  • Extra long axel support on 2n wartime model
  • Good morning. I have a 1943 2n serial # 111677 and need to remove the axle pin and bushing as I am returning it to a wartime model. Finally got all the parts to do this. I had a loader on it so first step is the axle pin. I have been searching the archives with really not much help in removel but came across one post from Jim UT about a exrta long axle support. I have this support and on the engine side I also have a slotted opening with little pockets that may be for the crank to rest after starting. I was wondering does that slotted piece have to come out to get the bushing and pin out. The post was from some time ago so the pictures were not available. My question is, is there a trick to removing the pin and bushing does it come out the front, the back????? Can I even get a pin??? All the pins I have seen have the flange on it. Thanks for any help..

  • Re: Extra long axel support on 2n wartime model
  • I am not following your description. The starter-less wartime model used a longer (~8"-9") axle pivot pin that fit the standard 9N axle support and was retained by a large hex head set screw installed vertically in the top front of the axle support. The pin had a recessed cross on the crankshaft end that was used to retain and store the hand crank when not in use. It is a one piece casting and cannot be "disassembled". The hand crank had a compression spring and washer arrangement in the middle of the shaft that was used to "clamp" the crank in those slots for storage. To remove the pin you simply loosen the set screw and pull it out from the front or if it is stubborn drive it out from the back.

  • So sorry for the confusing description, I didn't know the pin was attached to the standard 9n axle support. I got the set screw out by drilling and rethreading. So the bushing is the only part that can be replaced??? The pin cannot??? Thanks for you expertise.

  • Re: Extra long axel support on 2n wartime model
  • No - still some confusion:

  • The bushing is in the axle - not the the support. It is easily replaced
  • The pin can be removed from the support by pulling/driving it out. It can be replaced if you had another but they are rare birds.
  • The pin itself is a solid one piece casting

    Post a picture of what you have and what you are trying to accomplish

  • Here is what the entire assembly looks like minus the axle and set screw. So what of this do you have and what are you trying to do?

  • I think I got it. Can't post a picture not too computer smart. I was going to replace bushing and pin but as you explained the pin is a one piece cast and probably won't be able to find one. I will just replace the bushing. I was confused on the pin itself as I didn't see any pictures of how the 2n pin looked, didn't know that the whole 8", 9", came out in one piece, but with your knowledge it is explained perfect. Thank you for your time, much appreciated.....
