First, not all I&T F-04 Manuals are the same so Page 18 will vary what is on it. Mine shows the 9N/2N Steering Gear. You need to understand the differences between the starter and the generator. The generator is mounted on the RH side of the engine, ahead of the carburetor, has a pulley with a fan belt fastened on, and powers the water pump as well as charging the battery. On all 9N, 2N, and 8Ns, the starter is on the LH side of the engine. ALL 9N and 2N starters use no solenoid. They only have 1-Wire connected. All 9N’s, after s/n 12500, and all 2Ns use a 1-wire/3-Brush generator. ALL 9Ns, after s/n 12500, and ALL 2Ns use the round can cutout circuit mounted on the lower steering box on the back of the dash panel. There is a starter switch push button mounted on the top of the shifter cover at the base of the steering column. Do not confuse this starter switch/button with a starter solenoid. Remember, all 9N and 2N models do not use a starter solenoid. Here are some manual scans and photos to help you visualize things better.
