Not sure if drilling and taping is an option. I had to do that on a couple pulley allen set screws.

Well, Keith was right again! A little heat from the Mapp gas torch and it came right out. :dancingbanana: Then, it was a matter of putting in the fitting and run the line.  I decided to pull the dash to put the gauge in. That's easier than pulling the fuel tank and battery on this. I cranked it over some before hooking the line in. Dummy me forgot the end at the engine wasn't hooked up! DOH! Nice puddle on the floor now, put some floor dry on it. Went ahead and put it all together. I put a compression union in the line at the back of the engine. I can unhook the line there if the engine has to come out.

Here's some pics. First is the gauge, check out the package. First tractor on there is an AC.

Here's the plug and fitting installed.

Fired it off! First pic is right after it started.

This is after about 5 minutes running at near full throttle. :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

And this is at idle after it warmed up! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

I have 30W oil in it. I'll know more this summer  when the engine gets real warm, but I think this engine is in pretty good shape!

Nice oil pressure gauge.
Replace that ammeter with a volt gauge, you will like it a whole lot better. That's what I did on my Cub Cadet 108. Of course I spent $30 to get a gauge that matched the style of the tractor, and was made in USA.

Kenny, looks like we use the same PTO.

I agree on both counts, nice work!

That's where my PTO came from! I had a couple of these from the 18 B&S laying about. Put one to work!

Today, I ordered the rest of the decals, an Amp gauge (30-0-30), an the hourmeter. Alice will be happy!

Would the place you get your decals from have any for a Craftsman II?

It's clickitandstickit! They have Sears, but older stuff. PM olcowhand about those!

I way prefer an ammeter over a voltage gauge.  You instantly can tell if things are charging as with a voltage gauge if not running a lot of DC power, you might run a while before a voltage gauge would show much of a drop.

  Kenny, Alice will really look great with those new stickies!

I'll respectfully disagree on the ammeter vs voltmeter, but that's a sweet tractor!

Kenny you machine is AWESOME, if someone else hasn't already told you. I have both the Voltmeter on Old Girl, and Amp meters on the Craftsman's. Both give information about the charging system, and both would be preferable over just a single gauge. Each has to be read differently, and you are probably already aware of these facts.

The AMP meter shows battery draw, and battery charge in Amps almost instantly. It does not show if the battery voltage is low (dead cell) or an over charging condition.

The VOLT meter gives an instant read on the battery voltage, If the voltage gradually climbs while running the battery is charging, if the battery voltage gradually falls while running it is being discharged. The Volt meter won't tell you instantly if charging or not.
