  • Follow-up on Daughters 2N
  • From earlier post. The problem with the tractor 6V front mount 2N shutting down turned out to be a bad coil as suggested in the previous post. Thanks for the help. Now the tractor does not charge. Generator has just been checked and repaired at the shop. Getting no charge to a good battery. Can I check the cut-out for voltage with my analog tester if I make contact with both terminals at start up? Belt is tight and I did polarize it. All connections were checked and cleaned. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

  • Here is what I did with the analog meter. Checked the battery with engine at half throttle it registered 6V. Checked the generator it registered 7.4V. Checked the Gen. lead at the cut-out it registered 7.4V. Checked the Bat. terminal at the cut-out it registered 6V. Used a jumper wire from Bat. to Gen. on cut-out like Harold suggested and the Amp gauge read charging about 8 amps. Checked the Battery again while amp gauge was charging and it was still 6V. Appears the new cut-out is bad and something else wrong. All connections on the battery have been cleaned.

  • Since the generator was just in the shop it should be fine.

  • First make sure the "good battery" needs a charge. I keep my batteries on maintainers. Frequently, when a tractor in good tune fires right up, I see little or no charge current on the ammeter. This is normal. The maintainer may put more charge into a battery than the tractor system is designed or set to do. My tractors have lights, so I can easily test the charging system just by pulling the light switch. If the ammeter wiggles negative and goes right back to near zero, the charging system just compensated for the additional load, and is working as it should.

  • Is the generator the original 2N-10000 with 'A' Circuit design; 1-Wire/3-Brush type; 11.5 AMP output? Are you just going by the AMMETER or actually measuring battery? May just be a bad ammeter? Do you have a spare cutout to swap out? Just for the record, how did you determine the coil was bad?

  • You can jump around the cutout with it running and see if it charges. If so then I would replace the cutout.
