I have a 1477 that has been in the family since it was new. I am now the 3rd generation owner and it still has the original tires on it. I attempted to put a tube in one of the fronts but the tires are so old and dry rotted that the tire is falling apart. I guess it's time for new tires. Can I use a wider front wheel and tire like the HT-20 18-8.50x8?

 

I would also like to replace the rears soon. I currently have the original 24-12.00x12 bar/ag tires. I would like to go to an industrial tire but can't find them in that size. Will a 26-12.00x12 fit without issue?

Yes you can. You'll need to find a slip-fit style rim to match what you have now as the later HT series had bolt-on style front hubs.

Yup, the 26x12-12 is actually the factory size (...aside from the optional skinny 27x8.50-15s) so the 24s you have on now are actually undersized!

since you have the original tires, I'm guessing you have the original  S14D Wisconsin engine(?) any chance of getting some pictures of the wiring for the charging system- another member was looking to "re-install" the old system but didn't have any thing to reference. I thought mine would be helpful but a friend rewired everything so nothing looks like the original

just a thought to help out another "poster"

Welcome to GTT. You have a great tractor there and it being an heirloom is icing on the cake. If you need manuals for it or to look at the old advertizing, go to our Manuals Section(3 free downloads per day). Good Luck, Rick

I don't have many pics, but here is recent one with the plow on.

If someone still needs wiring pictures I have a few but they are not the best and I know it has been modified over time. My grandfather added Hi/Low beams and a horn. I have also converted it to an electric fuel pump. Let me know and I can post them.

great looking machine - mine has a more of a square fuel tank,the starter/generator on the right side and a "mushroom" muffler also, a lot more 'aged look'

 

the original posting looking for wiring information is below - not sure if they're still in "need"

 

Wisconsin S14D stator & module wiring
