I finally got the lights to work, but does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 1942 Farmall H with 6 volt mag system and two head lights and one headlight for the back impliment side? The tractor starts right up, but I do not have a clue where all the wires should go. the previous owner was no mechanic!!! Should I use all 12 guage wire? I want to make it like it was originally! thanks, I need to know how the wires should go from the generator to the voltage regulator and how they tie in to the foot starter switch and so on. thanks, Rich

If you are going to use #4 better put a wire from the F on the Gen to the F on the cut-out or it just wont work. You cant get the gen to charge without a wire from the gen to the cut-out.

The mag is, as I stated, not connected to anything but the mag Kill switch in the electrical box. (push pull, on off switch)
That switch is a single terminal switch that grounds the wire attached to it when the switch is pushed in, and opens (allowing mag operation) when pulled out.
No modifications are made to any part of the ignition Mag or grounding switch or the single wire running to it.

Assuming a three wire SI10 GM delco alternator.

The alternator should be connected as follows:
a #10ga wire connects to the big "bolt on" terminal on the alternator. From there it is connected to the amp gauge, on the load side of the gauge (the side not attached to the Battery + side through the Starter Switch) Using a Fuse link saves burnt parts and fires. NAPA has them, (crimp on, not solder) JimN
New diagram for mag and alternator
