I have a 6v pos ground WC backwards loader that I am switching to 12v pos ground. Other than the coil, alt., batt. and light bulbs this tractor has an ignition switch with a starter solenoid. My question is do I need to rewire anything with the switch and do I need a different solenoid?

your o.k.... but check the alternator. 99% are negative ground.

Forgot the say if your going with an alternator you have to switch the ground from + to - or your new alternator will not last a split second

IF you haven't already found it, there's a pretty good set of instructions and a wiring diagram for converting a Farmall M. The WC would have a virtually identical electrical system.

Better make that 12V Negative ground with the alternator.

No you do not have to do any thing else. Shoot you can keep that coil if you add a ballast resister like the O'Reilly's VR-1

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
