Ford 9N Tire Pressures
|Steve Bird||This should be an easy one for you guys. How many psi in 9N front and rear tires? I can't find/read the numbers on the tires if they are present. Thanks, Steve
|mark sr||On my NAA, I run 12 -13 psi in the rear tires and 35 psi in the front, but I do have a loader installed so you'd probably want a few pounds less in the front.
|Bob G||I agree with Mark. about 30 on one with no loader. I find it interesting to note that neither the FO-4 service manual nor my 8n owners manual have any info about tire pressure.
|Jim Loveridge||The owners manual for the 9N / 2N states 26 psi in the front and 12 in the rear. Like Bob says I've never found in in the service manuals or in the NAA owners manual.
|Steve Bird||Yes, I could not find it either. My front tires say do not exceed 35 psi when seating bead, but that is it so I filled them to 35. Rear tires had about 5 psi when I put on some brand new chains and the chains were just hanging off of them. I filled them to 30 psi and the chains are now tight like they should be. I guess I should let a little air out?
|mark sr||@ 30 psi in the rear do you get any traction? I don't think my tractor would make it up the hill with that much air pressure and I have 30+ gallons of fluid in each rear tire. I'd let all but 12 psi or so out of your rear tires.
|Ed||i always deflate my tires then pump them back up when after chains are on...makes them easier to install,,,if it cant pull a hill with 30lbs & chains on..i would have to see what the heck is wrong with my tractor...should be easier with chains on going uphill
I am with you. I've always struggled, cussed, pounded, and cussed again to get my chains on using every hammer and tool in the tool box. Putting them on with 5 psi in the tires and then inflating was a piece of cake. It was an accident, but I wish I'd thought of that 20 years ago! hehehehehe I haven't plowed yet, but tractor went up the hill no problem with the tires at 30psi.
|Steve Bird||Finally got to plow snow with the new tire chains and tire pressures and man what a difference. First time in 20 years I've been able to plow up my driveway and the tires didn't even spin. With the old chains I spun constantly and always got stuck at the pinnacle of my hill and had to use the brakes to get up. Now it just marches right up the hill!
