I"m going to be the proud new owner of a 39 9n with a belly mower. The colorful past includes being in a barn fire, being pushed out of the barn by the fire dept (in the 50s) and rolling down a hill into and under the Rock River in IL. It was purchased by the fire Chief responsible for getting it in the water, and he restored it years ago. I read the "tips" on changing the gear oil, but where exactly is the plug located that I remove when it shows when oil comes out it"s full? I bought a manual but it hasn"t come yet. Also I need to replace a leaking pto seal. Thanks, Kurt

Congratulations on the new tractor!
Transmission, hydraulics and rear end use a common sump on the 9N/2N/8N and there is a dipstick to check the level.
On an early '39, that would be on top of the transmission next to the shifter. On the later ones it would be on the round inspection cover by your right heel.
If yours is missing, the bottom bolt in that same round inspection cover is the one to use for checking the level.
Be prepared, you'll need about 4 1/2 Gallons of 134D spec oil.

Also be prepared with a BIG bucket to catch it all
in. Start with the pipe plug in the rear end and
work your way forward. The owners manual and the I&T
FO4 manual will be helpful (not only with this task
but in future maintenance). Have fun and be safe.

while you are changeing the oil it would be a good time to replace the PTO seal.
keep in mind you will be draining around five gallons of mineral oil
FYI the bottom plug for the 2" hole is a 1 1/16th's inch.

90 mineral oil costs less.Be aware that the ring and pinion gears are the same ones used in Model A Ford trucks that used 140 gear oil in summer.134 thins when hot.
