  • 1941 9N key
  • Greetings all,
    I just inherited a 1941 Ford 9n tractor. I'm very excited to learn about it and begin a restoration. I don't have the key, but the tractor is in running condition. My neighbor and best friend recently passed away. He often used his 9N to repair my driveway. His Family wanted me to have the tractor. (What an honor). I was wondering if the keys from that era are a universal fit or do I need to get a whole new ignition switch?
    Many thanks,

  • You can get most all your parts at JUST8NS -click on the link to get to the correct 9N key switch. You get two keys with it and will fit as opposed to any universal gizmo. As a newbie too, I'd advise you get copies of the Essential Manuals. We have all the 9N & 2n manuals in our library for free download. There's much to know whether you are going to do a full restoration or just a refurbishing job. Have you any tractor experience prior? My email is open if you want to chat offline.

  • Universal, unless someone changed out the ign switch. Then you still have a chance the key might work. I have that situation with two machines in my yard and one key.
    I have a new ign switch on order.
    Restoration being replacing worn parts and a $10 switch can get worn out.

    Despite advancing age my reading comprehension and critical analysis skills seem to be holding up.
