In Reply to: 9n has a Short posted by Dean on December 22, 2019 at 19:59:32:
Started chasing the short. Cutout relay is fine. I do have a short between the terminal on the generator (single wire) and the positive ground. This is with the wire removed from the generator and checking between the terminal and the tractor frame. Is it time for a new generator?. A little background. I bought this tractor 8 months ago, it had been sitting un protected in the southern Arizona desert for quite some time. It saw extreme heat, rain and snow. (yes snow) I replaced the starter, battery,changed the fluids and filter, rebuilt the distributor, replaced most of the wiring behind the dash ,replaced the gauges as well as the resistor block and and it fired right up and has run fine until now.
