Farmall H ???

Question

Northland Sportsman

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!

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
