Does anyone out there know if anyone is manufacturing a copy of the KW lighting that was optional on the unstyled A's. I don't suppose any of the originals are still around to be had.

Yes, that is the one I was asking about. Great looking tractors in the pics. I like the look and would like to run across a system for my tractor. Any ideas where to start?

There doesn't seem to be much info out there as a lot people I contacted didn't know what I was talking about. Two Cylinder magazine knew nothing about them. K-W Ignition Company used to be huge (they made most of the buzz box coils as well as magnetos for Ford and others back in the day) but went out of business years ago. Some of the parts, such as the can assemblies, turn up on Ebay occasionally and I have seen some pieces for sale on this site as well. Some of the small pieces (connectors, bulbs, wire, etc) I got from antique car restoration suppliers.

Yep, There are still some around. I have one set of the K-W Light Equipment on a 1934 A and another set on a 1935 B (pics below). On the 34 A the dynamo runs off of a split pulley on the open fan shaft via a leather belt. On the later A and B's the dynamo is run via a v belt and split pulley mounted right behind the fan blade.
All of the parts are listed in the John Deere 45R parts manual.

1934 Model A



1935 Model B

My dad had a light on our old 1938 G for night plowing. I never saw it on the tractor but the light wa very large, abput 5 to 6 inches across the lens and seems like where was a "knob" on the back of the light. He ran a generator off the steering column and battery. Is that the light you are thinking of?
