Welcome to the NTC...we all started somewhere and like you learned a lot along the way. Further your knowledge by going to our HOW-TO's see LINK below -and download this excellent document JMOR created on every conceivable CORRECT way to wire these old Ford Tractors whether original 6 volt/positive ground or a modern 12-volt conversion. many 12-volt jobs are not done correctly, done because other issues are present that impedes starting/running, and thus create more problems. Bypassing the safety neutral starter switch is a perfect example. Many of us veterans also recommend you invest in the essential N-Owner manuals: the I&T F-04 Manual; the 39-53 MPC (Master Parts Catalog); and an original or copy of the 8N Owners/Operator's manual. You can find a ton of info too in the archived posts here -just type in your topic and read the old posts.
