Re: Garden Tractor Basic Electrical Series

Great idea with the schematic tutorial! That will give people the power to understand it on their own machines!

Very nice job, Larry! Did not see that you were putting this together.

Well, moderator gents, let's get the flypaper out and decide where we're going to stick this great thread!

It's a great place to spend some time every day!

Re: Garden Tractor Basic Electrical Series

You know what would be real handy Larry is to make a video on "How to use a digital Multi-Meter". Just the simple things that you can do to check wiring with a Multi-Meter.
I know I would like to know how to use one correctly.............KJD

Thanks Brad, Mods..... I am saving all the url's so I can attach all in one final seperate post once I'm Finished. This way someone dosn't have to scroll through all the seperate posts to find what they need.

I like the idea of a Schematic Turtorial and a How to use a multimeter

I'll work on those after I finish up with the Alternator Vids.

Thanks All

Re: Garden Tractor Basic Electrical Series

Nice Videos! I watched the first three because I'm having troubles with my tractor. Will not hold a charge on the battery at all.

I'm not much of a mechanic but I'm trying to learn and must say your video of the AMP gage was great. I had no idea how to read that gage. I know mine never moves. So I'll have to dive into the rest of your videos to trouble shoot my tractor. I'm on my 3 new battery... ouch..
