Ok, I've been working on the tractor and installing the alternator.
Generator to 12V Alternator conversion:
So I decided to put on an alternator because my generator seem like it wasn't working no more. I don't know if it was a burnt wire or it was used up. The guy I bought the tractor from said that the tractor was converted to a 12v. Everyone was changing to alternators on these tractors, I've notice. So I looked up for an alternator on the 8N site but it was 144. I kept looking and found a kit from DB Electric in Gray, TN. It came but the instructions wasn't in it nor was a connect pigtail that connects to terminal 1 and 2 and the resistor was broken in half but still together (should I still use it?) nor was the belt that they claim to be in the kit. It's ok though, I'm cool like that but they better watch it (I understand they probably get alot of business).
So, I took yalls advice and went to Advance and got my connector pigtail. It had red and white wires instead of black or brown and red.
Here is the log that I wrote:
The page I printed out said the pigtail connect wires should be (Terminal #1-black or brown)-(Terminal #2-red).
The connector I bought has (Terminal #1-red)-(Terminal #2-white).
I have started my project....
-Connnected the white (#2 terminal) to rear post connector.
-Pigtail the red (#1 terminal) to brown wire (cause I didn't have extra red wire that small), which plugged up to the resistor.
-Got thich red wire and hooked it up to the rear post connector, which went to the terminal block.
-The new coil I got with the kit was smaller than what was already on the tractor, so I left the coil that was already on it on. The brown wire from the coil hooked up to this:
Anyone know what it is? I know when we kept turning over the tractor alot, it got so hot it literally turned red.
Am I doing everything correct?
