  1. Nice stands fellows ,good ideas shared here!
  2. Yesterday ,I installed the tune up magneto on the Farmall C .Installed charge up battery. After that I in stalled the rebuilt generator wire it and polarized it. I started it with the rebuilt starter. Whirled it over and it fired like it always does. Very happy Farmall C man ! Went into the house to warm up cold fingers . Maybe adjust the valves and adjust the Governor control rods if I want !

  10. my C does that on me going up hills cause I refuse (to lazy) to put enough gas in the tank . Works fine going down hills .
  11. Suggest staying with original set up( generator)+ . Voltage regulator should have two coils one being a cut out ,the other being the voltage regulator . Suggest a reliable auto electric shop that’s been in business for awhile that knows your generator. Not saying you can’t rebuild it yourself if you have the machine tools, growlers,vom to test and repair . Have the Generator shop test your unit before you do anything . You might be ok , could be an another issue , this will save u about 200 . Suggest getting books out of libraries references read up on generators . Will help making the correct discision for you. i think an alternator is over kill for me. . Got one ( 6 volt converted positive ground ) on the Super C , it oks ! Not going to do anymore. Good luck

  19. I got my custom pistons for the Fordson from Wisco in mentor ,Ohio, ref. They looked at my piston , said it was a of a custom pistons similar to a tractor puller wanted them to make special. They told him his design would not work but he insisted . It didn’t work . To my advantage they made my pistons to our spec mine with a flat top . Also ,prior to this I went to Egge in California , they wanted to charge me double the price that Wisco did the job . They really gave the impression they weren’t interested.
  20. Story ! background . when we got the Super C in 1960 , it was a mess ,was used in the woods for logging , tree fell on it split in two . Weld back together . We got it cause it was a SUPER C , My first mechanic apprentice jobs dad gave (age 10 ) was to get huge plugs that they jammed into the cylinders 2 and 3 . The two horse traders we got the tractor from joked they couldn’t the plugs out of it . I think it was a joke on dad they wanted to play by selling it to us. because they knew dad wanted one. I think the hex on these plugs were 15/16 ( maybe you guys know what the hex was ion some 18 mm .or something I don’t remember . I remember there was no room between head and plug hex I got them out, think I use a in wrench toolbox . It would move the plug a 5 degree rotation . I spent a week some thing to get those plugs out. Anyways the tractor good for forty years after that. I should have saved those two plugs ,they would be priceless ,maybe wizards
