Brad-
Where did you look for 'kingpin' info? I found almost 125,000 posts in the archives on the topic. FWIW & FYI: ALL N-Tractors came with a hand crank. Early 9Ns included one in the toolkit and later with the 2N it was added in a parts shipping kit, p/n 2N-17003 (SEE MY PIC), and issued with each new tractor, then remained as such until the end of 8N production. Most were lost or tossed aside in barns and sheds and/or never used. They are great tools to have when testing a new rebuilt engine for one example. If you can't see or find the kingpin opening, someone welded it shut, probably when they installed the FEL. There were three versions of the hand starting crank. The OEM 9N-17040; the 2N-17040 spring loaded/wood handled model issued with the 2N warhorse only; and the NAA-17040 with pilot knuckle forged on - SEE MY PIX. You cannot use the hand crank if you have a bumper guard/grille attached -it will not allow clearance to turn. Bumper guards were optional accessories -never an OEM factory installed unit. There was ho-made sketch here somewhere for those who want to make your own. It does however have the wrong diameter of stock used. The OEM crank is an 11/16" diameter steel bar and the sketch shows 5/8" diameter. Hope this helps…
