I've been using 8V batteries in my Ford tractors for years with no failures & only (1) headlite burnout . Did you tweak your VR for that extra needed from the genny ? Also be sure all contact points of your heavy cables are clean , shiny & brite . I also smear some dielectric grease on all my cable ends to prevent any corrosion . An 8V charge system gives much brighter lighting & faster start-ups , so don't give up now . How old is the battery ? Maybe give it an over nite trickle charge will spruce it up . Plus during cold weather , it helps to trickle charge it once in awhile . HTH ! God bless, Ken

" I've been using 8V batteries in my Ford tractors for years "

How many of those tractors are N's w/ front distributors? N's w/ side distributors?

Not all Ford tractor electrical systems are the same.
