  • Cheating on Blue
  • Well, the PO said he got the tractor broken and always had to disconnect the neg batt cable and he never fixed it. I played the game until I pulled the 2008 marine battery out of it three days ago. Then while putting in the new group 26 battery, I ran a volt meter between the neg cable and post. 12 volts no problem, about 1/2 an amp. Not playing with this poor Demonstrator that has even been insulted with a MOPAR ign coil. This will suffice until I get a round tuit.
    Currently God has allowed me enough tuit's that I am not too sure of which way to go.
    That poor blue demonstrator is not going to a show this year or probably not even next.
    Some day though, She shore do deserve to go...
    At least a few local shows.

  • For an industrial quality disconnect switch, get a Cole Hersee model 2484. NAPA sells them as part number SW181, but they are selling on Ebay for a lot less. A keyed version is available. There is a Pollak version also on Ebay. There are knockoffs on Ebay, but be careful about quality.

    I have these on various pieces of heavy equipment, including a D8 Cat. They are bulletproof, but more expensive. I think they are built to a military specification.

  • The ground side the typical system typically has a lot less arcing when turn on/off switches and relays. You could put this on the pos side, but after a few throws, the contacts would start to get burnt just a bit. The wife's Fergy has a master electrical disconnect on the ground side. A bit better looking than this slightly garish monstrosity. Just dont throw the switch when it is still running. Alternator's do not like being thrown into a full open circuit.

  • Where did you find that type disconnect? I can only find the "screw" type around here!
