    ford 9n engine block

    Ive been looking for an inexpensive tractor to do some work at my place and came across a 9n with loader for $700 but it has a cracked block. Said it ran good when parked, so i assume it froze and cracked the block. Would like anyone's opinion on if the bkocks can be welded, or how difficult it would Be And how expensive a replacement would be. Thanks for any help.

    It would depend on where the block was cracked. If externally you might be able to fix it with JB Weld. Just groove out the crack and drill a hole at each end to keep it from cracking further. I have one i repaired a few years ago like this and it's still working. replace blocks are easy to find and might be cheaper than having it professionally welded. I have had and seen some nasty looking welding jobs on some old tractors that are still running today.
