8 volt battery in Ford 801

Rich Keana I just took my six volt battery up to the battery distributer. I needed a new battey. He suggested that I Put in an 8 volt in place of my six. He said that is all I have to do. I did it but here is my question. With the tractor off the volts read 8.23v However when I start the tractor the voltage drops to 8.10v Am I screwing up? Would I need a different voltage regulator? Will this work? Thanks much. Rich

Holz I prefer not to install an 8 volt battery in the place of a 6 volt because they are to expensive and hard to find, & I don't believe that they give enough added cranking power for the extra effort & cost. I would rather convert the system to 12 volts. However to get good service from the 8 volt which you installed the voltage regulator will need to be readjusted to keep the new battery fully charged. The reason you are reading lower voltage with the tractor running is because the regulator is cutting out too soon, it was set to charge a 6 volt not an 8. Hope this helps.
