Well I still can not get that freaking terminal loose from the regulator/rectifier. I have tried prying and pulling till I am going to break it but its still locked on. Previous owner definitely glued it with something, maybe it kept coming loose for him? Anyway, I decided to insert straight pins into the AC wires coming from the stator just to get a quick reading of the voltage. I got 26 volts AC but I was just laying the lead on the pins so I think the stator is good. I checked the 2 yellow wires coming out of the regulator/rectifier and they were at 12.34 volts DC. All the wires at the various switches were also at 12.34 volts as well as the battery. This is while the tractor is running at WOT. Shouldn't I have more like 13.5 volts at the battery in order for it to be charging? Any suggestions? Adam
You should have 13.5 - 14.5 volts at the battery in order to charge the battery. That connector could have corrosion built up on the terminals causing high resistance. Soak it in some PB blaster and see if that helps get the connector off.
