Hold on here guys, I GOTS a question!

Looking at Kodiak's pictures (by the way very nice paint job) I noticed something that I like, real well.

I notice that he has his oil pressure gage, where I have my light switch and everything else is moved to the next hole. EXCEPT for the fuse holder, where does that go?

Looks great!

John, I'm with you--I really like the way Kodiak has moved his oil pressure gauge to a spot where you can see it. With my aging vision and unfortunately expanding waistline, it's pretty hard to see my gauge from the driver's seat. :)
Kodiak, that is a beautiful paint job. Is that one of Donny's half holes I see on the hood?

John, Kodiaks tractor would have had the fuse holder on the back of the light switch, so you might have to become creative for yours.

John:

That is how mine is laid out. Ammeter and Oil Pressure Guage top two knockouts from left to right. Center knockout has the light switch and the bottom knockout has my keyed ignition.

Mine did not have a fuse or fuse holder at all. They are a bit harder to find that I thought. Found it at a marine supply store for 2.25.

My light switch does have the fuse holder on the back side of the switch. I didn't re-arrange the instruments just moved the oil pressure from the filter boss to the instrument panel. There was a covered hole, I just knocked out the plug. I took the light switch apart to clean the inside...best thing I did lately it was nasty and didn't work at all, now it works like a charm.

Thanks for all the compliments. I'll post more pictures as I make progress, hoped to get more done this weekend but have to go work on my Dad's lift on his low boy.

Thanks Ron

Hey Kodiak,

What did you use to clean the switch with?? I at least need to clean the contacts on the back, they are pretty rusty.


Thanks and keep up the good work!

I used a small wire brush (hand held) and carb cleaner. These switches are very sturdy so a good scrubbibg will do them good. For the guys interested in the oil guage I bought a tubing kit at the local auto parts store it had an assortment of fittings so it was no problem running the tubing to the instrument panel.

Kodiak, if you click on the little "edit" button on your own posts, you can correct your mistakes after posting them. I know this from experience. I get lots of practice.

Looks good Kodiac. These guys that see a half hole don't realize that is where the die electric goes.
