    ammeter

    I was following the 444 blowing fuses and got to wondering how does one get at that ammeter on my 448? It almost appears that you would almost take 1/2 of the tractor apart to get at it. You sure wonder what those engineers were thinking some time.

    Stan,

    Access to your 448's ammeter is not easy and will likely require you to remove the hydraulic oil tank which means you'll have to move the engine (and hydraulic pump) forward on the frame. Not a simple task but, if you've never pulled the hydraulic oil tank before, it's a great opportunity to clean the years or grime out from that area. While you're at it, I recommend replacing the ammeter with a voltmeter. The wiring will have to be modified slightly to do this.

    Last March I replaced the ammeter with a voltmeter and replaced the hour meter on Hydro's 1986 448. Is your 448 a Case or Ingersoll?
