:bigrofl: looks like a pretty easy wiring job. Sometimes the simplest way is best.

My neighbor growing up, had a Perkins D. He had an old fashioned starter button on it. Like used to be in the MH tractors of the 40's.

Butt-ugly...

But functional :smile1:

IMG00331-20111109-1854.jpg

Decided to check the light switch to see if it worked and it was good to go. :dancingbanana:
I have had these lights for at least 10yrs. Picked them up at the flea-market and figured the would be good for something someday. 55 watts each so I was afraid they would blow a fuse but so far so good.

Fred you may be able to adapt a standard automotive relay to run the glow plugs. 60$ is ridiculous for a relay. Those lights should do the job and are probably way brighter than what came on it.

Factory lights leave allot to be desired on most JD's. In the summer, sometimes I wait till dark and it cools down to mow. No way I will give full price for a relay, my rigged-up setup works just fine for now but I will keep watching on E-bay. :smile1:

Tire ballast. Got a pump from HF and a adapter from Gemplers. Pump would not prime itself :mad2:
Plan B, stuck the whole pump in the bucket and it worked great! 32gals and 264lbs all-together in 4 tires. :dancingbanana:
