I have been on the hunt for a small and affordable tractor.I found this jewel sitting in a guy’s back yard and it had not been touched ina couple of decades. He gave me his price and I told him if it runs as good ashe claims he has a deal. I came back two weeks later and sure enough, thatthings runs like a sewing machine. The fuel system needs a good cleaning andthere are a few maintenance issues I have to deal with. But other than that,for a 72 year old tractor that has sat outside for so long I cannot complain. Ithas already been converted to 12V and I have no intension of restoring it. Ilike it just the way it is. I even like the drunken stupor flame job.



By the way, why does the serial start with 9N if this is a2N?

The 2N was a stripped down 9N but it was still a 9N so it kept the serial designation. All 2N's have 9N serials.

Thanks! Now I just have to locate a good source for parts and information. Google seems to have different pints of view.

View is most affordable in gallons.

This is the only pic I've got on my phone right now. She needs a good paint job but for the most part everything works on her.
