Do I need to change the button on the box to start my B? I am not sure, I bought a B and have never owned a tractor before. I have been trying to get it started. I have the fuel system all set and the starter is rebuilt. It has been converted to 12V and points... I just cant get it to turn over unless I put cables from a booster right on the starter. Thats why I think I want to change the box with the push button. Where can I buy a starter button or complete box (the box that has the button and I guess a light switch. Help please

Joe, it could be the starter solenoid {button on the box}but more likely it`s a battery,or a bad connection at the batt. or the starter. The box is held on with two screws some times you can change them without removeing the starter. I hope this helps.KJM

You need to get a operators manual & a service manual.....then get a 12v diagram and trace the wires,to make sure it is correct....don't do any thing until you understand the system...Go over to the left side of this site page ...look under "RESEARCH & INFO" --- Click on "Articles" look for converting articles for 6v to 12v...any farmall article will work for you....

the B did not come with a push button starter. there was a long "rod" the goes up by the base of the steering column under the gas tank. you "push" the rod and it mechanically engages the starter. if you want that, you need a new mechanical switch mounted on the starter. if you want to use the push button, i would get a starter button at Auto Zone. You also would have a solenoid between the starter and the battery (two cables) and a smaller wire that goes to your starter button, right?? is the solenoid engaging when you push the button?

Mine has a rod that is pulled to activate the starter. I thought all B's could also be hand cranked. Of course, the 12V conversion may have messed all that up. Best to stay stock, I've found.

Today's Featured Article - Maintaining Rubber Tires - by Staff. The broad use of rubber tires on farm tractors and machinery has resulted in a great saving in both time and operating costs since the time of steel wheels. There are, however, certain basic fundamentals in the care of tires that should be followed carefully if the owner is to derive maximum benefit from his or her investment. First and most important is to maintain proper pressure for the work at hand. Your best guide to proper inflation is the operator's manual or instruction book tha ... [Read Article]
