I am in need of a Farmall C electrical drawing. I have searched this site for quite awhile. The forum posts that address this are littered with broken links to what must have been what I need, years ago. It looks like John T in Indiana may have posted this several times a long time ago, but again, the links are broken.

This tractor belongs to my dad and I am traveling to see him over the holidays. He's complaining of charging problems and other intermittent electrical problems. I'm trying to educate myself a little before I get there.

His Farmall C has a distributor, a three position light switch and a four terminal voltage regulator. It remains as 6v positive ground, as originally equipped. S/N 178305 (1951?) Casting number 1815.

I appreciate any help.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeThanks to everyone that has replied. I have a new drawing from Bob and lots of direction as to where to start in my troubleshooting. AND, I know what year this tractor was manufactured.

An awesome community! You'll probably hear from me again in a week or so, once I get to Maryland and give this tractor a good lookover.
Again, thank you all very much.

You have a 1953 Super C If it makes any difference.

Wow! A big thank you to everyone that has commented. I can use all the help I can get, especially going in blind.

I am a medical equipment service engineer, so I think I have the skills to figure it all out (fingers crossed here!). I was hoping that I could get a diagram so that I could check all the connections while I'm there. I'll be sure to clean everything up. I may opt to buy a new wiring harness, just to give my Dad some piece of mind. I'm sure identifying that will be yet another chore.

Also, believe it or not, this tractor has been in the family it's entire life! Handed down a couple of times, but in the same family. My dad claims that everything is original except for the generator and the voltage regulator. The generator housing is original, but it was rebuilt about two years ago. He purchased a new voltage regulator at the same time. Maybe from Steiner. Not 100% sure. The charging circuit worked well for a time after the generator was rebuilt and the voltage regulator was replaced. I'm certain that I am next in line for this hand-me-down!

Again, thank you all for the info. I feel like I'm in good hands headed into this project. I am more than certain that my laptop will be setup near this tractor while I'm working on it so that I can refer back here. Some great stuff.

If it hasn't been messed with (and probably even if it has) go over all the connections and make sure they are clean and tight. Pay attention to the ground connections, particularly the voltage regulator. Check for frayed insulation on the wiring. If it works some of the time, chances are the wires are going to the right places. They just need some clean-up.

Intermittent charging could also mean the generator needs some attention (new brushes and armature clean-up) or the points inside the regulator need attention (light filing with a point file, NOT abrasive paper/cloth).

Bob M's diagrams are very accurate and easy to follow. I am confidant that he will have one that shows your tractor the way it came from the factory, however, that tractor left the factory more than 65 years ago and who knows how many changes and modifications might have been made in that time.

I've worked on old tractors that I had to go through the electrical system and diagram out how it was wired before I could start troubleshooting it. You may need to go that route.

Oldiron29, that's the problem. There seems to be thousands of diagrams, but none of them seem to match what I have. The ones that make any sense are re-drawn, but simply do not match what I have. Any many are not labeled, so I don't know if it has anything at all to do with my Dad's tractor. Keep in mind, the tractor is 700 miles away so I don't have the option of comparing several drawings to the tractor. At least not yet. I was hoping to get more information before I left for the holidays.

Thanks for your response.
