bearings were good, so I put it back together and left it in there. The transmission uses straight-cut gears, so it's noisy, but works good. My shift handle turned out to be brass. After removing 14 layers of old paint I decided to polish the handle.
Here's a couple pages of info I found about the F&T. Maybe the admins can add these to the manuals area.
The handle on the first page looks a little different, but the guts of mine are identical to the brochure. I suspect the handle and other parts may have gone through several changes.
