Salvation for 6-Volt Systems

Just because your tractor is saddled with a sluggish 6-volt starter doesn’t necessarily mean it needs an upgrade. Before converting to a 12-volt system, give the tractor an electronics checkup. Start with its battery, advises expert mechanic Jim Friedrich of Rust In Peace Tractor Resurrection.

The key is to give the battery a good charge. Next, test its cells, Friedrich says. A weak battery has a far greater effect on the response of a 6-volt system than it would a 12-volt design.
