The Ford radiator shroud wasn't added until mid 1943 at s/n 109503 when they obsoleted the bulky non-pressurized radiator and changed it to the 2N 4 PSI pressurized radiator. I never had an overheating issue with either my early 9N or early 8N tractor except once when i first got my 8N and overfilled the radiator. That is the #1 cause of overheating an N.
