Someone stole the battery off my dads old tractor. I went and bought a new 6 volt battery installed it and fired right up. Next time I went to use it the battery was dead. I found out it was suppose to be positive ground. I switched it charged it up and started right up. Next time I went to use it, it was dead again. I charged it up and it would crank over but not start. After charging and cranking a bit I started smelling hot plastic like electrical wiring. The wires going to the amp gauge were pretty hot as well as the voltage regulator. I pulled a plug wire to check for spark and was getting none, put a test light on the coil with the key on and still got nothing. Not sure if I have fried something or not. Would a bad voltage regulator keep it from getting fire to the distributor. Thanks for any help.
