Farmall M light upgrade

Sun Sep 19, 2010 7:22 pm

Back in july I bought a farmall M because I had been wanting a big rowcrop farmall for awhile. It has been sitting oustide for awhile and the old lights where shot. The bulbs where hanging on by the wires and I ended up duct taping then to the housing just for looks.

Here is a before shot.

Yesterday I was at a swap meet and saw a set of chrome headlights for sale and thought wow those would look sweet on my M :lol: :lol: so I bought them. As soon as I got home I got rid of those ugly old lights and tried to put my new ones on. The mounting bolts where just a little to big for the light clamps so I had to drill them out a little so the new lights would fit. I also had to set up a wiring system for them since the old one was long gone. After I got them all wired up I waited until dark and Turned them on. Let me tell you what these light work great. They will really help if I ever need to drive the M to work at 5:30 am again :{_}: :{_}:

Here are the pics.

Just for fun here is a picture of the light switch that I used since I didn't have a toggle switch on hand lol

I like the chrome...headlights and dual rear view mirrors at the same time [check out the reflection in the photo]

One of our Farmall H tractors had a light like that on the left side, though not quite as deep. it also served as a mirror for that side. :lol:

One must assume that the charging system has been upgraded.
