Just wondering when IH switched the letter series to 12 volts, dad just bought a late model SM Casting code Y = 1953 with live oil and the battery under seat and hyd reservoir under tank and it is now 12 volts. So should it be 12 volts or did somebody switch it over ?

All the letter series tractors came with 6 volt setup. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think IH made a 12 volt tractor until the 60 series!

During the 450 series. We had one farmer that had two 450's gasers, the early one was 6V and the later one was 12V. When doing service calls you always had to ask.
At least one model from each series,,,uncommon dirt tractors a must! 1928 regular on steel to 6788. 9 AU tractors and a C- 1935 IHC truck. Un earthed a speed truck just for fun. We're still digging!!!

All the deisels were 12
but ya it happened the in 450 production, recently learned that with our W-450G purchase, its 12 V Thank god!
man they must of had some stuborn engineers in that factory that were defiant to put 12V in the gasses. id like to know the reason why, and if some new engineer finaly came along and put his foot down and said we're going to 12. 6 V batterys are useless now days. so we swear by 8 Volts
there was a fellow who had an article in the RP Mag this spring about batterys. he was right about everything except he didnt understand 8 volt batteries and said they were no good! woh he needs to be educated on them. ive been meaning to email him but we've been so busy lately. they shouldn't even make 6 volt batterys anymore.(except for the long paralell ones for the 06 series) a local service station here keeps 2 8Vs on stock. and says he hardly sells a 6 anymore.

Local farm store here in North Texas has 8V in stock; suprising the Oleman!
