RESTORATION CONTINUES ON THE 53 CA. 2 QUESTIONS I NEED ANSWERS FOR. I WILL BE CONVERTING THE TRACTOR TO 12 VOLT SYSTEM WITH GM 1 WIRE ALTENATOR. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON MOUNTING THE ALTENATOR TO THE TRACTOR. THERE SEEMS TO BE LITTLE ROOM BETWEEN THE MANIFOLD AND THE STEERING ARM. ALSO, THE STEERING COLUMN TUBE NEEDS REPLACING. IS THERE METAL TUBING SUCH AS CONDUIT (EMT) THAT WORKS. ALL SUGGESTIONS AND HELP ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

THANKS,

JAMES (FL)

My Dad has, we think, a '51 (4 digit ser. #) model CA. He converted it to 12V a few years back with no clearance problems. His steering is different than most pics I've seen though. This tractor has adjustable wide front axle, the hand operated clutch on the right rear axle indicating a CA model, but the connecting link, from the pitman arm, which points down, to the L-shaped steer arm at the left wheel, runs horizontal along bottom of engine with only 1 tie rod connecting the two wheels. Is this a model CA?

tractor originaly was a narrow front end and someone put a "B" front end on it. B has the gearbox with downward link, and L at the left front wheel. There were a few "adjustable" wid B built.

I used electrical conduit for the steering tube on my C. It's exactly the same size as the original, both ID and OD.

your right there quite possibly is not enough room for a gm internal regulated alternator, because of the steering arm for the narrow front, I tried this on my C and the alternator would not fit , ended up putting the external regulated alternator on and wiring up a regulator.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
