dollarbill, thank you for posting that picture of your tractor. the only wiring that is messed up is where the ignition switch should be. I missed that hole the switch mounts in looking at yesterday. I was looking for it on the side like the jubilee. Its hard to find pics of the dash area that are closeups from when i tried to google the dash.
I am missing the proof meter and i am not totally sure what the switch that is there goes too. Someone filled that hole in with a piece of sheetmetal and installed a rocker switch I will have to trace the wires too.

I will take pics of the generator tomorrow. It looks just like the original 6v gen but is marked 12v. It has one bigger wire on the back and 2 smaller wires on the top.

I did not get to work on it today like i wanted too. I stayed up too late researching things about the tractor and lift and got a late start. I did crank it but i noticed in the daylight that the fuel line is cracked and leaking right on the exhaust manifold. Maybe i dislodged some rust yesterday on in it when i disassembled the fuel shutoff valve.
I tried to read the s/n on it but cannot see anything there. Its does appear to have late 52 lift arms on it but i have to doublecheck that against the pic where i saw that.
