Well, looks like you got a little hybrid there. Looks like original engine for this 8N bought the farm and they replaced it with an older model. This was vey common when people brought core in and didn't want to wait for all of machining work to be done. This is called a hybrid tractor. Functionally it will give you no trouble, they are essentially the same block. If you are into show, than serial numbers don't jibe and the value is diminished. Depends what you want to do with it and what makes you happy. Parts are equally available --- small difference in 8N engine for timing produced more power, but basically the same. According to your 9n serial number is should have been produced somewhere in mid 1945. You haven't mentioned the condition of the tractor --- but the price seems really nice depending on the condition of the tractor and of course the implements. Need more help? Just ask.

If you want more info or just to chat about these Ns and your purchase, you can contact me with your phone number and I can go over more of the details of this with you. I have restored quite a few N tractors and before this tractorforum.com site was changed on 9/15/03, I specialized completely in N-rebuilds, restorations, repair and history.

hope this helps,
Andy
