6518 Headlights

Recommended Posts

I have tried everything to get the lights to work. Bulbs are good, lines are good, but they just aren't working. I'm nothing close to a electrician and have no clue what to do. The last thing I want/have to do it take the dash off, that is a royal pain. While my dad was trying out the tractor the lights when on, but then shut off and I just can't get them to work. Any help would be great. Thank You

I think I would take a test light , ground it out to the battery and start at the lights and work my way back to the light switch checking to see where you have power. I recently had to replace my toggle switch because there was power going in but none coming out. The toggle seemed to function great with no sign of trouble but it was dead as a doornail.

Hi, As I remember the 5200 family had the dual circuit alternator and the lights ran off of an AC winding that only had power when the tractor was running. I am not sure, but think the 6500s were this way also. This from memory and may not be correct. Al Eden

You might also want to check out the ground, if there is a rusty or corroded connection the lights also will not work. You can also use your testlight to check this by placing your clip lead on the positive terminal of the battery and working your way back to the source of the ground.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
