I was taking off the manifold today to check for cause of ticking sound.Nut at #4 was turning stud. I've read in archives to drain radiator fluid before removing stud. Do I have to drain the whole radiator? How difficult is it to replace the stud? Any tips? Thank you.

Drain cooling system because the manifold studs can/do go into the water jacket. As for how much I drain it all just to be sure not to loose any and or cause other problems. The stud is a simple stud and easy to replace but you need a tread sealer so the stud does not leak. Also brass nuts help with that problem in the future

Just remove the stud and let it drain itself to the level of the manifold. Put a pan or bucket under the engine to catch the old coolant if need be. I doubt you will get more than a couple quarts.

Your 9N serial # comes up as a late '46 or early '47 2N.
