Got a 1200 yesterday to repair, how does the battery box lid go on and what else is missing? I have the cover with shifting pattern on it , but that's it ! Does the battery sit on the frame or a block of wood ?? Does it have some spacer/ clampy thing on top to keep the he cover from shorting ?? I have no clue what I need to make or find?

There is supposed to be a block of wood on top between the cover & battery. May see something in this manual. May find some help here also.

I knew I could count on you coming through buddy, thanks, that was just what I needed. Customer wants it all fixed up so it will be dependable, it's almost complete too, only a few things that I noticed so far, one thing it will need is the seat pan rebuilt it's all gone inside and got tweeked some how during its life, also tires are rubbing in rear. Just need to swap as offset is not quite right.

I posted what I did to our 1200 super chief but I can't find the right thread. I'm still having trouble loading pics or I would post them. I had some drawings with measurements for the box cover as well as the top and bottom wood pieces. Good luck hope you can get it made.                                                                                                                                                                                Roger

I'll do up a nice custom cut wood piece for the battery hold down/cover insulator , biggest issue at the moment is going to be rebuilding the rot in the fender pan, the rest will be easy.

Thanks Josh, that is just what i will do for the one i have.

Got the rig running the other day, old buzzard purrs like a kitten.
I will say that i am not impressed with this generatiion of rig, the engine is a monster to service the points and generator on...

Well, they got it all fixed up yesterday, the old rig runs and drives like a champ! The next thing they will want is the tiller hooked up, I'm sure. I'll snap a few pics of it, if I can remember, been crazy busy with plants, and green houses,farm stand, now it's time to start putting things in the ground, and next it will be hay.... I don't usually do the hay....
