I am in need of a Farmall C electrical drawing. I have searched this site for quite awhile. The forum posts that address this are littered with broken links to what must have been what I need, years ago. It looks like John T in Indiana may have posted this several times a long time ago, but again, the links are broken.

This tractor belongs to my dad and I am traveling to see him over the holidays. He's complaining of charging problems and other intermittent electrical problems. I'm trying to educate myself a little before I get there.

His Farmall C has a distributor, a three position light switch and a four terminal voltage regulator. It remains as 6v positive ground, as originally equipped. S/N 178305 (1951?) Casting number 1815.

I appreciate any help.

Sir, Just google Farmall wiring diagram and all different diagrams come up. Should cover all different models, magneto to distributor.
6 and 12 volt generators and alternaters

Oldiron29, that's the problem. There seems to be thousands of diagrams, but none of them seem to match what I have. The ones that make any sense are re-drawn, but simply do not match what I have. Any many are not labeled, so I don't know if it has anything at all to do with my Dad's tractor. Keep in mind, the tractor is 700 miles away so I don't have the option of comparing several drawings to the tractor. At least not yet. I was hoping to get more information before I left for the holidays.

Thanks for your response.

Bob M's diagrams are very accurate and easy to follow. I am confidant that he will have one that shows your tractor the way it came from the factory, however, that tractor left the factory more than 65 years ago and who knows how many changes and modifications might have been made in that time.

I've worked on old tractors that I had to go through the electrical system and diagram out how it was wired before I could start troubleshooting it. You may need to go that route.

If it hasn't been messed with (and probably even if it has) go over all the connections and make sure they are clean and tight. Pay attention to the ground connections, particularly the voltage regulator. Check for frayed insulation on the wiring. If it works some of the time, chances are the wires are going to the right places. They just need some clean-up.

Intermittent charging could also mean the generator needs some attention (new brushes and armature clean-up) or the points inside the regulator need attention (light filing with a point file, NOT abrasive paper/cloth).

Thanks to everyone that has replied. I have a new drawing from Bob and lots of direction as to where to start in my troubleshooting. AND, I know what year this tractor was manufactured.

An awesome community! You'll probably hear from me again in a week or so, once I get to Maryland and give this tractor a good lookover.

Again, thank you all very much.
