My tractor has a 6 volt system. This tractor is set up with a cut off assembly on the generator and resistor unit in switch that controls voltage. The tractor does not have enough charge in the battery to start and the battery is not being charged when running. The following is what I know:
The cut off on the generator is new.When the tractor is shut down the cut off doesn't cut off. So the battery drains. To make the cut off work I have to remove the negative wire from the battery. The one thing different in the wiring is the short wire from the fuse on the light switch/resistor unit is connected to the positve post on the anmeter. The manual wiring diagram shows this wire should go the the negative post on the anmeter which is connected to the wire coming from the cut off on the generator. When the tractor is running the anmeter is not showing any charging rate.
The generator is fine. It generates only when it is disconnected from the generator wire from the cut off. When the generator wire is connected to the cut off it doesn't generate.
Does any one have ideas what might be the problem?
