I recently purchased a Ford 8N tractor, and once I started doing work to it I noticed that the engine has an 8N serial number on it but the rest of the tractor from the bellhousing back matches the description of a 9N. All the engine and transmission and everything back is all painted red like a 8N, I chipped off some paint to see if it was other than red and there is no other color underneath. It doesn't look like anything had been changed somewhere along the line. I read a few articles that mentioned "hybrids", what does this mean. I am new to owning a tractor, so any help would be greatly appreciated. I am also having a problem getting my throttle adjusted right, any help there would be appreciated also.
Thank You,
Chuck

chuck, if you have a 4 speed transmission not including reverse, then it is an 8n.
get an owners manual from this site, you'll need it.
if it is a 9 or 2 N then they will have a 3 speed transmission.
welcome!

Chuck...there are a couple of places you can look for cast-in dates on the tractor. The lower leading edge of each rear axle & on the pump base plate. You'll have to climb under & wipe some grease off to read the pump base.

The "hybrid" tractors are when two or more damaged tractors are used to make one complete working tractor. So many parts are interchangeable from the earliest to last N.

It may be something with the carborator, I would have it looked at.
