Working on wiring my wd45 ...12 volt system, alternator. I understand most of the wiring except the alternator. One wire comes back to the positive side on the ammeter (Correct)One marked Batt w/ the jumper? On a diagram I downloaded it shows the other wire coming back to the acc. on the switch. My switch only has two terminals.I'll put power to the switch from the ammeter, other side of the switch to the coil. Where does that second wire off the alt go to?What is the purpose. Thanks in advance

Kevin, We have electrical switches, and components in stock if ya need any parts for your conversion. Be happy to help ya out with parts or info. The diode that Duey refers to is a basic 50volt/1 amp diode available at Radio Shack or an electrical store. We have a modular plug-in diode kit available. If interested, drop us a line....

You can hook it to the same post as the coil wire IF you install either a warning light or a diode in the alternator wire. This stops a backfeed from the alternator that keeps the engine running after the key is off. The automotive switch with acc. does the same thing by seperating the coil wire from the alternator wire.

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
