  • 9N 546
  • They're still out there. Drove 8 hours yesterday to pick up a 1939 9n Serial number 546. I wasn't looking for another tractor when I stumbled across an ad, in an unlikely place, Craigslist and the ad had been posted for 23 days. Needless to say I am very happy to have it.

  • Nice find. I'm sure that once you decide how much you want to do to get back to original, there are parts around the country that can be purchased.

  • Very nice. Never see any low numbers in our area. The farms around here trade their mules for John Deere Tractors. I think they got 600 for the mules on trade.

  • The MUFFLER COVER/SHIELD seems to be the most 'universal' missing part!!

  • we're not sure when the muffler shield first appeared. Early 16mm movies of the June 29, 1939 9N demo don't show it. They do show the tool box mounted on the back of seat. There were 77 units built before production for testing and demos. Heck one photo shows chrome hubcaps!

  • Very nice. I am envious of the dash! Mine was replaced at some point.

  • Nice find Kirk! A lot of history in that tractor with all those non correct year parts.

  • Re: 9N 546
  • Great find, Kirk! More pictures when you can. Maybe it is a swap out job? You know what early parts it should have.

  • Re: 9N 546
  • Yes Tim things will have to be switched out.

  • Re: 9N 546
  • What I meant Kirk was that maybe the engine was swapped out? I think I see a snap-in battery cover, 32 rears and hats, Donaldson air cleaner, and ribbed fenders but most other parts suggest a later 9N model. I'm only guessing but the rad cap looks like it is for the pressurized radiator too and the 16" front wheels I'm unsure of when they were first options. I also thought they were aftermarkets anyway. The later drawbar and hanger means some type of bracket would have to be retro-fitted unless it has an 8N rear end. What are your plans?

  • Re: 9N 546
  • No I don't believe the engine has been swapped out just a lot of other stuff. Trans and rear appear to be correct. Here is the dash number and trans number and drawbar. Drawbar is retro fit Old Hokie style

  • Re: 9N 546
  • Interesting - where was that thing located? I think I only made 10 of those drawbar adapters.

  • I picked this tractor up in the Finger Lake area in New York state. Once I take it off I'll post some better photos.You are not Producing these anymore? I just gave a guy your contact info.

  • Re: 9N 546
  • I purchased enough of the laser cut pieces to make 10 brackets. Interest wasn't real strong and when those were sold I did not buy more. I have recently had inquiries and am considering ordering some more. If I do the new ones will likely be bent on a press brake and bolt together rather than welded. Too hard to get the welded ones to fit correctly.

  • Re: 9N 546
  • I have a tractor with the same front rims on 9N 2N hubs. I think an aftermarket upgrade. The tractor has parts from before and after it was built. Congratulations on your find. But I think you should sell it. To me!

  • Re: 9N 546
  • Now the 64,000 question. Does it have an aluminum hood?

  • Re: 9N 546
  • No, not that lucky. It's back changed out to steel hood and doglegs.Do you happen to have an extra one laying around? LOL
