I had a working 3 position switch... I can't tell if it is still working or if something else is wrong.
I know that the light switch position works. But after mowing the other day, I barely made it to the shed on my 6volt battery.
Ammeter was showing 0 amps or less. Battery is OK by a hygrometer (float spindle type, not little balls). Ammeter shows no charge or 0 amps in all positions on the switch.
I have used a v/ohm/resistance tester on the switch. Light position works, but other terminals show no change in resistance from the off position (I don't know if I am checking across the correct terminals).
Other possibilities... Oil on generator (leaky valve cover gasket)? Oil in generator (no cover over the holes)? Could I have simply grounded the generator?
