  • 2N fenders
  • I have just bought a 1942 2N and the left fender looks to have a factory hole towards the front. Is it possible that the fenders are reversed? I thought maybe the hole
    could be for the work light on the right side. One other issue is the empty holes in the dash and steering column. Does anyone have a picture of a proper 42 dash layout?

  • Thanks everyone for your input. I am slowly getting this thing sorted. The #2 hole under the dash looks like it was made by a woodpecker. Maybe some previous owner wanted the ignition switch there.

  • Here is a picture of a 1940 9N. 2N will be the same except there is no ignition light.

    Ammeter is on the left. Oil pressure is on the right.

  • HiYa Harold-
    LH dash, early 9N as shown, has pushbutton starter at top upper, lower LH under AMMETER has the Ignition "ON" lamp and a hole for a light switch. RH dash, Oil Gauge; Choke lever & knob; Ignition Key Switch. Lower Steering Box has a Left & Right cast boss with tapped holes that the battery hold down bolts secure to from the battery clamp behind dash. Here is a photo of Barry's dash. Holes #2 and #4 require ID’g. I suspect #2 is someone’s addition for a key switch, it was not as original. What is the cast boss & hole (#4) on the RH bottom steering box for shown about 6:00 O'Clock?


    Item #1 is Red Ignition Lamp, light switch to the right. #3 & #5 are the tapped bosses on steering box for the battery hold-down bolts from behind.

  • The number 4 hole is for driving out the pin in the throttle linkage base so the lever can be removed.

  • Hole #2. That is where the key switch was on my 1940 9N. I will have to think about the #4 hole. Could it be access to remove the bolt on the throttle linkage?

  • See LINK for info on ID'g model number by year. The Ford 9N & 2N fenders, p/n 9N-16312 are identical for RH and LH sides. There was no 'hole' for a worklight. An Implement Lamp would not be introduced until 1949 and then only an accessory. Fenders were bolted and riveted on. Lighting kits were never a Rouge Factory installed item. Lights were always dealer optional accessories. Lighting kits included two fender brackets, one LEFT and one RIGHT, two Headlights, and one Taillight plus wiring and hardware. The LH fender bracket held the Taillight, the RH fender bracket was to use the RH headlight to mount if you wanted a worklight. We can't tell you what your extra 'empty holes' in the dash are without a picture. Can you post? Email me if you want. Dash has an AMMETER and Ignition "ON" lamp on LH, an OIL GAUGE and choke lever on RH side; with ignition key switch on LH steering column. Early 9N's had the starter button on LH dash and key switch on RH dash panel. Fender light brackets were installed using three fender bolts.
