Repairing generators on those things is a lost cause... Between the drive you need and the generator and regulator you're going to need you'll have as much money into it as an alternator kit with the added bonus that with the generator... you'll get to do it all over again, sooner than later. I don't think I've ever seen one of them charge longer than 3 months from having had all new components installed.

I agree with Rod also. Reliability of that system has been made even worse with the parts now coming from overseas.

Gotta agree with Rod on this one, with all the parts you're buying, I'd go alternator.

I've got one 5000 got converted about 3 years ago, it's great. when it still had the generator, that tractor would need a new regulator every 5-6 months...or whenever hay season rolled around and I needed it daily.

But I've got another 5000 still has the genny, and that one has not been worked on electrically in 2-1/2 years.

Got a recently acquired 4000 that's not charging...nothing even if I full field it. If all it needs is brushes, I'll try the generator for a while, anything beyond that and it's getting an alternator.

Good luck
