All I have for battery charging is a 12 volt "trickle"
charger.

Will I hurt anything on my 6 volt Farmall H if I use this to charge the battery ??

Thanks for your help!

Simply put, you may be able to get by with something jury-rigged for a while, but why not get a 6-12 charger.

Jim: I posted two hours ago but it didn't showup so I'll post again.. You said you have a "trickle" charger so if its less than 5 amps output when connected it will be ok but as Harold says K-mart has lowcost 6\12 volt chargers. The key here is low amps into your battery will NOT hurt it. Many tractors charge 2 to 5 amps all day and its OK for the battery.. but your charger may not like the mis-match long term. A 6 volt bulb in series will help the mis match..if the charger doesn't have good "current limiting" feature. harvey

Something you could do if you have another 6 volt battery, is hook the positive of one battery to the negative of the other battery, and then hook the charger to the remaining posts. By hooking the two 6 volt batteries in series like this, it is essentially one 12 volt battery.

Good luck

Jim,

The 12 volt charger will ruin (burn up) your six volt battery. You can get a charger with a 6 volt/12 volt switch for a resonable price at K Mart or Wall Mart.
