There's not much to troubleshoot when pretty much every piece of the charging system has been replaced. I agree with Rod - stop throwing good money after bad and convert to an alternator. You will not regret it.

`More often than not, I have to set the "cut out relay" on a new regulator to get it to start charging.. Had to do it just two weeks ago.. and... then.. its good for 40 years. Don't know why they come that way, don't care, just fix it and move on.. Its more common than not now days.

I wouldn't be so sure about the 40 year part. I wouldn't give it 40 days.

Spot on... and if you were having a real good day there might be a call waiting for you by the time you got back to the shop...

It's amazing how I don't miss parking the tractor on a hill so I can coast it and dump the clutch, or lug around booster cables all of the time or keep it parked on a battery charger or buy a new battery every other winter... The price of a 4DLT alone now days just about pays for that alternator kit. Even a sub par generator that sort of works will kill those batteries in a couple of years. Amazing that even an Exide junker will last 10 years with a proper charging system.
There's just absolutely nothing I regret about buying a Delco alternator and installing it on a Ford tractor... I've only got one left with a Magnet Marelli and I doubt that will go a whole lot longer either...

I once had a customer with a 5000 who insisted on continuing to replace his generators and regulators. Later, he had me coming out and changing them, thinking he was doing something wrong. My "repairs" would always last for only a short while, and then he would be back on the phone. By the time we had replaced every charging system related piece multiple times, he was starting to get frustrated with ME. And yes, I was polarizing the generator every time.

Finally I had had enough, and told him to convert. When he hesitated, I then told him to go find someone else to work on it - I simply refused to. From then on, I arm twisted nearly every customer who ever had a problem with that nightmare system from hell to make the conversion. Most agreed with me and did it.
