  1. LATEST battery box update. As mentioned a couple posts ago this past Tuesday I brought the rest of the battery box to my local fabrication place where I am having the top piece for the box made, I am now very happy to report that those pieces are made and I brought them home today and I think they came out great! Just the littlest things can make a big difference. Now we just have to cut the old rusty pieces out and weld the new pieces in...... This is all for now, more to come soon......
  2. Here is an update on the voltage regulator, it's off now but 2 screws broke off in the process.......
  3. Hi folks, I got a few more updates on the tractor since my last post. A couple days ago this past Tuesday I got it out for the very first time since I bought it this past December to have my stepdad help me get the battery box off and to also get the voltage regulator off to see what it looks like, because I could not get them off myself as mentioned in post 45. That day after the rest of the box was taken off I brought it down to my fabrication place I am having make the piece for the top of the box. Let's start with taking the rest of the battery box off, which we sadly had to grind both the screw heads down to nothing to get it off......
  4. It's time for the ignition switch comparison that I mentioned in post 50. You can see what I am talking about when I say that the new one is different because it is a 5 terminal and a click/snap in type of terminal and smaller in size and diameter, and when I got my old original one out I noticed it's a 4 terminal and a screw in type and it's bigger in size and diameter. See my 2 pictures below......
  5. One more picture of the switch being taken out......
  6. Another older update...... it's time to take the old original ignition switch out! I took the switch out the next day or 2 since I got the new switch from ISaveTractors. I would use it to save a little money and to keep as many original parts as possible and I'm sure it is still good, BUT there is a rusted piece of key that is stuck and will not come out in the key hole so it has to go. To get it out was a "nightmare" for me with so little room to work with the steering column in the middle of the switch. I also had to take the starter generator out too. Here are some pictures.....
  7. Hi folks, I got another update on the tractor, but it unfortunately is not a good one. Going yet again back to post 35 on this page; about a week ago I got my new ignition switch I ordered from Norman at ISaveTractors, and unfortunately in my opinion it's wrong. My stepdad however says we could possibly make it work if I can't find a new one like the old original one in the worse case scenario; but positively speaking I think I may have located a VERY close match if not the same one from O'Reilly Auto Parts. (See my link below.) I say the new one from ISaveTractors is wrong because it is a 5 terminal and a click/snap in type of terminal and smaller in size and diameter, and when I got my old original one out I noticed it's a 4 terminal and a screw in type and it's bigger in size and diameter. A comparison on that will be in a another thread. Here is the link for the one from O'Reilly Auto I'm thinking about buying below..... https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/c/standard-ignition/engine-sensors---emissions/switches/switches---specialty--universal-/daed438bf33a/standard-ignition-starter-switch/std0/us77 The one from Norman at ISaveTractors below. It is a switch for a Magneto ignition like mine BUT you will see the comparison in another post......
  8. More measurement pictures. Again, I will have more to come on this project hopefully soon .....
  9. Again going back to post 35 on page 2 here, now with taking the rusted screws out to get the battery box off. Here is why below; the "culprit" being rust which I do not believe I noticed before when I first bought it from the previous owner. I could not get the screws out even with PB blaster and letting it sit so I will probably end up drilling them out. The fabrication place I am having make my other piece for the top part of the box I will have make me this piece as well; I called them this past week and they said they will have the person making my other call me BUT I still have yet to hear back. That said I will call them this week. The sides have a little rust also BUT not nearly as bad as this though. On a separate note, while I was at it I also measured the part where it is rusted and it measures 5"X10.5". More to come on this project hopefully soon.......
  10. Hi folks, I'm back with a little older update on the tractor that is going back to post 35 on page 2 here with trying to take the old voltage regulator off. I had to take the seat off to get to it because in my opinion with the seat on, would of been a little bit too tight of a space to work in which explains my 1st an 2nd pictures. As you can see from my photos with the cap off, it is the original regulator as it says "Delco Remy Made In USA" on it and the inside actually looks pretty good in my and my stepdads opinions. I will 95% MAYBE end up just buying a new one for reliability reasons BUT we will see because I want to and will also test the original here to see if it works, and if it does just keep that one on as I like originality......
  11. Thank you, i'm not perfect by any means and i'm trying my best. I just want to take my time and as much as I need on this tractor and do it right the first time.
  12. I sanded a part that had a bunch of rust pits in it down with 120, 220, then 320 grit sandpaper then primed it then sanded it again 3 times then painted it the same day I drained the oil out of my engine......
