Workin' on a Farmall

I brought this tractor home about a month ago and a couple weeks ago I pulled it into the shop with a HF winch. The tractor belongs to my cousin and he wants me to get it running for him. He also wanted me to get all of the sheet metal put back on and give it a good checking over. Hopefully things go well without to many surprises.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

The owner started a 12v conversion so I will need to complete that with a coil, VR, and wiring for the charging system. I had a coil from my parts 350 that still works and today I tested the alternator that came with the tractor and its good.

Hopefully it won't take too much work. I know the engine is good because my brother did an inframe rebuild on it probably 15-20 years ago for our uncle. It was driven around a few times its been sitting in my cousins shop ever since. I will be getting another Farmall tractor project as payment for my work.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

cjet69, Is that a Delco alternator? If so you may not need a VR, because the VR may be built in. I have a 12 volt conversion on the Farmall A. The ignition is still a magneto though.

It is a Delco but, its not internally regulated(see link). I have one just like it on one of our JD's.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

I'd go with a 10SI Delco off a 1970's to late 80's GM that has a built in regulator..
Those older externally regulated ones are usually only 37 amp or 63 at most,and the regulators are fairly expensive and don't like sitting idle long periods..
That alternator is a pre 1971 version which is getting harder to find used nowadays,and costs more at parts stores than an internally regulated one will..
The one advantage of the externally regulated ones is you can rig one up to make 110V DC by full fielding the regulator and run some tools with AC/DC motors with it..but you can do that with an internally regulated one too..

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

The way he plans to use the tractor most of the time the charging system will only be used to maintain the battery. Occasionally the lights might get used.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

I made it out to the shop for a bit today. I found some material to make a bushing for the pivot bolt on the alternator bracket. It had a 1/2" pipe welded on and a 3/8" bolt thru it which allowed way to much slop. Now I need to address the tensioner bracket to get it lined up. I had to remove the fan and pulley to access the bolt that holds it in place. The bolt goes into the water jacket so I need to drain the coolant before pulling it out. Looks like I may need to get a longer belt also.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

A couple weeks back I tried to remove the bolts holding the fuel tank. They were really rusty and felt like they were going to break. I've been soaking them in ATF/Acetone every few days and today I tried them again. They all came out with a little working back and forth with out breaking any of them. Now I have good access to the gauges for wiring and can also clean out the fuel tank.

Re: Workin' on a Farmall

I have heard of others having good luck with ATF and acetone. What mixing ratio do you use?
