Farmall Garden - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


There seems to be plenty of information available online - the wiring is relatively simple and basic, though the 6 volt version with a 4-wire regulator is a little more complex. The 12 volt conversion with a single wire alternator could hardly be simpler.

It seems the ignition is by magneto. Apart from the stop control these units are self contained and if the engine has a good cranking speed and the magneto (and engine) is in good order the engine should start.
The magneto is usually reliable with just the contact breaker points needing periodic attention. When the magneto fails it is a task for a specialist to sort out as a rewind is often needed...

Replace the coil with a 12volt coil. Replace the generator with an alternator. Replace any light bulbs with 12volt. Fit the new 12volt battery in with the negative terminal to chassis! and there you have it.

take a plug out connect the HT lead to it and ground the body to see if there is a spark

carby , -drain the fuel from the bowl and clean out the main jet
