I replaced all of the wiring and many of the electrical components on my 2N. The battery holds a charge just fine when I install it and do not run the tractor. However, as soon as I run the tractor then the battery drains. I have tried two different round can cutouts and this occurs with both of them. An interesting observation is that the ammeter reads 0 when I first install the battery. If the turn the ignition key to on then it slightly bumps up. When running, the ammeter reads around -10 at half throttle. After shutting off then the ammeter reads +20. Hence the battery drain issue. If I disconnect the battery and reconnect then the ammeter goes back to 0. If I jump a wire across the cutout to polarize the generator then the ammeter goes back up to reading +20. It seems obvious that it is a cutout issue...I am just not sure what the solution is...any suggestions? Thank you!
