Good point John about the battery cable sizes that I always forget to add. Also, use a good brand battery, an AG 750 CCA is best, GRP 1 6V and not a gold cart/RV type or a Deep Cycle model. Invest in a float charger (not trickle charger) like the DELTRAN Battery Tender Jr. for maintaining a full charge when tractor is not use. The thing which depletes battery plate effectiveness the fastest is the constant discharging and recharging. Also, remember the 9N and 2N 1-Wire starter motor does not use a solenoid. The solenoid wasn't introduced until the 8N 3-wire model in July, 1947.
