The serial numbers on the Ford 9N, 2N, and 8N tractors are stamped on the left side (sitting in tractor seat) )of the engine block, near the top edge of the block, behind the oil filter. They are not stamped very deep (or straight) and may be obscured by paint. The lower-case letter "b" was used for the number "6", and an upper-case letter "I" for the number "1".
Serial numbers are ALWAYS stamped. (Any numbers and letters that are raised, or cast into the part, will be either part numbers or casting numbers.) Serial numbers are used to determine year of manufacture. Check below for serial number chart.
Serial numbers are stamped in the format "9Nxxxx" for 2N and 9N
tractors, and "8Nxxxxx" for 8N tractors. All 2N tractors used 9N
serial numbers. A star or a diamond is stamped before and after the serial
number, with diamonds only appearing only on late 8N tractors. This denotes
N-series tractors did not have a separate transmission or differential serial number.
Exceptions: Serial numbers beginning with 9NAN or 8NAN denote kerosene burning tractors. The 9NBN prefix denotes industrial tractors. The BNO25 and BNO40 prefixes were used on MotoTug tractors. Engines removed from combines or power units, and used as replacements in tractors, may have "Ford Industrial Engine" tags, or "Axxx-xx", or similar prefixes.
