  • 1939 Trumpet change
  • Trying to figure out when the trumpet change on the '39 took place. I would have thought when they change center housing design but my # 1442 has the later '39 center housing but has the rounded trumpets at the 3pt lower pins. My later '39 #7587 has the squared off trumpet so the the change was made sometime inbetween. If you '39 owners have a serial number inbetween my numbers please let me know which one you have.

  • Redundant at this point but s/n 1604 has the rounded style, along with later style center. I assume the later style center is denoted by the top link attachment point.

  • My early 1939 Ford-Ferguson 9N, s/n *9N-653I*, is stored over in the barn at the farm so not accessible right now, so I don't know what I have. I was trying to find some pictures of my 9N that I might be able to help ID the trumpets with, but so far can't find any clear photos. Meanwhile, we have the early 9N MPC's here in our MANUALS -see LINK for the 1940 one. Trumpet p/n's 9N-4012 & 9N-4013 listed with suffix symbol dollar sign ($). Scroll down to Page 49 at the back, SYMBOLS, and it lists the parts that were documented with changes made and each symbol used defining serial numbers used on and when changed. Does this help?

  • The serial number when they changed is in the 1940 and 1941 parts book.

  • I'd say that unless MPC's state at what s/n changes were made, one can only speculate, especially with the early 9Ns. As 9N production began ramping up, many changes were made 'on the fly' and never documented in the parts books. Parts like the adjustable LH lift link; 6-Loop 32" rear rims; and aluminum hoods are examples. It is often quoted that the aluminum hoods were only used on the first 700/800 tractors and no breakpoint ever actually documented.
