FINAL THOUGHTS, LETS PUT THIS TO BED ONCE AND FOR ALL LOL I've been here 15 years and here to help and correct electrical errors or misunderstandings and promote safety and maybe even save a life based on my Electrical Engineering training and years as a Tractor Dealer IM NOT HERE TO FIGHT OR ARGUE AND TRY TO REMAIN POLITE, COURTEOUS AND PROFESSIONAL I've NEVER been banned or barred so far at least........
That could be true Pete and thanks again to posting that Bulletin, I helped a lot of people finally understand how the 24 volt circuit is FLOATING and CERTAINLY NOT Pos or for that matter even Neg grounded, and how the 24 volt devices (Generator and Starter) windings are electrically insulated and isolated from Ground. ALLLLLLLLLLL 6 and 12 volt Deeres had their POS battery post attached to frame ground and are rightly shown by John Deere (Wiring diagrams and Service Bulletins etc) and Mechanics and Electricians and Electrical Engineers as POSITIVE GROUND. HOWEVER as Service Bulletin 268 and allllllllll John Deere 24 volt Wiring Diagrams show, the 24 volt is certainly NOT POSITIVE GROUNDED and I issue a challenge to anyone to produce a John Deere Service Bulletin or Wiring Diagram that shows or says the 24 volt system is POSITIVE Ground.
Thanks to you fro bringing that Service Bulletin and its proof (24 volt NOT Pos Ground) to light and it now appears everyone I consider as competent, experienced and knowledgeable in 24 volt electrical system, including but not limited to Tx Jim and Buick n Deere (he gives 24 volt seminars at Two Cylinder Expo) and yourself and Ron and 55 and many others AND JOHN DEERE SERVICE BULLETINS AND WIRING DIAGRAMS ALLLLLLL AGREE.
Finally I'm not here to bad mouth anyone who may not (due to ignorance or lack of training or experience or knowledge) understand the complicated 24 volt system or post incorrect opinions HOWEVER when I see a wrong or a life safety issue or a bogus statement I WILL CORRECT IT and if that makes me a bad person so be it
God Bless all here including ones who may be right or wrong (and that certainly includes me NO ONE here current on earth (Christ died a couple thousand years ago remember) is perfect so keep it professional and polite and just try to help those who may be perhaps electrically challenged if they weren't ever formally trained or schooled or experienced in the field.......THAT DONT MAKE THEM ANY LESS OF A PERSON
