Postby Johnson » Thu Jul 30, 2015 6:41 pm

Fuck off. Ok Siri got it wrong so I better type it. (First off) :/

Project Farmall M special needs lighting:
1 Install head lamps, rear work lamp, rear tail lamp.
2 Install aftermarket clam shell fenders.
3 Paint the Fenders
4 Install tail/fender/turn-hazard lamps
5 Fabricate a lamp mount that will mount out over the tires
Out side edge that will adjust and be removable.
6 install a wire a control box and Yankee turn flex control.

This Box I ordered through "antique electric"

Should be interesting. Looking forward to the project.
What do you mean I can't do that?

Dad bought a 12v conversion for our Super M after ruining another battery when the starter siezed up a couple months ago. Probably that explains why the starter has been cranking slower and slower for some time.
I'd bought a bunch of 6v bulbs for the old 6v system but never installed them, now I gotta take those bulbs and cross them to a 12v version...

We are still working the light project.
We decided to first put on some aftermarket new fenders.
Painted and installed we decided to build a set of steps
Safe enough for me to climb up onto the tractor.

This all leads up to the lighting deal. But hear is a few pictures of the
Step assembly we build of scrap iron. The Bottom step is Kubota L series
Step I acquired cheaply when I worked for the dealer.
The wire feed welder performed well with the flux wire.

The Vansickle paint bug bombs suck, but good enough for this old tractor.
The electrical box is installed and we will build mounting for lights this week.
Picked up misc. connectors.

I have been using the steps now and they are awesome to use.
I thought it may be a tad squishy getting in their, but it isn't bad at all.
With a Right left Right approach with my legs and feet, I clear the clutch pedal easy on the
Approach so no crowding or snagging. The top step at the exact same height
As the floor board gives more room for drivers feet, especially when looking back behind
The tractor.

Nice work. Them ol' gals could be a job to climb up on.

Yes,
It hurts to fall on them.
This is a good reason for having bought the Hobart Welder.
A couple small projects we have done and it has paid for itself.

Project Forward>....
We are going to clean and organize this Holiday weekend.
2- design light mounts.
