Great looking tractor, glad you were able to strike a deal.

People that lie to little old ladies and take advantage of them like he did have a special, warm place in the afterlife.

That's awesome Pete! I am glad you were able to get this (cough) guy to sell it to you :thumbs:

That really looks to be in great shape!

Congrats!!!!!!!!!! One of my T-63's had front rims and tires like this one. Looks to be in really great shape! Good for you! I am definitely envious of your find!

I love this thing. I have yet to even play with it. I was away and we got over a foot of snow. Thankfully I tarped it before I left. Now it's sitting in my driveway laughing at me that I am shoveling snow around it. Well this weekend is my 1st weekend off and I'm going to take the bush hog with the snowblower out in the yard to throw some snow since it's still light and fluffy.

 

Then once that path is cleared, going to push the 12 and 10 outside, cover them and pull this one in!

I was blowing some snow today with my 7. Didn't know that below the light fluffy snow, was wet heavy snow. Needless to say, the blower kept spinning but not throwing. Got stuck as it turned into a slick track quickly, but it was fun none the less! 

 

I also pushed the V into the garage. Boy that was a task getting it up hill in the snow, but it counted as my work out for the day ;)

 

I now have 4 bush hogs all different models in my garage with room to spare! Going to go work on the V now and will post some photos too!

Question on the belt driven models. 

 

The battery, when looking down on the left (driver) side, what terminal should be where? Both cables are red and it came with no battery. 

 

Thanks

No battery nor wiring harness came with my V4-6, so I am of no help there.  There even has been discussion with Scott (sacsr) with some D series being positive ground.  Likely negative ground though, so trace which red cable is indeed the ground cable.  I'd change it to black.

I'm going to go and snap some photos now of what I see and I'll trace it back and see where both cables go. I will be changing it to black for sure. I am looking forward to hearing this one run!

Looking at the wiring, the negative goes to the starter and the positive goes to the push start. Looks like someone been playing with the wiring in here, will post photos shortly.

Some photos:

 

Also threw in two from Christmas. My buddy Jason got me a Bush Hog shirt, nice shirt with a pocket in the front, and a tractor crossing sign since he got outbid on the bush hog sign on Ebay not too long ago. I love it all!

 

It looks like someones been playing with the wiring. On the push button start, it comes from the battery to the push button, then to the ground. You can see in the photo the red cable to the push button start, then black cable to ground.

 

 

Then in photo 9030 you can see the ground, and other cable going to the starter. 

 

 

I would think that the black cable black and red cables would need to be swapped. The ground black cable which is coming off of the push botton should go to the starter and the red starter cable which runs directly to the battery should go to the ground.

 

What do you all think?

Looks to be a std ring gear starter, so the red cable should go to the battery, with the other off the push switch directly to the starter.

Any other power needs can pull their power through the ammeter, with the ammeter hooking up the the battery cable at the push switch end.

That's what I figured, so I'll switch them and see what happens. I would have had this done hours ago, but we had a FD call for a fully envolved barn fire. Thankfully no one was harmed, but it was a total loss. No GTs were harmed either. I'm wicked tired, will give it a go tomorrow.
