  • 1940 9N I Think.
  • Hello all:

    This is my first time posting. I have what I think is a 1940 9N according to the number on the engine block. I am however, not sure it is ALL 1940. Would this be the appropriate place to post some pics for help in positively identifying my machine?

  • Like to see photos. With these old machines lots of changes could have occurred. Still possible to find one that is mostly original. Study John Smith's web site to help identify your tractor.

  • Wow. I looked at the Smith website, goodness it has a bunch of info. Thanks for the tip. Turns out it is a '42 2N. That explains some of the parts that seemed out of place.

  • 1940 9N. The machine that my wife found and started me on this trip. It sold off long ago and at times, wish I had it back. Then again... Well, as this is your first machine, just remember in the future, each implement deserves it's own machine especially as this saves the time of swapping back and forth. You should never have more implements than machines. That means I am missing at least 1/2 dozen more machines around here.
    Should the wife balk at the idea of multiple machines, invite her to swap implement's next time and save you the difficulty because it is easy enough to do, No?
    Good luck on the new machine. Better luck on the next one. Just remember, the more, the merrier.

  • Thanks for the info. I think I have my question answered for now. I'm from Northern Colorado, I'd like to find a club locally.

  • Can't help you on a club in Colorado, I live in the western foothills of the Adirondack Mt's in New York.
