Eastgate Shopping Center had one of those for years, they used it to plow the snow off the sidewalks. Whenever someone says 'tractor', that's the picture I get in my head.

I don't have any 9N stuff. What are you looking for?

As far as the hydraulic/transmission oil I wouldn't be at all concerned running a Universal Tractor Fluid (UTF) as long as it met the Ford spec. At work we run UTF in the 762B scraper, and haven't had a problem yet. My dad's newer Ford 4600, TW10, and TW20 all run the M2C134D hy/trans.

If you are going to work on the 9N yourself a good investment would be the repair manual. The owner's manual and the the parts manual would be wise to acquire as well. I am pretty sure they are available as reprints from the yesterday's tractor website. Your tractor has been converted to 12 volt, so the wiring information wouldn't be 100% correct, but it's nice to have guidance when you have questions.

Years ago I picked up a 1952 Oliver OC3-31 (31" from center of track to center of track) that was used to plow sidewalks. It had rubber pads bolted to the grousers (factory). It looked like this only not as nice- http://tractors.wikia.com/wiki/Olive...-_IMG_2920.jpg

That was a few years ago. My dad dealt with Bob at Van Paemels when he bought his TW 20. Ray and Ron Tosch may have parts for you as well. They are in Capac.
