If you hold a wrench against the back of most alternators when it's running the wrench should be attracted to the alternator which would indicate that its charging. If it isnt' charging then the regulator inside the alternator is burnt (typically) if it is charging then check the wires to & from the alternator.

Battery isnt getting charged by the mower. and it runs dead. I jump it, and start it and the PTO will engage for a bit, but as the battery runs dead, PTO isnt getting appropriate voltage. What charges...

40b7c2b.jpgTry to always list the model number. Something like 917289472 would be the model number. Here is a wiring diagram for that model. Note the test voltages with unit running. Check the wiring from the regulator to the ignition switch and from the switch to the battery. It is possible for the ignition switch to be bad and keep it from charging. Test at these terminals with voltage tester. You should have more than 12 V at the regulator( diagram says 9-16 volts). If you need the manual you can go to and download diagram. Enter YOUR model number. Good luck!

Mower doesnt charge battery. does stay running after charge from charger what goes bad to have this happen


Check and clean all of your connections at your solenoid back to "shiney and bright". That sounds like the problem.

My 2n tractor only puts out 3-4 charging. The

The 12 v conversion is the way to go. 6 v is a pain. It's getting harder and harder to get parts, and running off of battery power leaves a lot to be desired, especially if you've ever had to haul a dead battery back to the barn. I had a Farmall model "B", 1947, 6 volts. 12 volts was like a whole different tractor. Just my humble opinion!

,when pull the knob to engage blades it doesnt work or they don't

When the tractor has not been run for a hour or so use a meter and check the battery voltage. Then start the machine and check the battery voltage. The voltage should be higher when running. Normally 12.5 to 14vdc. Any higher then your voltage regulator in not working and your cooking your battery. Lower and the charging system is not working. If it has a dedicated alternator then it or it's voltage regulator is bad. Usually the voltage regulator is built in to the alternator and can't be changed by itself. Check your parts manual if one is listed by itself.
