We have all the MPC's in the library: The 9N - 1940, 1941, 1942, md 1946. There were no MPCs issued for the war years 1943, 1944, and 1945. The JAN 1946 MPC was the last 9N/2N one. Technically there was no 1947 manual because all the 2Ns sold in '47 were already built in '46 and sold to deplete inventory as Harry Ferguson was fired by Henry Ford II in 1946. In January, 1947, Dearborn Motors was incorporated and would be the new tractor and implement distributorship. In July, 1947 the new 8N was released to the public. There was no 8N MPC for 1951. In 1950 and 1951 there were many changes made to the 8N. The SEP 1952 MPC is now used a generic go-to-all for the N's however you need to read carefully as some early 9N parts are now listed as being superseded by their later cousins. The SEP 1952 is made new with "1939-1953" added and would be OK to use for all your needs. To get into the details you would need the JAN 1946 MPC. All these can be downloaded on our forum and there are CD's also with them. The 1969 Manual Dan shows is a later New Holland issue and has some errors but will work too for the basics. The 8N was revised after s/n 263843 so yours should have the side mount, later steering, LH 20 AMP generator, screw-on Bakelite knob on shifter handle, and script fenders to name a few.
