We know the 9N-400-B was the optional plastic (soybean)seat, discontinued sometime in 1940. We know the 9N-400-D is the flip-up 8N style. Where does the "C" come in and what was riveted? Was it the large center support washer? There were no MPC's during the war years. There's no '43, '44' or '45 MPC. There is a '43 Price List but it is essentially only the parts used on the 2N warhorse. In '43 there was the MPC/Price List for the Moto-Tug but those used their own special outsourced padded seat. In the lime-green "Ford-Ferguson Service Manual for Owners & Mechanics" from 1943, on page 6, an overhead drawing view outlining maintenance points, clearly shows a 7-hole seat. Like I said, it is only a drawing not an actual tractor. Wish someone with a set of 9N blueprints would chime in...
