CA Generator

I have a CA that runs fine as long as the battery is charged up, but is showing discharge on guage, and dies when battery goes. Wires look ok. Could someone tell me how to check the 6 volt generator to see if it is faulty, or maybe a wiring problem that I can't see.
I appreciate any help.

the generator has two wires, "A" and "F". Quick test is to take a jumper wire and connect the "F" terminal to tractor ground (frame). The F wire goes to the light switch and is grounded thru it, this is a very common problem. If that doaes not work, post again.
--the "A" terminal goes to the cutout box on the generator, and the other side of the cutout goes thru the ampmeter to the battery. jump across the cutout (or check the contacts) to see that this side of the circut is complete, if the F side is grounded and o.k.
---If you have a volt meter, ground the F terminal, then start traactor and measure voltage from "A" to "F". that tests the generator. tell us what you get, then we can give more info.

Check at the cut out or regulator and see if the wire has electricity from the ampmeter. If it has open the regulator and see how the inside looks good so far.check the brushes in the starter, clean the armature use armature paper to clean [not emery paper] clean all wire connections If it has a cut out do the same if more information is needed e- mail me
