The Farmall 300 (row crop) had the battery under the seat. I've made a battery carrier much closer to the starter. Now, to get more room between the seat and the dash, will an old style seat (perhaps from a Farmall H or M) fit? Are there mounting places/bolts to use on the Farmall 300 platform? Thanks, kelly

Dont know for sure but I would tend to doubt it. That said Im sure you could rig up an adapter plate that bolts to to holes that held the battery box.
H&M seats used a pair of 5/8 bolts to hold them

There are no other bolt holes in the deck other than those that bolts down the battery box. Take the two bolts out and tip the seat back and use a flashlight to see them. To put a an H..M style seat on like you propose you would need to make a plate to bolt down to the platform which would be nearly the rectangular size of the current battery box. And I would suggest putting 5/8 in. studs in it to alleviate the possibility of the bolts threads stripping out. I do not think a 3/8 in. plate would be heavy enough for this purpose. In fact I would bet a 1/2 in. plate would flex with a heavy guy on the seat.

Why do you need more room between the battery box and the dash?

If you are swinging your leg through there to get in the seat, stop. The way to properly mount these tractors is to swing your leg over the BACK of the seat.

Swinging your leg through in front of the seat, you inevitably kick the key as you're getting off the tractor, so the next morning you come out to a dead battery and a burned up coil. You can also kick the gearshift out of gear, causing the tractor to roll away while you frantically try to untangle your foot from the shifter and get in the seat to stop the tractor before you roll into something.
