# 16223 J. 6 or 12 volt?

Sat Feb 22, 2014 6:05 pm

Hey guys, this is my first post but I am a long time lurker. I found this little sweetly beside of the I road yesterday and she followed me home. After a tune up and new coil and ballast resistor she sounds solo sweet. When I found her she had a 12 volt battery that was dead so we tried jumping her to no avail, and now I know why, any way I thought she was spinning over pretty fast but was told that " they were all 12 volt from the factory". The numbers on the generator, as best as I can tell, are 14 V GD 0314. The starter is Delco Remy 1107093 1K 20 I think.

That would have been a 6v from the factory, but it could have been converted some time in it's life.

It is a 1961 model by the serial # If it is a 140?

It is a 140. After a quick google search the numbers on the generator turned up no information but according to the charge gauge it is charging so I guess I can ASSume it is a 12 volt generator?

That tractor was originally 6 volt and the generator looked the same as the later models that had a 12 volt generator. It could have been swapped at some point but It could be still 6 volt.

Thanks for all of the information guys. It looks like the starter is toast but the engine seems to be sound and not smoking. Does anyone know of a reliable starter/alternator/generator guy in the Monroe, Charlotte areas of North Carolina?

I found Jerry through a friend in Stanly County. I took the generator and starter to him this morning and he fixed them as I waited and watched and for a VERY reasonable price. thanks for all of the help guys, I am sure I will have many more questions. Bye the way the tractor has had a 12 volt regulator put on so now don't just reverse the wires on amp gauge?
