Or is everyone just too full of Christmas turkey? Maybe too busy blowing snow.
What have y'all been doing with your AC/Simplicity tractors. I have been hiding inside most of the time from the foul weather but managed to finish my engine transplant in Sweet Allis, my 3414, to include a complete re-wire and new dash to accommodate an ammeter. Mounted my Johnny Bucket Jr and moved my compost pile. New 16 hp engine runs smooth and strong but I am concerned that the stator is not charging my battery. We will see in the next few weeks if it will keep up. I suppose it is the regulator as it it appears to be puttion out about 1/2 amp on DC but has full power on AC circuit. Looks like pulling the engine again is in the cards.

It's been quiet, that's for sure! Glad you got it running again. Make sure your connections are good on the charging circuit.

I have checked the voltage/amperage at the pigtail on the engine, so the next step would be to go behind the shroud. Don't look forward to that because I have to pull the JB harnesses to get the hood off. If I do that I will be looking at doing a modification on my grill to allow the plugs to pass through.

Is the regulator/rectifier on the shroud? Might be that if the AC is within limits. Or a connection there!

The engine is a 326437-2527-01 and has the dual voltage pigtail and rectifier/regulator under the shroud. Battery is relatively new and strong.
4644D685-29F1-4B07-A56D-F74090F46FAA-402
It could be a connection under the shroud but either way it means pulling the engine.

Just got in form blading slush off the driveway with my ford. Sitting here watching John Wayne in Mc Clintock while waiting for the kids to get here for lunch. Those are some nice Ac gts, hope you get them figured out.

Haven't had time to even look at the tractors for the last couple of days and probably won't until at least Tuesday afternoon at the earliest.  :(

Phil your tractor turned out very nice. They make a good looking pair.  :thumbs:

Make sure you have a good connection from the regulator chassis back to the battery - terminal. If you have even a small amount of resistance it will prevent the charging circuit from working properly. With all newly painted tin on the engine perhaps you are not getting a good connection.

I'll pull the negative ground running from the battery to the block and scrape the contact surface clean. That would be cool if it solves my issue.

I'm still here too Phil!  Just not done anything with my Allis 620 except to move it to get the manure spreader out of the barn.  I do need to get it in the shop over the winter to fix the right side brake.  That side has no brake action at all.  I love having steering brakes when I'm tilling, as even with the heavy 620, the front end gets light with the tiller on the back.
