Picked up 2 N's the other day. 8n runs with low oil pressure and blow by, will get rebuilt later on.

The red one with no hood(9n/2n?) Has industrial or replacement block. Appears have been worked on sometime in the past, half decent paint job, good hood new gas tank etc. Kinda assuming the engine has been rebuilt.

Anyway, put a different starter and carb and coil on it, and it fired up and drove around the yard. Once in a while it would start knocking pretty loudly, then go away. Oil pressure gauge don't work and I don't have a separate one. Figure maybe the oil pump knocking? Haven't run it more then 15 mins yet.

So what are y'all using for Manuel oil pressure gauge on N's? Or should I just buy another dash gauge?

Also, won't go above probably 1/3rd throttle unless manually moving throttle at the carb, so maybe governor is involved? Haven't looked into that yet much.
