Is a Ford 9N a good tractor?
The short answer is yes. The 9N is one awful tractor to work compared to an 8N, NAA or later. Not only do you don’t get position control and live hydraulics like on the 8N, both the clutch and left wheel brake are on the left, meaning with the clutch depressed you can only use the right brake.

- 2—Turn the IDLE MIXTURE screw all the way in and then back out ONE turn from the bottom.
