That M looks like it's been pretty well taken care of.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

We had a 50 M that was a real workhorse. Also had a 46 M and a couple of H's over the years. You're right - gotta love the remote hydraulics. Don't know what we would have done without them.

I never saw a remote hydraulic control on an H or M till after we quite farming with them, but one sure would have been a great item to have.

Andrew - just guessing here but maybe a pressure switch to excite the alternator instead of running a light or diode????

yep its aswitch for charging the alt.It dosen't charge unless there is oil pressure and quits when the engine is not running .To keep from burning up the alternato in case the switch is left on.
