  • 9n upper steering cover
  • How about a little help from the forum? My 9n has the 9n3551-c upper steering cover, which includes the gauges and integrated battery shelf. The "ears" on mine have broken off, and have been bodged together by the PO, so a replacement part coming in a few days. I need to get the broken unit off. The cover is bolted to the steering base and shifter cover in four places. I've got the unit ready to lift off, but the darn thing is stuck fast to the base. I've been "encouraging" it to break loose by tapping with a hammer here and there, and spraying penetrant liberally along the seams. After an hour of fiddling, it's still stuck on. Suggestions?

  • Never mind. I found two more bolts. They're kinda hard to see, and were buried under 75 years of crud. Once I get them out I'm sure it will just pop apart with a little persuasion.
