 Re: Re: electric start for C in reply to CHALMERSBOB, 09-29-2002 08:09:27  
Thanks alot ChalmersBob and Rod. My C does have pieces under the steering tube for the crank. It also has threaded holes and notches in the hood for lights. The toolbox is the long kind, so someone made a battery box out of angle iron and bolted it to the side of the toolbox. I think that from what you guys are saying is that my C came from the factory with a starter hole in the torque tube with a cover on it. The starter and homemade battery box was added later. So if I get the correct toolbox and batterybox, I should be able to put lights and generator on this tractor and it would be correct as far as anyone would know. This C also has the tall 22" stack for the air intake, so I know the steel wheels are correct as the tall stacks only came on the steel wheel models. Can you guys tell me why the tall stack only came with steel wheels? Thanks again!!

It sure looks like your C came from the factory the same as my B. Not surprising during the war years. Most likely it came from the factory with a blanked starter hole. The long toolbox would be the deciding feature for me...must have been a crank-start from the factory and electric was added later. Kinda odd though that whoever did the add-on that they did not also add the generator at the same time. You will need to get two brackets to mount the generator since you probably don't already have them. Plus you may or may not have the proper wiring harness and correct switchbox (with ammeter and special light switch) mounted on the steering column support.

That's an interesting bit of trivia about the taller air intake. I always wondered why mine seemed quite a bit taller than others I have seen. I would be interested in the actual reason why also...I cannot make the connection with steel wheels. You must also have the extended fenders like my B. See picture at link. It is my understanding that this type of fender was unique to the steel-wheel models, common during the war years.
