'56 Ford 650 headlights

I just bought my first tractor. It is a '56 ford 650. It came without headlights. I bought some generics at the auto store. My question is how do I wire these lights? I have the manual, but I (I am a novice) can not follow it. I see a switch on the side panel but it has wires coming out of it already and they lead to other devices. The lights I bought have one wire coming out which I have extended. But what do I connect them to? I also bought a two pole toggle and I am wondering how to wire that as well. Finally, I bought a light for the rear and would like to wire that too? Can anyone help?

Hi JM, I have a 55 650 and I love it. Welcome to the club. If your tractor is still 6 volt the lights should be also 6v. Check that before installing. I believe these have just one wire coming out of them which would go to the power wire connection at your light switch which is low and on the right of your instrument area. The light otherwise just grounds to the metal where it sits in position. Make sure it touches bare metal somewhere. I'll check everything out on mine today and may reply later if there is something else you need to know.john

I have the ford 650 grill and it is in fair shape. No dents or bent slats. The paint is rough. I also have the original head lights and they are in the same condition. One of the lights has a little dent on the lens cover that holds the light bulb in. Are these of interest to anyone and what would they be worth?
