Ok. I have this RF 110 Serial #22,??? can't think of last 3 digits off hand. And need some help with the electrical. I received this tractor pretty much disassembled. I have it mostly reassembled now except for a few wires. I have looked for wiring diagram but cannot locate one for that old of a 110.

The tractor was missing the positive battery to starter solenoid cable and the starter/generator was not wired either. So I got a new positive battery cable today from John Deere and it has an extra smaller diameter wire coming off of one end with a sticker labeled electrical test. Does anyone know where and what wires goes where? Or does someone have a wiring diagram I could take a sneak peek at.

I'd take pictures buy my camera is down. Any help would be appreciated.

Ken, hopefully one of the smart JD guys can help you out. That extra wire may be a new addition to the harness, not original to the 110RF you have. As for the wiring to the charging, (pardon my lack of knowledge here) what engine is in it?

Ken,
The small wire connected to the cable, gets connected to the "BAT" tab of the voltage regulator.

Another cable (6" length) also with a small wire on one end, will be connected to the other side of the solenoid. The small wire connects to the single tab of the voltage regulator. The other end of the cable connects to the "A" terminal of the starter generator.

A wire needs to run between the "F" terminal of the starter generator, and the "F" tab of the voltage regulator.

From the main wiring harness, the brown wire with the F connector, get attached to the single tab of the voltage regulator, along with the wire coming off the solenoid. The red wire from the harness, gets connected to the "L" tab of the voltage regulator. The long pink wire, gets connected to the coil.

Need anymore help, let us know!
Troy

lyall,

That diagram is actually for a 1963 110, and isn't the same as what Ken is needing. Ken needs a digram for a 1965 110, for serial number tractors between 15,001 - 40,000. As you can see in the above diagram, there is no small wire connected to the battery cable.

Thanks for the info. I'll have to wait till it quits snowing and gets a few degrees warmer to check it out. Wish I had a heated garage. Heck an insulated one would work for that matter. Hopefully it will warm up a little this weekend and I'll look into it. Any chance on a wiring diagram?

Btw. Where is the Voltage regulator located. I did not see one but then I didn't look that closely. Is it under battery tray behind the solenoid?

There should be a voltage regulator right next to the celenoid (black box). Some advice, when mounting the voltage regulator to the battery base unit, install it with the three tabs facing up towards the gas tank, and not down towards the frame, like shown in the manuals. Less chance of your throttle cable grounding against the terminals. How these pictures help you with your questions. The wiring diagram is for 1965 110's.

That looks much like my '66 except I have the other tires. The black engine tells me it was long-blocked and they did not install the original green tin or repaint the new one. Mine even had the same muffler on it until I replaced it with a new one from Deere. While not cheap the new Deere muffler make it sound like the 110 from my childhood. Looks like this:
