heres the skinny on what you have.

Starter setup. if its a starter bolted onto the bellhousing under the left side frame rail its a Heisler setup. if it bolts on the fornt of the motor and has a gear on the crank pulley, i beleive those were sold by sear and roebuck. this style is very rare. IHC NEVER made a starter setup for the F-20 OR the F-30 period. Only F series with a factory supplied starter is the F-12/14

Alternators were not introduced until the '06 series in 1963

Lighting.......factory lighting kits were available from IHC at the factory for ALL F series tractors. If you ordered this kit it would have an 'inline' generator between the gov housing and the magneto. the magneto was moved farther back on the engine and had a special mount. Most after market companies used a generator that looks exactly like an H or an M. Hesiler made a bracket that bolted the generatoron the side of the head above #1 spark plug. there is another company that made brackets that bolt on the framerail and the generator mounted there, but i cant recall the name of the company.

No field 'changeover' or 'update' was offered for lighting. many time people would round up parts f H's or M's and use them just like whats on your tractor. its not correct, but it works and thats what matters i fyou want to use it and play with it.

hope this hseds a little light on your question
