Hello all, newbie here. I have a Ford 601 Workmaster which I've owned for over 20 years. It has been a work tractor, purchased as a non running tractor. Motor rebuilt, clutch etc so mechanically it is in good shape but cosmetically a bit challenged so I am starting to do a mild restoration of the old thing. One aspect of many old tractors which has always looked out of place to me is the use of alternators. Mine has an alternator. It works, just doesn't jive with a 59.
My question is this. Has anyone had an original 6 volt generator rewound/modified so that it put out 12 volts? Is this feasible? I like the 12 volt kick on the starter, which is the reason for the question. Basically I want it to LOOK original but with a bit of improvement.
Apologies if this has been covered previously. I did a search on the site and didn't find anything - probably used the wrong search term if it is there already.
Thanks for any tips!
