  • I had a pair of smooth dog legs with no cutouts. Wish I had kept them now. Did not think it was a big deal until folks say they don't exist.

  • Chris-
    The early 9N smooth doglegs never had the punch-outs for headlights. Lighting kits were always optional accessories for all N tractors and in the beginning they just didn't sell all that many. Smoothies pop up all the time here and on ebay. There is a How-To document, or an old post on how to fab the mounting bracket too.

  • pic of Don Knasel's 1940. Notice the "SMOOTH" dog legs. The cut outs did not appear until 1941. I know no body believes me so I will continue looking for documents to back me up. My 1940 ate a tree so its has all 2N sheet metal now LOL.

  • I agree with ya Dan, was just trying to get it in writing. MPC's show no p/n suffix that would indicate a change and transitioning from the smooth aluminum doglegs to the smooth steel ones should have a rev on them. I always thought the doglegs didn't get the knockouts until the 2N style were released and that was around the early '41 grille change period. The 2N doglegs don't appear until til the JAN 1946 MPC, BUT, there was never a '43, 44, or 45 MPC excluding the Moto-Tug one and that still lists the 9N doglegs as it should because the Moto-Tug was built on a 1942 9N. NOTE: The 2N model was not built until October, 1942 and those first ones were the warhorses. All Ford production came to a halt on February 10, 1942 per the US War Board restrictions on US manufacturing. If in doubt, it is documented in books. More proof: The JAN 1942 MPC lists not a single '2N' prefixed part -what does that tell you? There is a July 1943 Price List that shows all the warhorse 2N parts and a few standard ones. By May, 1943, Ford was ramping up to standard 2N production now that the war restrictions were lifted. MPC's were written months before the date shown on them. Those dates are merely an approximate effective date. Now, the July, 1947 MPC shows the 9N-16618 and 9N-16619 side panels (doglegs) used 39-43. The 2N doglegs are shown being used from 42-48. Yet another reason we need a set of 9N blueprints.

  • I put in a order for the prints for the 9N, 2N and 8N dogleg prints. The NAA doglegs carry the same partnumber but I am not concerned with them.

  • here are a couple of pictures of my 1939 tractor dog legs. clearly there are knock outs for the lights present. maybe these dog legs are not original to the tractor? but, the hood definitely is the original to the tractor.help me out on what is correct or incorrect. I need all the help I can get!chris

  • 9N 3662 had knock-outs. You really had to look close but all 4 were there.

  • My 1939 also has those knock outs and I believe it's doglegs are original.
