Matt, I have more than a couple of 9, 2, 8Ns. All but one are very close to original and 6 volt. My remaining 9N (I recently sold four of them) I bought as a parts tractor. There was no restorative value in it as it had an industrial engine, but there were a number of early 9N parts that I could sell. I got the tractor running and so I kept it in running condition, although I sold some of the collectable parts and replaced them with newer ones. The tractor was twelve volts when I got it. Kept it that way. I replace the points with EI a couple of years ago and it has worked well since. It's your tractor. Do what you want with it. John Smith was a Ford tractor enthusiast who restored many old Fords, but he converted his working tractors to 12 volts.
