  • 501 is right in the number range for an aluminum hood.
    Good to know that they are still out there...
    Yep, take a magnet with you...

  • Yes, the first 700-800 (or thereabouts) 9Ns had the aluminum hood but, not all still have them. The aluminum was prone to cracking easily and thus replaced with the steel hoods once they (Ford) got the stamping dies corrected and parts in production. I've seen a few low 9N s/n's with steel hoods.

  • I just looked in the registry on this site and they show some Aluminum and some steel right through the 500 number range. I wonder how many Aluminum hoods are laying in a barn or an old scrap heap somewhere right now...

  • S/N 501 is not listed here but as I said in my previous post, it is listed in the Ford/Fordson Collectors List of early 9N owners and I posted the information with it -owner, location, et al. Bear in mind that one reason we cannot locate a lot of the parts used on the early 9Ns is because once they were replaced, chances are they ended up in the scrap heap as WWII saw the US get involved and material restrictions imposed on all US manufacturers and recycling became prevalent. Copper, aluminum, zinc, brass, and other precious materials were to be dedicated to war time ordance only. Starters, generators, (copper), aluminum hoods, et al once scrapped out got melted back down and recycled. Also, it wasn't just Ford that restrictions were imposed on -it was ALL US manufacturing companies. Heck, even Hershey Chocolate suspended making their KISSES so the aluminum they used to wrap them in could be used in airplanes.

  • Re: Aluminum hood 9N 501
  • Upon further review, I believe this 9N-501 s/n is 99.98% legit as s/n is listed on the F/FCA log of early 9N owners. Also shown is: "Schemoine G, (owner) Pamona, IL - ldr/trks used to feed cattle".

  • Nice to see that are still out there. Maybe someone will pick it at auction and sell it a week later from his "private collection".

  • Oftentimes fellas mistake part numbers for serial numbers. 9N-501 would be the hydraulic lift top cover, but don't think they had a cast raised or recessed part numbers on them -I'll have to look at mine next time I'm at farm/barn. The aluminum hood would be interesting to verify as well. Anyone near the auction site and owns a magnet???
