Got my 300U converted to 12V.

Converted my 300U over to 12 volts last weekend. I used some of the old wire harness and double checked all my connections but I could't get any juice to the starter. I finally gave up and rewired the whole thing over with new wire and had the same problem with nothing happening when I turn the key. Finally I noticed on Bob M's wiring diagram a wire running from ampmeter to ignition switch. I connected a wire with two alligator clips from meter to switch and she fired right up. I was so relieved that I had to have a few brewskeys. Just want to thank Bob M for his instructions and wiring diagrams I used. I used a combination of his M and diagram for tractors with magneto's and solenoid operated starters. Just wanted to let others know in case they run into the same problem. Also I think my 6 volt solenoid is handling the 12 volts ok. Tractor starts so fast it doesn't have time to get hot.

I love it when a plan comes together. You deserve the brew-skis.

I remember when I first got my M home. I wired up a new starter solinoid, new battery cables and all that good stuff. It would not turn over. The starter clunked but didn't spin. I was all ready to give up for the night, and decided to turn over the motor by hand. No go. "OH NO, ITS STUCK!" I found a big wrench, and pulled a little on the hand crank socket on the crank shaft. One little tug, and she popped loose. After that, when I tried the starter, she fired right off. Brew-ski time!

It is so neat when something finally goes right.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
