On my 1950 WD I have changed it over from a mag to dist. But I have a couple of questions regarding electrical hook up. I know I have asked this maybe before but I can not seem to locate my notes. Wire going from the starter switch to the coil- what post dose it connect to the - or + then on the other - or + post where dose that wire go? Now on a amp gauge are they all made the same as far as the - and + side? Are all - sides on the right hand side when looking at the back of them? I ask this only do to the fact that my amp gauge has no markings on the back that I can see.

Are you keeping the 6 volt Positive ground system?
If so, then the ignition wire goes to the - side of the coil and the wire from the + side of the coil goes to the distributor.
The pin on the back of the ammeter behind the + sign of the meter is the positive pin so I guess you're "right", that would be the right pin looking at the back of the meter.

Well thank you for the confirmation on the amp gauge. and the info on the coil wires.
Heading down to the barn to hook it all up and hopefully have it running.

The two things you stated probably have nothing to do with the problem.
The engine will run with the coil hooked up backwards but will run better when hooked up right in relation to the ground.
+ ground--- power to - and dist to +
- ground--- power to + and dist to -

If the ammeter is hooked up backwards it will just read wrong. When charging it will read dischaging.

I agree; I simply answered the man's questions.

Yes your reply was right. He made another post after the one you replied to and I didn"t want him thinking that if he had the wires wrong on either the coil or the ammeter it would be causing the smoking problem.
Sorry, I worded my reply wrong. I should have said that these questions you are asking won"t have anything to do with the smoking problem.

Sorry folks but for some DUMB DUMB reason I must have started another post under a different heading on the same issues. The other one is simply WD for the subject. No need worry about offending. Every time I think I have this whole restoration of a working tractor down some one teaches or shows me some thing new.
