Well, finally got my new tractormeter working with my 12 volt alternator. First bought an alternator from Bill at Howard Enterprises which had a tach drive:

I bought a new Tractormeter and cable and hooked it up. Using a dwell meter the tach ran 25% higher RPM than engine was running. The pulley on the alternator was 3.20" diameter so I needed a 4.00" to reduce the alternator RPM buy 25%. I found a Powermaster 182 (4.00")aluminum racing pulley that fit perfectly. After replacing the pulley the tach is about as accurate as one can expect, maybe within 50 RPM's. I have the idle set around 700 RPM and the alternator still puts out over 13.5 volts. Bill at Howard was great to work with and definitely has a great product for those who want to do a 12v alternator conversion yet want to keep the original tach operational.

Thank you! This just might get the proofmete back on her Fergy TO-20. Now to get the financing dept stamp of approval...HA!
It"ll just take a while. Her tractor is a money pit in comparrison to then others I have purchased.
Just have to turn a ford or two to finance mo" parts.
