I didn't know I was going to start all this! I promise I will not bring it up again! Just for the record , I bought a nice original Jube 14 years ago. It was a near perfect original tractor, except it had been converted to 12 volts. Since I was born in 1953 I was very intent on keeping the tractor original. After the usual fluids and gaskets, wiring, points, plugs,tires,hubs, etc., I found an original gen and veg (new old stock) and converted it back. That was 13 years ago, and except for buying a new 6 volt battery last year (12 years from the old) , that is it! So, I don't hate gen & vr's , I just need a better solution for my 5000 after going through that. Thanks for your help and I hope I did't make any of you enemies,

No problem Ed. Just passionate opinion from two different sides. Not to worry.

I think the two camps are roughly divided between the restoration guys who want to keep the tractor original, and the working tractor guys who don't want to deal with problematic parts. At least that's the way it is with me. If I was into restoring my tractor to original, I would want to retain the gen/reg.
