Ok fellas I finally have it all restored.Just got it running last night.But i have a few problems.I put a brand new water pump on it and it is slowly seeping out of the weep hole.Do i take it off and hopefully not scratch anything or can i put some stop leak in it to stop it from leaking.Then when i hook up the little wire on the starter my gauge shows discharge.I left it 6 volt with a mag.Next question my oil bath has a pin hole in it so before i fill it with oil,do they make a paper insert air filter or not.Thanks in advanced and by the way Steve,the wiring harness is great!!!!! !!!!!,Terry.

Hey, you got the ole' girl runnin' again uh? That's great! Glad you're happy with the harness. Check your connections at the ammeter, sounds like you might just have to swap the wires around. Just had one of my customers with the same problem. Swapped the wires around and problem fixed. He was pretty funny, he said all he had to do was read the instructions. A little JB Weld or a little mix of epoxy should fill that pin hole and you should be good to go on that oil bath! Bummer about the water pump. Last thing you wanted to do is take it apart again. The folks you bought it from I would think should make good, and will probably exchange it for ya. Have fun with that tractor!! Keep in touch! Steve

Stop leak will not fix a leak at the shaft seal. I would think the dealer would replace the pump for free. For the electrical problem check the simple thing first. Is the light switch off? If so remove the cover from the cutout relay and check the points, they should be open with the engine not running and the small wire disconnected at the starter. If they are welded closed you need a relay, if thay are open but close when you touch the wire to the starter you have something hooked up wrong at the generator or in the box. Check down the posts here for a guy named Duey, he has a nice site with correct wiring diagrams and he posts the link most of the time. Also make sure you are wired for a magneto and not battery ignition. The wire from the magneto is simply a ground though the switch.

The charge problem - with the engine off connect the wire, then turn on the lights. If the ammeter shows a charge you simply have the ammeter wired backwards.

If it shows a charge or discharge with the ignition switch and light switch off you've got a skinned wire or some other problem.

The oil bath - a little JB weld on the inside of the cup should fix it right up. My B has some in it and it doesn't leak.

Today's Featured Article - A Towny Goes Plowing - by Anthony West (UK). I live in an area renowned for its rural beauty. Small fields with hedgerows and trees are common place, as are small hamlets with village greens and the odd duck pond complete with swans. The center of any village once the shop is closed is the old tavern. Rustic places with cheerful names like "The Griffin" "Red Lion" or "The Plough and Harrow" are found dotted around the country lanes all over the place. The warm glow of yellowish light can be seen for quite some distance at dusk, and ... [Read Article]
