After sitting idle for at least a week I tried to start the 2N today. It was -12 here at 7 AM. I cranked it and cranked it, then it sputtered to life. Had to use 2 hands to move the shift lever, that oil was like molasses. Gotta love those old tractors. :D

Mine's still 6 volt. When its this cold I have to jump it with my truck. On a side note! I broke my backblade earlier this week. I need to go have that thing welded. We are getting snow tonight!

wood' n coal,
Your pics bring back good memories. I used to spend a lot of time on a Ford front-end-loader very similar to the one you have now. I think the model i used was an 800 and the loader was almost identical to yours. Nice looking rig, take good care of that baby.

1946 9N


The 9N was manufactured from 1939 to 1941, the 2N from 1942 to 1947, and the 8N from 1948 to 1952. The NAA was made from 1953 (Golden Jubilee-Ford's 50th. anniversary) to 1954.

If yours was built in 1946 then it's a 2N.

You can jump a 6 volt from a 12 volt without any problems? Wish I had known that. My tractor would die from time to time and I had to break out the old charger, switch it to 6 volt and wait an hour or so until it was charged - I thought!! Guess I never asked anyone and just assumed. Yeah I know the whole assume thing!!

I have a Simplicity 18hp Sovereign garden tractor with 48" deck.
Kioti LB 1914 4x4 compact tractor with loader and frame mount Backhoe. Just bought used last summer (Now I cant live without it) great for moving wood and coal and whatever comes to mind.
Troy built rear tine Pony tiller. Now that I have the backhoe the tiller sits idle lol.
Heres a pic of my new toy. Not much I guess but she's all mine.

I jump my 6 volt with 12 volts by jumping to the starter. Not by jumping battery to battery. It's not great for it but It hasn't broken anything yet. And I remember my dad doing it when I was a kid. It's still going.
