  • Shift Inter lock
  • I have a 1946 2n and i found out that the shift inter lock PT# 9N7229B is broken. the tractor still works and runs but some times its hard to start. Looking to get another one but cant find one cheep. Roberts has one for $85.00. All tho it seams to be the only one out there this might be my best bet. looking to see if anybody has one cheaper. I don't have it out at the moment and was thinking of welding it but if i can find one in one piece.
    Thanks Rich

  • ROBERTS -USED PART
  • Rich-
    OK, I just looked at Roberts part and noticed it says USED and part will have minor wear so they don't make it new as I suspected -you will get a used part taken from another tractor which is fine but you could go to a boneyard and find one yourself.

  • HiYa Rich-
    have you verified it is broken or is it just worn. That part is just a plate and could be remade by a shop. I don't see that part separately by Carpenter but has the correct pushbutton switch. Does it just click when pressed? I've never bought anything from Roberts so don't know if why they would have one and nobody else not. Roberts is just a supplier, Carpenter actually makes many repop OEM parts. I'd do some more investigating before you shell out $85.

  • Hi Tim

    Yes its broken. I tried to post a picture but it looked to confusing just wanted to get it out and see what people said. I can see the break looking through the fill port and it seams to be a common place. I will look up Carpenter site don't think I've been to this one before and cant hurt to look. As i said the tractor still runs and starts. Just finding it interesting and fun to work on them.

    Thanks Rich

  • Send me a picture in an email and I can post it. I looked for new parts this AM at Carpenter, Steiner, and Just 8Ns and saw none so you'll have to settle for a used part and take your chances on how worn it is too. Ebay too may have shifter covers only so look there as well. The part is stamped steel and only Ford would have the original stamping dies if Carpenter didn't buy them already.
