I have a 9n that has been running great, until recently. Now it starts and runs for about 2 minutes and dies, and I can't get it to start again. If I let it sit for a couple of days it will start again, for about 2 minutes.

Any ideas?

Sounds like your fuel flow is blocked in the fuel line. There are 3 screens, one is attached to the fuel shutoff valve inside the tank, the second is in the sediment bowl, the third is inside the brass elbow where the fuel line connects to the carburator. Start at the carb and work your way back until you find where its blocked.

Clueless...........there are 4-common runtime issues to the 4-nipple frontmount distributor'd 9N.

1) runs for about 1-min and dies, restarts in about 5-mins, bad condenser; NOT your stated problem
2) runs for about 5-mins and dies, restarts in about 10-mins; clogged fuel filters (3ea); sound like your stated problem???
3) runs for about 15-mins and dies; restarts in about 30-mins; BAD ignition switch. Could be yer problem
4) runs for about 1-hr and dies; restarts in 4-hrs or overnite cooldown. Not your stated problem.

And of course, there is always your ignition points. Check them for wear and gap = 0.015".

You do know its a 15-min job to remove the 2-bolts and change your points on your kitchen table, don't you? The distributor is driven by an "off-set" tang scheme and you CANNOT install out of time. Simple, eh?........Dell

I had the same problem and wound up being the points. I agree with Dell, removing the distributor is easy.
