 Re: WD 6VOLT TO A 12 VOLT SYSTEM in reply to JOHN, 04-12-2002 07:19:20  
I used an Alternator from an old '66 Ford...w/ reg... used the pulley from the Generater on the Alt.. left the Fan Off...otherwise it get's too much chaf in it... Radiator fan blows enough air thru it anyway... Used a ballast resister on the coil, changed the light bulbs to 12v. Used original generater Mount, too...Regulator is mounted on the Battery Box front....

Too often we forget the tremendous resources available to us right on this "Yesterdays Tractors" site. Go to the left; click on "Articles", then select "Maintenance and Mechanical Information". There are at least two articles on the subject. A) Converting your tractor from 6V to 12V B) Recomendations for 12V conversions.

the 6 volt startere will work with 12 volts. if you have a magnito. it will be o.k. if you have a distributor you will need a 12 volt coil or a dropping resistor for the 6 volt coil. the simpliest way to install 12 volts, is to go to Auto Zone and buy a Delco alternator with an internal voltage regulator (1975 chevy truck). You will need to build or buy a bracket to mount it. The alternator can be purchased for $35-$40. Make sure the two terminals on the side are in line like this (- -) that means it is internal regulator. If it is (l l) like this, it is the old style prior to 1975 and needs an external voltage regulator like a generator. If you go ahead and get this far, ask again for a print on the wiring.

Today's Featured Article - The Mud Daubers and the Old John Deere - by Jon Zehnder. I have a 1941, John Deere Model A tractor I have owned for about a year and a half. This is my first (in case my wife reads this, "FIRST") tractor and it has been a learning experience. After considerable advise and assistance from local tractor nuts and the forums of Yesterday’s Tractors, I had finally got it running pretty well. I have tuned it up, overhauled the carburetor, installed a borrowed, rebuilt magneto, installed a new Power-Trol, patched the radiator, installed new front wheels a ... [Read Article]
