Last November I drove my 1949 8N into a shed for the winter. I had the lights on so I know the lights worked then. I then turned off the fuel and removed the battery.
Yesterday I installed the recharged 6v battery and turned the fuel on. When I try to start it, there in not a peep from the starter and when I tried the lights there was no sign of any juice getting there either.
I have power at the ignition switch and also at the solenoid but that is as far as it goes. Where do I go from here?

What is the exact voltage at :

the battery?

the top of the coil?

the solenoid?

Anything less than 6.35 volts at the battery means it's not fully charged.

And even 6.35 volts does mean the battery is good. See tip # 49. Best check that battery.

I checked the voltage at the battery, coil and solenoid and they all read 6.35 volts. I removed the battery and charged it over night and tried again this morning. At 6.9 volts the tractor started just fine. Problem solved with a better charged battery.
Thanks folks.

I did install Battery Tender pig tail leads to my 6 volt battery post clamps. I plug in the Battery Tender every time I park. Keeps the battery at max voltage and hopefully will extend it's life.
