Accualy like I said in the post it is a Generator(6vt). Just started with this problem in the last little while. Was brand new when I did the restore in 06 and has had a lot of use. I plow my and 3 other neigbours all winter. It is a long winter here. 5 Months give or take.Like I said it takes quite a bit of rpm to get the winding excited. After it starts it charges like normal.Wanting to know what to look for. Just had a brain wave while posting. Maybe I should go look for the obvious, the belt tention.HMMMM.

100 mile Bruce,

My 2N does the same thing. It seems slow to charge.I replaced the belt with a ribbed belt and it did not really help. Tightness can be a problem as mentioned by another forum member. I run an old Wincharger system at my man cave in northern Minnesota and have worked on 6 volt generators for about 50 years give or take. You mentioned the tractor has seen a lot of use so your commutator may have to be cleaned up a bit. The spaces between the copper bars used to be mica.The spaces may have to be cleaned if the copper has worn down riding more on the spacing material than on the commutator bars. I cleaned one of my Wincharger generators and it helped a lot. Hope this helps!
Mr. T. Minnesota

If in fact a generator system it should charge from the get go so yep good chance it is a ops thing and the belt is loose. If it is not the belt then your brushes maybe going bad and the generator needs to be repaired and new brushes installed
