Fuel gauge re-installation? how to wire it in a 12V conversion?

I'm reassembling the 871 and had pulled a rats nest of new and old wires from the original 6V and a later 12V conversion.

Trying to re-wire and install the fuel gauge.

Have identified the wire to the tank fuel sender.

But need to know about two other wires and how they connect in to a 12V conversion.

Can someone help me with that? Appreciate the help. Also need to know how to hook-up the small 12V bulb and socket fro the SOS shifter cover?

thank you. tom

Tom, sell the 6v fuel guage, and buy a 12v guage. I'd probably give you enough to buy a new one, and dinner while you're in town to get it for that 6v.

The shifter light is just connected to a hot lead that is hot when the key is on. The ground side is to the shifter. If you have now converted to 12 volt you will also need to replace the bulb with a 12 volt.

You should have a wire from the switched side of a junction block to the fuel gage on one side and from the other side of the gage to the sender unit. The wire from the trans cover is for the safety starter switch in the trans. This wire goes to the starter button, and from the button to the solenoid. The light on the left side is for the trans oil pressure. There should be a wire coming out of the hyd reservoir housing just ahead and slightly up from the hyd dipstick. This goes to the light. The light on the right is the charging indicator light.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
