Battery strength

Is it possible for a battery from Farm & Fleet to not have sufficient power to turn over a WD. The battery is a few months old and fully charged. I have always used this model in my 8N with no problems, but someone told me I'd have better luck with a higher priced battery in the WD.

I use a battery from my lawnmower in my WC and CA all the time. I believe it"s a Group 26 with regular top terminals. Put a new one in the mower, use the old in the tractors.

A WD at 34HP will in fact turn over harder then an 8N will at 23HP but most any battery in the 600-700CCA should work just fine in either one and I have in fact used the same battery in many of my tractors from small like the 8N ford up to my bigger ones like say my Oliver Super 88. So your problem is most likely bad cables or some other thing like that

Joe is absolutely correct. A very high percentage of starting problems result from poor cables, cables that are too small, poor connections and bad grounds.

A good ground, big cables and clean connections play the biggest part with any 6 volt tractor

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
