Re: switch to coil wire size
I love it when someone with more automotive knowledge than I have gives an excellent answer. A average peak load. I would have never thought of looking at it that way and your 100% correct.
After I ran the tractor for about an hour the other evening, the only wire that was warm was the main 10 gauge coming off the alternator. While I was contemplating going to an 8 gauge wire to handle the load (ignition only, which didn't make sense), I discovered the nut holding the wire on to the alternator was loose. Tightening that up solved that problem.
Thank You for your input!!!
