Well to start off with that tractor was NEVER a 24 volt system . So you either have it wired wrong at the batterys to start with . Now IF it has Glow PLUGS then it never came from the factory with and alt. on it , so it has been Barn yard wired . I have all factory wiring on a lot of the tractors that i use to work on on disks and also in my computer , but the problem is that i am no computer wizz and now that my youngest has left the nest i do not know how to pull them out or even send it to you . That tractor came from the factory with TWo 6 volt batterys and was wired for 12 volt it ain't a John Deere The later 706's that came with the alt. had the 310 German diesel and NO glow plugs . So you have a 282 with glow plugs . Yes and alt. can be used BUT then you need to do a rewire as the Gen wiring is not enough as the main wire from the gen to the reg was a 10 ga. and with and alt. they were and 8 Ga. So what you have is probably a rats nest that has been hacked on mickey moused and cobbled on over the years . And you can either get a new factory harness or you can set down and make up a new one from the get go , as i have had to do on may . Just redid my 806 here a month ago or so and made it up in less time then it would have taken me to drive down and order it and drive back . But i have been doing this kind of stuff for over 40 years .
