Thanks to everyone for your feedback. A solution to hide wires and electrical componets came to me after placing the battery in monster battery box. The mag. system was no count, so I converted to coil system. I also had problem finding a push start button the correct size, bolt pattern, and amp.  The only one heavy enough was really a foot push button and too cumbersom to fit nicely in dash. So I added the solenoid to use less gauge wiring. As you can see it ALL fit slick in batt box with some room to spare. She starts and charges great! DSC01368.JPG DSC01367.JPG

Welcome Burl. All I can say is "Wow". 

I took a week off work last year to relax and restore an MTD 990. I am thinking you may have done something similar. Once you get going on it, you can't stop, thinking about what you are going to do next.

 

Very nice mods with the starter and ignition. That old Wisconsin is just itching to be dressed up.

 

Do you have other restored tractors posted somewhere? I would be interested to see what others you have raised from the dead.

 

By the way, no missed steps on your first post........

Sorry for a delayed reply Jim, the trim strips came off the other junker that I have been robbing a few parts from. They are not the best,had to make my own attach clips on back to get them to stay on.

Yes VTXrider, this is a nasty hobby! I have restored  about a dozen. The first ones were all JDs but have expanded to others that excite me. I kept one JD 140 H3 with #80 cart. Just recently completed a Case 190 and going to start work on a Case 150 and two 444s. Just cant get enough rust in my system. Also done a sears Suburb that turned out slick ,it was gone fast. Thank you for your post.

I have 3 D4-10s total. One of them( of the two not rest) is very restorable. just got it a few days ago. It is 10 times beter shape than the one I just completed. I will just get it running and sell. What I want now (like everyone else) is a HD- 10 or 12
