FORD TRACTOR 9N Radiator upper hose is part number 9N-8260, 1.5" ID; 1-7/8" OD; 7-9/16" long. The short length was used on the early non-pressurized radiator. When the 2N-8005 Pressurized radiator was released, it also now used a longer upper hose. The 2N hose is 10" long, used thru the 8N Model. Check your radiator for the correct hose. If you have the 2N Pressurized Radiator, you'll need the 2N-8260 hose. Here is a LINK to find a reliable supplier for all your parts. The DC upper hose includes the thermostat band too. DC also has the lower hose and OEM style hose clamps too.
