Simple question, looking at the pic below which post is the A and which is the F.
When my son first put this tractor back together the wiring was all hacked up. He wired it with the F on the left, front of tractor and A on the right. It started and ran but we could never get it to charge.even though all the static ohm meter tests looked good. Well eventually the head gasket blew, head bolts were loose. I replaced the head gasket got it running but it didn't crank over very well. It kept getting worse and even with a charger it didn't want to crank over. So he ordered a new starter generator. I was putting it back together today and started questioning the wiring. The diagram in the Ford parts manual shows the armature post on the left, front of tractor. I don't trust it though, it took at lot of messing around when he first put it together to determine the voltage regulator diagram had the posts labeled incorrectly. So I stopped, don't want to damage a brand new starter generator. Okay, end of story. If someone can take a quick look at theirs and let me know I'd appreciate it.
