I've really been in need of a loader tractor here on the farm.
I've been waiting for the right one at the right price to come along.
This '49 C with a loader came up on local craigslist last Thursday, and Friday night I hauled it home.
Pretty sweet unit. Starts and runs well.
I even tried my hand at hand cranking since it had one on the floor board. 1/2 crank and it fired up quick as using electric start!
Lights don't work, I'll have to look into that.
Ammeter shows charge while running, but something strange: It's still 6 volt, so I put the voltmeter on the battery. Not running=6.2 volts like normal. Running=my voltmeter was going crazy not even just jumping back and forth in a small range like on my cubs (which run like 7 or 8 volts when running).
Any thoughts? Maybe I need to Polarize the generator?
The old boy I bought it from had recently replaced the generator.
