Thanks chaps, I intend to get stuck in to the indoor work over the winter, and get these projects completed, but they are a lot more interesting than the building work I have had to do! I do feel that I am beginning to reap the rewards! On to the sunlit uplands of next spring!

Thanks Pekka, It is a good tractor, starts really easy, even when it has been standing for a long time, there are a couple of problems, but minor ones, there is a small weep from the water pump, needs a repair kit, and the main one is that it doesnt charge its battery, caused I am pretty sure by having a car type dynamo on it instead of the much bigger tractor type, didnt spot this when I bought it! It is ready for a final fix up this winter, and into use next spring! Thanks for the kind words.

My father has one Ford 5600 and three pre war Massey Fergusons. he have been tinkering with them and few of them have got "modern" AC car alternatorss insted of shot DC generators and tampered charge circuit. I even had to turn him new pulley to allow mounting car alternator to run with A-profile V-belt. One charge problem was located to steel washer and steel bolt on copper metal stud....it did not really conduct anny reasonable amount of current.

Yes pekka, that was what I was going to do, I am pretty sure that the generator is working, but I don't think it has enough output to operate the bigger cut out that the tractor is fitted with, I will have one more try with it, then it will get an alternator, I have one off a Volvo that only needs a diode pack, could be the one!

Re_ Tractor not changing: engine rpm was 1/3 of car engine ....needed smaller plley than DC generator had and still would not charge on idle. Also changed the belt to cogged to work better on small pulley.

Very Interesting Pekka!  I can see me making one of those pulleys in the nearish future! I just put up my latest video about some more in depth looks at the projects in my workshop, enjoy guys!
