: I'm getting a Ford 801 Powermaster soon. It has a 6 volt system on it now. I know that a 12 volt
: conversion package is available for the 8N, 9N and other models. However, I've not seen one listed
: for the 801 model. Does anyone know if one is available for the 801 (or whether one of the ones for
: the 8N, NAA or others would work)?

: If not, I'd like to know the parts that I need to cobble together. I.e., alternator, coil, etc., and
: where I could get my hands on a wiring diagram. Thanks in advance. I posted this message over on the
: 8N board before I figured out this was the better forum for this question.

There are kits available, the least expensive way is to make your own brackets and get a one wire alternator, the alternators go for around $35.00 around here. The nice thing about the 1 wire is that you run the wire from the alternator to the amp gauge and from the other post on the gauge to the soleniod switch.(hot post where the battery cable fastens) I have been using this type alternator for 20 years or more and have had real good luck with them. The alternator is a Delco with built in regulator. The reason you only have to use 1 wire is that a self exciting regulator is used in the alternator, the only problem that I have encountered is some of the regulators do not excite until the engine is turning about 1500 RPMs. TISCO has the brackets, they list for about $60.00 they are the same ones that fit the NAA.

That generator can be re-wound to 12V at any rebuilder for about $65. New Ford/NH voltage regulator, and a 12V battery (neg ground) and you're in business. Coil on that tractor is the same, 6V or 12V. Same wiring diagram.
