I'm game to make another adapter--measure the bolt circle on your flywheel, first to make sure we have room to work. Also check if the backside is flat.

Will do, it's on its way from back east. Hopefully, the baby will be here and I can hang out a little longer this time.

So, switching gears, electrically speaking. With the L3E, I am looking for a pre heat ignition switch that has the spring loaded CCW rotation to get those glow plugs hot. Another thought would be to have a standard key, with a toggle switch with a relay/timer.


Also, I will probably need to use a relay, N.O. for the fuel shutoff. The harness will be a fun one for me, a little step down from my job dealing with 480 and up.

Hang in there guys, I'm gearing up so I can do this over a day or two.

Air cleaner ordered
Flywheel ordered.
Rear hydraulic hook up ordered too!
And maybe a new key switch.

Some people just use a momentary toggle or push button with a relay and count to ten...

Toggle will be nice, plus I want to add some gauges to the dash.

Well, looks like I'm getting a new John today, wish me luck!

I assume this is a small, pink blessed event, and not a green tractor... at any rate, best wishes to the wife and you.

I'm pretty sure he sold his Jacobsen a couple weeks ago.
