Is an old WC supposed to have functional headlights?

OK, so the last picture was taken while hooked to the battery charger! Now there is a battery and a functioning generator and she's ready for an elegant night on the town, so long as you're not embarrassed to use the hand-crank - Still need to work on the starter.

Some WC tractors made during WWII had Auto-Lite starters, these required a switch that is no longer available. Here you see what it looks like in the shop manual.

And here you see what the hard to find reproduction switch looks like

 

Back out on the farm for a photo what a great day!

 

The "Coming Home" parade in West Allis WI we drove through what used to be part of The Allis Chalmers Manufacturing Company

Here's the WC and the trees all decorated for Christmas
