In the world. Saturday morning at 6am the alternator went out in my pickup 10 miles from home. Good friend jumped me 3 times to get it town. Replaced the alt, broke off the plastic overflow and the radiator. Drilled it out, tapped it and replaced with brass. Did chores and went home about 130. Went back out to do evening chores and it wasn't charging. After cleaning all the terminals and reading horror stories on you tube I yanked the hot wire off the batt and it died. Took it in to the big city since the local auto parts was closed and sure enough tested 12.3. Rated for 14.6. Replaced it again. Fast forward to Monday, installed replacement starter on 1105 Massey, she fired up. Ran about 5 minutes and gelled up....can we fast forward to spring?

Never yank any terminal off a battery, when an alternator is in the system. You blew the diodes out when you did that...

I'm in agreement with all you guys. Hate it when things snowball like that. Took the back cover off the walk behind snowblower to replace sheared cotter pin in the clutch rod. Found a bad crossshaft bearing. Looked a bit further and saw the auger drive belt coming apart so split the blower to replace. Then found the auger drive pulley was loose and wallowed out on the impeller shaft. Noisy idler bearings, worn out impeller shaft bearings. You get the picture. Machine is completely tore apart and have lots of new pieces ordered. Come on Spring, hurry the heck up !!

Know what you mean. Drove the backhoe over a something and bent the oil pan up and the oil pickup tube. Think motor is alright. But it has started leaking oil nearly everywhere. Spring better hurry up!

I'm out in this nasty cold trying to get tractors ready for spring. I can't figure out how things that didn't leak in October are leaking now when they haven't been run. I've had about the same luck with machinery lately, but no charging issues. Those about push me over the edge.

let's see the 666 is down for an engine overhaul so I don't have a tractor with tire chains for hauling Manure. The 986 is down with hydraulic issues so I'm hauling manure with a borough 1066. because I have no tractor with chains I have to stack all the manure. The barn cleaner is frozen daily. The silo unloader is frozen twice a week. The augar pit is frozen twice a week.I had to put a heater in the well pit to keep the pipes from freezing, never had to do that before. the Kawasaki diesel mule is gelling up so when I need to split firewood I have to move the splitter from the garage over to the house by hand, or push it with the Bobcat. I am running out of places to pile snow. I would be glad to trade problems with you.

Sounds like you are are on your own 10 yard line, 4th down and 40 to go for a first down. I suggest that you punt.
OR hang in there and do the best that you can. We all have trying times and get discouraged but we keep going somehow. In a couple of months it will be all forgotten and we will have a new set of problems.
REMEMBER, when the going gets tough, the tough QUIT.

I have always said that there is a VERY FINE line between stone cold determination and not having brains enough to know when you are beaten.Right now I am so far over that line I can't even see it anymore..

Years ago, living in Bay City, MI, I had a GMC Safari minivan and went through 8 alternators from Murreys (since bought out by O"Reillys)and got really good at replacing them, all rebuilt. I finally told them I want a Delco, enough is enough, never any trouble with the alternator after that.I had plenty of trouble dealing with the rear axle seals that would blow out like clockwork every 50,000 miles, the vent was not plugged, never did find out what was the cause. Then the rear brake shoes would be ruined when that happened.
