Sounds like someone who didn't know what they were doing put a twelve volt battery in a six volt system. Are there any wires that appear burnt? If there are, major components like the coil, starter, generator/alternator could be fried and your going to need to rebuild the electrial system in order to get it to fire up.

If it's a Jubilee it's a '53. The same tractor was built in '54 as an NAA. The original battery would have been a 6 volt positive ground. If the system has been converted to 12 volt, one would think it should be negative ground.

Since it has a 12v battery, it should have an alternator. If it does not, then someone just shoved a 12v battery in it and no more of the necessary conversion items needed to go to 12v. If this is the case, and you'll have to do some investigation to see if this is the case, you have to decide if you want to finish the conversion to 12v., or return it to 6v. If it was running on 12v., with no reduction resister, you'll probably need new coil, points, condenser, and a check to see if the voltage regulator and 6v generator still work. Running a 6v on 12v would do no damage to the generator, starter, wiring or starter switch, although the coil was probably fried and now won't work on 6 or 12 volts. If the 6v generator needs work, then I guess I would consider finishing the conversion to 12v starting with a new alternator etc.

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]
