  • 2N identification
  • A friend just bought a 2N which we decided to put in my yard (to save his marriage!).
    We know it is a 2N as it has the 2N mark on the Ford emblem, and oval type radial arms, 3 speed, etc.
    BUT it has an 8N engine *8N 62222*
    We are unsure of the 2N year.
    The only other identification mark is the transmission casting number. 9N 7 006 D

    I was wondering if this casting number can be decoded to give us the year of manufacture - Maybe 9N, 7 = 1947, 006=?? D = April??

    Any thoughts?

  • Re: 2N identification
  • Thanks guys for the info.

    No casting numbers on the axle, Front distributor (with some strange wood block modifications - have to look into that!), Sealed beam headlights.

    So 44-47. With the early 8N engine (5 digit SN) I was wondering if Ford would have put early 8N engines in late 2N tractors??

    The transmission casting number 7 006 makes since. The "D" might be a revision number!
    I remember in my old company (IR) our casting patterns would wear out and had to be repaired or replaced!

  • Re: 2N identification
  • That number is just casting number for the transmission case. The "base number" for
    Ford transmission cases is 7006.
    Many Ford tractors in the 9N,2N, and 8N series are found as a mix of parts from different models and years, as lots of parts are interchangeable.
    It probably has a later engine in it.
    Does it have a front or side mounted distributor?

  • 2Ns were mad from 1942 thru 1947. Some one replace the original engine with one out of an 8N.

    For more information on identifying your tractor see John Smith's web site.
