'49 C electrical problem

When I puchased the tractor, it was "hot-wired"
with no switches being utilzed. I rewired it per
digram, same as others in this discussion. The only difference is that mine was using a voltage regulator located under the fuel tank, in the tool storage area. This had a lead to the starter, and another lead to a terminal on the light/resistance switch. Do I need this regulator?
If so, where do I attach the 2 leads which are coming from it, yet not pictured on the wiring diagram? Help is much apprecited.

Joel,I have a CA with 6 volt voltage Reglator.
I see if I can explain the wiring.The regulator
is replacement for the resistance switch Used
R. S. for light only.One wire from ammeter to
to voltage regulator,two wires from voltage regulator to generator.I Can't tell you the correct connection from V. R. to generator.

I dont think the tractor came with the regulator near the battery box. What do you think it is for? Was the tractor changed to 12 volt? Maybe 12 volts went to the starter and then it dropped from 12 volts thru this regulator to get 6 volts for the ignition or lights? Is the generator, battery, light, 12 or 6 volts. Does it look like the voltage regulator on the generator with a cover and coils inside. Is there a voltage regulator on your generator or was it moved? If this is a ceramic block with three terminals on it? These blocks are available from places like JC Whitney to drop voltage from 12 to 6.

All electrical components are definitely 6V. The "regulator" seems to be as you described (ceramic block with 3 terminals). I think I will try wiring the system without the regulator, just as the diagram shows. Hopefully, I can get the circut complete, and get the tractor running. At that point, I suspect a charging problem will show up! I will inform on my progress. Thanks Steve for your reply.
