While they can be troublesome, once you get them repaired, they pretty much work for 30 to 40 years. So.. if you want to fix the generator and try a couple of voltage regulators, you will get it done. I find its usually the vr that is bad, but have replace a couple of gennys and several gears on the tack drive. And then, they work perfectly. Seems the vr's are aftermarket, made in India or Turkey or somewhere and they are either bad out of the box, or will work fine. Be patient.

That may happen in your southern texas environment.... but it doesn't happen here. I've never observed anyone have anything but misery with one of those gens... and if you buy the tractor used it's almost certainly not charging if it has a gen. The only way you get to fix and forget for 40 years is if you don't need it charging.
