Hi,
Jim Becker has said to not remove any battery cables from the battery when the engine is running, it can damage the generator, the power it makes can't get to the battery with the cables disconnected.

You can buy the serial number plate I posted in my post on page 1 of this post, but the model name and the numbers have to be put on it.

Tim Talleur (tst) sells a serial number plate overlay that can make a faded original plate look very good. I would not remove the original.

The girl is nice to look at but makes a lot of mistakes so be careful following her advice or you will be in more trouble, do not remove battery cables while its running as it can damage the charging system, read charging voltage at the battery posts, the system is positive ground

dennis/1946 wrote:. . Do they mean ground as negative on the battery or ground as the positive side. To me ground was always ground, negative. But I;m assuming when they say ground they are talking positive, correct?

"Ground" means the battery cable that is connected to the chassis. Positive, negative, whatever you call the battery posts, ground is connected to the chassis/frame/battery box/engine block.

Another hazard of disconnecting the battery while it is running is the possibility of creating a spark that can make the battery explode.

Yes, I did not disconnect the battery while running. I I don't know why this post isn't linked to the original post, possibly the admin can link them together. Somebody wanted to see my ID plate form the other link. I will leave the original plate on . I have to put my hood on and see if my lights are working. so far so good. I appreciate all the help. I had no idea the information that is on this site. Last question, Should I invest in a cutout or just leave the regulator on, thoughts?

Since your system seems to be charging now, I would not replace the regulator with a cutout. The regulator should give you better behavior of the system. You can't (generally) buy new cutouts like the originals anyway.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.
