While it has taken me a long time to put this info together it will be worth it if I can help make your 12v conversion easier. I have tried to include part #ís and prices when ever I could. I have not bought every one of these parts and have got some of this info from other sources. While I believe it to be true I can not guarantee it. This is why I have tried to explain how a part works so you can check it out for yourself when buying. I have also read over and over this post before posting it to try and make sure it is correct in every way but I am human and mistakes do happen. I would ask that anyone that sees a mistake to point it out so we can all see it. I would like to also thank all the guys on the Ford Tractor Board of YTMAG for their help in putting this together.

I'm trying to convert a 6V to 12 801. When you refer to terminal block I'm unsure where it would be located. I'm using a 1 wire alternator, a new coil but it has an external resistor. The schematic that came with the alternator is really confusing. Thanks in advance for any help

 25 years of wrenching distilled...... in reply to john in la, 11-15-2004 05:33:06  
Very good job, John in La.

Thanks for the effort, I am sure it will help numerous old iron users in the future. This write-up is now saved as a file and will be printed out and put into the binder for the old girl. In fact, I am going to e-mail to a friend of mine with an old Allis AC that has a butchered wiring harness that needs to be straightened out before it lights off and burns something up.

For the less inclined types the complete conversion sets are probably the easiest way to accomplish the goal. After piecing several conversions together over the years from whatever was to hand at the time this write-up really ties it all together. My hat is off to you for the effort.

Now go out and hop on a tractor and take a ride, you deserve it.........

Open the entire post by hitting expand on the orginal post.
Go to file (top left corner)
choose save as
When the new window opens hit the drop down arrow and choose where you want to save it. ( desk top; my documants; ect)
Click save

It will save the entire post to you computer.

I did think about sending this to kim so it can be added to the articles.

On second thought after typing what I was going to say I think it is best to do it this way.

Send me a e-mail at
jpfmcf at yahoo dot com

I can tell you some things I am thinking about as to posting this and you can give me some feed back.

You do good work dude.

This ought to get published and added to the "Manuals" section so that it doesn't get lost in the archives. This will be useful for lots of folks for lots of years.

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]
