The rear frame ends are closed off with a piece of 1/2 inch thick plate steel.




Using some of the angle iron left over from the horse trailer, I started making up the battery box.




Here's the finished battery box.




It is then bolted in place in between the rear frame rails.




Here is how the battery looks when setting in the box.
The trailer hitch is a cast iron bracket that has been laying around for a very long time.
I think it was an old motor mount.
The bracket under the trailer hitch is for the clevis coupler on the two wheel cart that we use at the tractor shows.




The dash box on the R/T tractor is mounted down in front of the seat.
It has worked out well mounted in that position so I decided to also mount the dash box in front of the seat on this tractor.

Starting to lay out the dash box.




Bending the sides up to form the box.




The end is welded on the box and it is all sanded down and primed.
I installed the key switch and the volt meter and mounted the dash box on the tractor.

The voltage regulator is mounted on the seat bracket.
I made a clamp out of a piece of stainless angle to hold the battery down.
