Been having a blast tinkering and fixing the prev owners feeble attempts to keep the old girl running..
The 1556 seems to be ready for winter... One thing I noticed is yesterday I had the trickle charger on it,, and it read charged,, I needed the extention cord for awhile for another project, When I went to plug in the charger again It showed it was charging.. It has been on for about 8 hrs. now and and still no full charge.. NOW,, other than the batt. not being the greatest, or not new..Is there places on the tractor that I can check for Amp draw with every thing off ?? and if so what's the best way to go about it ? Should I use a test light or ohm meter ?
What wires on the start switch are hot all the time
would any of the switches be able to draw amps ? with the key off
If I used a test light, and put it on the ground,, then checked for a hot wire would that work ?
I read tinkerers thread about ELEC 101 ( which was exellent by the way ) But read nothing about checking for amp draw..
Any thoughts on this or help would be app. Thanks sodi
