Ok you added four more lites on a generator system , NOT GOOD . With the gen system if you have the flat top fender with the four head lites and ONE rear lite you are almost maxed out and you will eat lite switches . If it is the one with clam shell fenders with three factory lites you can add a couple more but here again it will eat lite switches . If you put something like 4509 aircraft bulbs you are over taxing the system off the get go . If you up grade to a Alt. then to do it wright means a total rewire to do it correctly . The main wi9re from the gen back is only a 12 gauge wire , not heavy enough for what and alt . will put out , this you need and 8 ga. main wire Then to add more lites ya need circuit breakers NOT fuses and CV relays and take the load off the lite switch . Our one 706 is still a gen system and works fine with the two head lites and two rear work lites . To get more lite to the ft. i found halogen bulbs that were 50 watt over the 35 's that were factory it helped . We do a lot of night farming and we get by , no we are not going to light up a foot ball stadium but we can see . Myself i would have the gen tested and remove two or three of the extra lites. The Gen on our 706 will do 29-30 amps after it was rebuilt with everything new .
