Need to replace 6 volt battery on a 51' Case VAC. Will replaceing it with a new 8 volt battery cause any problems with the original 6 volt system or should I stay with a 6? Can the 8 volt battery be charged with a 6 or 12 volt, 10 amp. charger?

Stick with the 6 volt battery or switch it over to 12 volts and be done with it. At best an 8 volt battery is a BANDADE fix for other problems and can be hard to recharge since a 12 volt charger puts out to much and a 6 volt one not enough. Plus you would need to do work on the 6 volt system to get it to keep an 8 volt battery charged

Going to leave it as it was with the 6 volt because it charges as it should. Thanks again for all the wisdom, Clay.

Yucky bandaid fixes.. akin to bailing wire, duct tape and jb weld.

Best answer is to repair / repalce aprts so that the oem 6v system works like it was designed, from the factory.

When I was a kid and all systems were 6V (telling my age now) Dad always ran 8V batteries. Tweaked the VR to charge about 9V and we never had problems. Engines always started fast, bright lights, etc. I would say go for it, just remeber to tweak the VR up.

Installing an 8v is the best thing I could"ve done with my Ford tractor . The lights are so much brighter & the starting is so much faster . The only thing is that you should take you genny & Vr to a repair shop & have them checked out to be sure it"s putting out enough currant . Then have the VR tweaked to put 8v back into your battery .I"ve ran 8v in my tractyor now for 6 years . The first 8v lasted me 5 yrs . In that time one headlite burnt out . So I"d say go for it . Good luck & God bless . Ken

12V charger will charge it, but you have to watch it carefully to make sure you don't boil the cells dry.

The whole experience can be marred if one moves too fast and makes too many assumptions that they can just use "as is" some parts they should be closely scrutinizing and possibly attended to. In such cases, rework makes what could have been a fun project turn into an irritant or even a nightmare. Minor Irritants To give you an example of an minor but irritating proble ... [Read Article]
