You do know, don't you, that the 9N came first, released in June, 1939, then the 2N in late October, 1942, then the 8N in July, 1947, but was the new model year for 1948. Since the engine blocks were used from 39 thru 50, they could be swapped out if an original got damaged/cracked? There were many "mutts' made like that. You can't beat free. Realize, too, that just because you installed a 6V battery doesn't make it wired correct for 6V/POS GRN, right? You can find the HOW-TO's document on how to post pictures on the forums.
