I had taken it to a nearby tractor repair garage for engine and hydraulics overhaul. The guys who did this claimed they hadn't done anything to the charging system. In addition to the charging being completely unregulated, I saw some greenish-grey powder all over the glove box and down on the trans housing. (Iron sulfate?) At first I thought I was pleased, since the regulator had been adjusted by some other guys a while back, but had never shown any charging on the ammeter. I thought the battery was just very low and real old.
I may ask for some help with my regulator, which actually regulated properly only for one period of time long ago. It's been a constant irritation.
