Nice TED20 tractor Charles. But my TEA20 has higher compression, uses unleaded, not kero, has a chrome gear lever and throttle, therefore does wheelies and goes much faster! :lol:
I'm hopeless at wire gauges. I usually look for the thickest practical wire, then go thicker! The only current of significance in the system is from the generator to regulator and battery, 11 amps maximum generator output and from the battery to starter and for that you need the thickest leads you can get.
If you plan on running lights keep in mind the generator output is only 11 amps maximum (11 amps x 12 volts = 132 watts), so anything bigger than 45 watt light globes and you could end up with a flat battery, especially if the engine is operating at low RPM. I'm actually looking at replacing my 50 watt light globes with LEDs.

P.S. Charles, what year is that TED20? Interestingly the bell housing behind the starter motor is different to my TEA20.
