Re: increasing current over time with electronic ignition

Would this be a possibility ?

Does EI draw more current than points ?

If so, my alternator might not be up to the increased load ?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeNo, the resistance of the coil & if present, the ballast resistor set the current whether points or EI.

I offense, just stating an observation, that you have a fundamental misunderstanding of how electricity works with respect to the way your tractors charge system was designed.
You may or may not also have an electrical problem that could be an overcharge situation ( bad battery cell or bad vreg )

both remain to be seen.

with all due respect, I've been FCC (extra class) licensed for 50 years, I do understand electricity. As I said, I'd done several hours mowing this year without seeing this (dis)charging behavior.

It COULD be co-incidental with the change to EI, but it does raise my suspicions.

Many of us here have HAM licenses..

Back to your issue.

A net wired ammeter is showing CHARGE to the BATTERY.

If your ammeter is reading high.. it's not because of the EI.. and you SHOULD know that with your 50ys of RF experience!

It is telling you more charge current is going to the battery!!!
