The batteries on my 1066 are shot (2 long 6 volts)would a 1000 cranking amp battery work instead of buying these expensive 6 volts that only last a couple of years

You did not state where you are located and the colder regions the lower temperatures need to be considered when changing the batteries. However, when you tractor was new the amps of 6 volt batteries was not all that high. Today a single new 12 battery can have more amps than two old 6 volts. You just need to be selective when you purchase the replacement. Here in N C, I have substituted a single 12 volt battery in all my 12 equipment that formerly had two batteries. I use Deka brand and I feel that these deliver the amps stated on the label. Never consider substituting car batteries for diesel tractor applications, you will only be disappointed. A single battery of high enough amperage will perform better for you than the original setup. Good luck.

I PUT ONE 8D BATTERYON A 966 AND PUT IT ONE THE SIDE OF THE FRAME USING ANGLE IRON AND DECK STEEL AND IT WORKS GREAT. IT IS ALSO EASY TO CHECK THE WATER AND CLEAN.

I had the same problem. I mounted an 8d battery to the side of the frame. This is the same battery used in trucks and large tractors and should be available for about $110. I used angle iron to make the mounts. It has worked very well.

Did you hook the 8 and 6 volt for 14 volts for more juice to the stsarter ? Will the charging system bring them back equally ? Or will it over charge the 6 ,and not bring back the 8 to an 8...Just wondering whether I should try it or not.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
