  • 9N Oil Canister
  • I'm just finishing up rebuilding my 9N. I'm puzzled with the Canister flow thru. I understand the oil flows from the block, into the bottom of the Canister thru the tube in the middle and evidently thru two (2) holes in the tube. These two holes are only 1/32" ⏀ or smaller is this right ? Seems small to me to get any type of flow.

  • Your 9N engine is equipped with a so-called bypass oil filter. Only a small part of the pressurized oil if filtered.

    Such systems were common on both agricultural and automotive engines until the mid/late 1950s.
