Bought a good looking 8N, or so I thought. Being a front mounted distributor, the old man said it was a '49 model. Looks, runs great, but when I scraped off the paint, the serial # is: 9N18161

I searched everywhere for other numbers: left axle said 9610, rt axle says 1118_0. Lower left transmission casing says: L20_0 Haven't found any more.

The dash has a cut out for a proofmeter but clearly no where to hook it up.

Do I have a miss mash of 9's and 8's? I don't care, tractor is super.

jim, how many gears does it have? not counting reverse, 3 speed you have either a 9 or 2 n if its got 4 you have a 8n with a 9 n engine, nothing wrong with that, and not really much difference at all, if you have wheels with a large bolt pattern, like a early 60's vw, its a 9 or a 2, if its got a smaller bolt pattern its a 8n, let us know

It has the four forward gears and definite 8N looks, such as original (I think) running boards.
Bolt pattern is small with, get this, shiny chrome hubcaps. (Lots of chrome, like grill, starter cover,front wheel lugs, etc.

Guess I was just surprised with that serial #.

You have an 8N with a replacement engine from a 9N.

The casting code L 20 0 could be a date code for
December 20 1950 (or November depending if the I was used or not). Which would mean that your transmission was cast in late 1950.
[Has any one found a date code starting with M?]
