Got three with the extra loops, one has the long pin. Not sure about my neighbors 40 model. People get into trouble asking machinery to do more than the laws of physics allow. They pulled the All Crop 60 with 9N's back in the forties. It was hard to get it started without live PTO, so once going they ran all day without stopping the machine. Driver swaps were tricky with just the foot pegs.
Only rode the bagging platform on that thing once when I was a kid. Dirty job. Been parked in its shed now for 52 years. Use a Gleaner F these days.
The N series is banned from loaded hay wagons as not heavy enough to control em going downhill, and it's a lot more pleasant putting wagons away with the air conditioned 5640.
Amazing how far tractors have come since '39.
