Hi Jason, I just discovered the different block casting on my s/n 292 when I installed the oil pan last week and saw that it had a sealing surface that was exposed on the front edges of the bellhousing. The pan came off a 9N of s/n 3000 vintage and was notched in the front. The original 292 pan (or the one that was on it) was broken at the front so I discarded it not thinking there would be any difference. As you note there are flanges on the flywheel side of the bellhousing which I plan to check against the flywheels for clearance. I took both flywheels off their respective engines around the same time, but believe the lighter came off 292. Am finding lots of little things hat are different on this tractor than on others only a few thousand units newer. I have a governor that uses four screws to hold it together with a gasketed face that is clearly an early unit compared to the normal 9N model, no telling how long these were supplied.
Thanks for the info,
