Ellie is a working tractor. The only reason I can keep my Cubs is that they do the chores... and pretty much all of them now or in the very near future.
Ellie is a 48 with a Key Switch, Magneto System with Battery, Starter and Electrical Package. She is a pleasure to start and very easy. The 6 volt system is really simple to work on and clean up. And because I have a Magneto.. if I have an electrical breakdown, all I have to do is disconnect the battery and a couple other terminals (I forget which at the moment -- CRS
yup.. got that too
), and I can start her up with the crank. For a guy with a split and rewired rib cage.. even this is easily doable.... not hard at all.
So, my concern is not really about aesthetics or even cost, as the cost to convert a complete 6 volt system is substantially more than the other option. That option is to maintain your current 6 volt system. I am an electrical dummy
.. yup.. you heard it right.. I am and electrical dummy
. And with BD, Ron, Cecil's and a few others, even I can do this work. So for anyone who can tell the difference between a Phillips, a Standard and a Robertson (square drive), this is basic easy stuff. Also there is a section on the Manual Server specifically on Generator's
. I found the info I needed on YTMag and with their permission that info is used on the server so it might help others understand it. Hopefully that will help.
So my question I guess becomes.. why do you want/need to convert? IS something missing? IF not, Fix the current system and you probably will be happy with that. Don't band-aid it... fix it
Like the guy in the suit for the Orange company ING says -- It's your money !
