Farmall H ???

5 posts in this topic

I have an old farmall H that I use for plowing. I had to jump start it the other day and forgot to check the charger. I hooked it up in 12v mode, its a 6v system blush.gif. now I have nothing when I hit the starter button. Any ideas on what to check first? confused.gif Thanks!

I'm thinking that if you applied 12v to a 6v battery you probably fried (literally) the battery. Don't know exactly how the circuit keyswitch is wired with regard to the generator but if the 12v was also applied across the generator there may have been damage done there as well.

Check to make sure that its not 6 volt positive ground.Get your battery charger hooked up correctly and check your battery terminal connections.Charge it and see if it will start.Its been a few years since i used an H but i am pretty sure they are positive ground.I would quess your battery is just dead and needs a charge.You can also try pulling it on a gravel or concrete surface and pop the clutch and start it that way.Good luck...Hope it starts for you.Look at the battery itself for the + mark and see if it runs to ground.

The one we had was positive ground!! We used to jump it with 12 volt and nothing was ever damaged. Just had to make sure the lights where off. They couldn't take the 12 volts.

It is a 6v pos ground. I am aware of that. After doing some checking I am thinking I most likley fried the battery. Any other suggestions welcome, but it doesn't look like there is a whole lot to go wrong with the system. Thanks for the replies!

Just to update, It was the battery. I must have fried it with the charger on 12v and bat low on water. A new bat and all is good!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
