Yep, and equally, if not even more elusive, is the Ford-Ferguson MOTO-TUG! Most all units that survived have all been scarfed up by restorers now and parts are rare as hen's teeth today. As with many parts, they were not cast or stamped with a part number, date code ID tag, and/or the FORD logo so you have to had done your homework and know exactly what to look for. There is a guy on YTMAG ADS Forum with a 1939 9N for sale, no connection to me. I see a horizontal bar grille and 4-spoke steering wheel but those two early 9N parts are now repopped with good US quality and probably what he has, not an issue. Also note 32" rears on smooth hubs, but larger generator with the cutout, oval tube rad rods, and 16" fronts would not be on a '39.

1939 9N AD:

The 2N-17040 Handcrank, used on the Warhorse, had a wood spinner handle and a spring loaded device to retain the crank in the kingpin. No electrics to start, you used the handcrank with the front choke lever to start the tractor with. Some guys made their own. I think Chris Eby did that so you might ask him. You can get a spring at Century Spring. There was a ho-made drawing of the crank somebody did years ago but it is wrong. The original crank was 11/16" in diameter but the repop drawing has it at 5/8". New, aftermarket cranks are sold at Just8Ns -see link. I don't know how accurate they are but you can add a spring and wood handle to make a warhorse crank.
