I just finished the 12 volt conversion on my Case LA. The repair shop
replaced the 6 volt fields with 12 volt fields. It is an Auto-Lite generator
and the 12 volt fields came from Ace and is part number 145 from them. This
generator is the same as used on SC and DC tractors, so this may be of use
to some others. The original regulator was used as mounted on the generator
and adjusted to 13.6 volts, so installation uses the same wire to the
ammater. I replaced the ammeter while I was doing the change. The battery is
a group 31 with center posts and replaces the original group 4, 6 volt
battery. This tractor has been built up with 4 7/8 sleeves and LP head for
about 90 horsepower, so the original 6 volt was not up to the task of
starting the engine. Cranks over very good now.

26.6 volts? I'll bet it cranks! What does that do to a 12 volt battery? I hope that was a typo.

Yep, sure was a typo. Guess I should have done a better job proofreading. Should have been 13.6 volts.

Today's Featured Article - Uncle Cecil's Super A Lives Again - by Mike Purcell. A week or so out of most of my childhood summers was often spent with my Uncle Cecil and Aunt Sissie in the small East Texas town of Maydelle on their 80 acre farm. Some of my fondest memories of these visits are those of learning to drive a tractor at the helm of Uncle Cecilís 1948 Farmall Super A. Uncle Cecil was the second owner of this wonderful little tractor, but it was almost as though he had adopted an infant. The original owner was a man from Minnesota who bought her from a local dea ... [Read Article]
