  • Learned something new today
  • The 9, 2, & 8 NAN tractors had a temperature gauge. I checked with New Holland and they don't have any in stock. I can't find a wiring diagram either. I did however find a drawing for the face plate.

  • The NAN tractor fuel burners had the temperature gauge so the operator knew when the tractor was warm enough to switch over from gasoline needed to start the tractor to tractor fuel which was the primary fuel. It would have been the bulb and capillary tube style gauge. Have read that most NAN tractor were exported to other countries.

  • Yes, the temperature gauge was used on the 9NAN; 2NAN; and 8NAN tractors only. The TEMPERATURE GAUGE was fitted on the RH lower dash panel, at the 5 O'Clock position below the OIL PRESSURE GAUGE. The original drawing for the dash shows the hole location cutout with: "NOTE - TO MAKE 9N-AN AND 2N-AN ADD THIS HOLE". The original drawing for the gauge faceplate, 9NAN-10888, shows: "WARNING: ONLY USE HEAVY FUEL WHEN NEEDLE IS ON THE GREEN". These drawings show the temp gauge was released in July, 1941 on the TVO/Kerosene burning NAN models only.

  • ALSO
  • WE have the 9NAN Manual and the 8NANManual in our library. The AN models used a special manifold and the vaporizer unit. The -AN models were almost all exported to Europe and Australia.

  • I'm trying to reach Alan to see if he or his friends across the pond have a kerosene tractor so they can send me a picture of the dash.

  • Check the manuals and you will find the operators supplement for the 8NAN. Shows it all.

  • Probably was not electric. Just sensing bulb/tube/indicator.
