I recently bought a Ford tractor from my neighbour, he says it's a 2N. It has a generator and battery, which several sites insist make it a 9N. I need to clean up the rusty block as I can't read the SN. One guy says wire wheel is fine, another says it will obliterate the number. How do I exposed the number so I can determine exactly what I have?
It also has a front loader from Mid-Western Industries Inc of Wichita, KS, who the internet says has been dissolved, so I'm wondering how to get more info for that whole assembly.
