  1. Batteries are just new.. Shut the 1270 off after 10 min of running while its cooling down. Shut it off and turned it back on. Fires up like a charm. What I did was if the 1270 is going nowhere. I turn off the whole lights. If I'm plowing. I'll turn on the front and rear lights. Are you sure it's not the front and rear fog lights that I'm using that's causing the alternator to not charge the battery??
  2. Did a voltmeter test before and after chisel plowing on both the batteries and the alternator
  3. When I chatted with the parts store guy. On his 4020 The alternator is good on the tractor. But it's not charging the batteries. It's one of the wires etc.
  4. Not saying I won't test it.. but with new batteries. I can always recharge the other 2 batteries and replace it.
  5. From spring to summer. Every week. I start it. It fires up instantly. After using the fog lights for 2 whole nights recently. I noticed that the battery is out of juice. Replaced the batteries and it's back running. Talked with one of the parts store guys. He's owned a 4020 and From him. he just recommended replacing the batteries and charging it.
  6. Just these lights. Not running led lights
  7. Belts are tight by play and I'm running at 2000rpms pulling my 22ft disc at 3rd gear 1st range. As for the lights. Two front fog lights and 2 rear fog lights. One on each side. Had those lights fixed to work when it was at the shop after the Powershift rebuilt..
  8. Do you think it's because I'm using the front and rear fog lights for too long?? Before I was doing night tillage. Every week. It starts like a charm.
  9. Used the jumpack to jump the 1270. It ran like normal. Took it for a bit discing. Still pulling. Gave it 10 minutes to cool down. Shut it off, then tried starting it. Not enough juice to crank.. I'm assuming the alternator is good... how long do you guys think those 2 12v batteries will last??
  10. I'll test the alternator. Thanks..
  11. Just brought new batteries in the spring.. My gauges aren't working. So I'm clueless from this point.. I'll jump it. If the tractor goes out while discing. I'll assume it's the alternator...
  12. I was discing 10 acres fields for the last 2 nights. I have all the lights on when discing. Next day the 1270 is out of juice. I figured it's from using the lights.. Is that normal for the 1970s case tractors?? Or do you guys think the alternate is out?? It ran normal like always..
  13. It's the whole 140. The guy told me that the rear bearings are out and there's no gas tank and no hydraulic box by the battery. My 100 has everything. But water is inside the engine. Called a shop. They wanted 4000$ for a overhaul
  14. It runs good. I know the person that's selling it.
  15. My 100 has water in the engine. I found a scrap 140 with a good engine. Is it possible the 140 engine can fit in my 100???
  16. It's a super A. It's our very first owned tractor since we started farming 32 years ago. The 100s and 140s have a lifted fuel tank, hood and grill.
  17. This one I can't find the serial number. Not sure how many styles of radiators for the early and late super As.
  18. The 140 radiator is on my super A because we ordered another radiator for the super A and it won't fit... If it's not a concern with you guys. I'll take it that coolants flowing in the engine...
  19. Took it out making a couple rows for planting sugarsnaps. its working good, Caps tight fans working, sometimesit spit out a little coolant from the open overflow tube. My concern was the cracked open overflow tube. Would the radiator still flow coolant good in the engine after long hours even if the tube is cracked open??
  20. Questions can the radiator still keep the engine cool with this little hose broken by the cap??
  21. Is it normal for those 100s to burn out those ring gears?? Hes replace the ring gears before. I don't recall ringgears going out that fast on our super As and 140s???
  22. I might try that or buy a new ring gear..
  23. Have you checked if the fuel injector pump is working. Try unlocking that little button and push it in and out if it's squeezing fuel into the pump... if not. That's a problem.
  24. I just brought a farmall 100 from a relative. He mentioned to me that it needs a new flywheel to start. He mentioned that it's known to burn out.. It's got a 12v starter. Do you guy's know anything about the 100s burning flywheel starters?? I don't recall anything like that happened to our super As and 140s??
