Not sure what the switch looks like on a case but I managed to disassemble and repair a switch from aMF 8. Here is a link to the thread and some pics of what I did.

RE: "But also I need to know where that single post on the backside of the regulator goes to that one of my major snags."

 

The following is from the parts manual for the 444:

 

S/N 9648801 to 9661261:


Wiring on 444.jpg

 

Regulator Wiring 444.jpg

 

The single post on the back of the regulator has two wires connected to it:

 

1) one goes to the solenoid (#15 on the diagram above)

2) the other goes to the "Generator" light on the dash (#10 on the diagram above)

 

Here's a 30 sec. clip from my machine.

Got a pic of that regulator? How many wires going from the alternator to the regulator? How many connectors on the regulator? I think some regulators have the 12V DC on the back side.

 

The Case tractors (at least the model I have) has a starter generator. One wire goes between the regulator and starter generator and the other goes between the solenoid and the starter generator.

As far as I know they all have SGs, I've found people new to the industry knee jerk and call them alternators.

Since I don't have a Case nor have seen pics posted here showing a S/G, I just assumed it had an alternator in the engine! Pics can help folks diagnose these kind of problems!!!

Well I believe moosetails nailed it with the youtube video I have the same wiring diagram in my manuals but I have the 1975 GT and it had the voltmeter. but I could not tell by looking at the wiring diagram if the wire on the back of the regulator went to the solenoid post or grounded to the mounting bolt for the solinoid. thanks all you guys I think I will have her up and running tomorrow I really enjoy putting a question up on this Forum you all are really great about helping out I am lucky to be able to pick your brains I do learn something new everyday thanks all

Well the old girl never sounded so good I even put a new plug in her Man that is one sweet running old machine. I really want to thank you guys I only had 1 problem and when I can get the original keyswitch that will be fixed but my headlite is on all the time its running . But other than that shes like a new penny. I can Idle her down like a old harley and she just chugs along I am impressed I did get another K321 motor that I am going to rebuild. But I will put it on a shelf and my kids can put it in after I am old and gone. Well thanks guys for all your advice I really love this old girl now
