Eric...Thanks for the wealth of info you've supplied on this project! These lights would then be different than the stock 40 lights as these are 9" drum style. Lenses and ring size are very close (but not quite) to the large Ford Model A headlamps. If I can round up the necessary hardware parts I would probably use them as the buckets aren't rusted through and the mounting brackets are correct.

I've seen that starter rod in the parts book. I take for granted that it was a similar set up to the Farmall A's and B's?

Mark - yes, same starter mounted switch and rocker like the A and B tractors. Various folks have reproduced portions of the lighting and starting kit. I have battery box covers. Another fellow has battery box brackets (more of an open frame than a box). Still another fellow has the headlight brackets. I need to do the governor cover for the generator mounting.
