Hello everyone I have a ford 140 with breakerless ignition and it is not charging any ideas? I was wondering if it is the voltage regulator.

Could be, it could also be the ammeter or the starter generator. Simplier yet it could just be the wiring has a bad conection. I have the same problem on my Jacobsen Chief 800

This tractor has seperate starter and I believe it is a flywheel alternator. This tractor dosent have the belt driven starter generator. When on ampmeter shows little change but with electro hydralic deck lift ampmeter declines servely. Is there any way there is a problem with the fly wheel magnets? Ps the tractor runs perfectly I belive the ignition system works with the charging system on this tractor.

Check in the engine manual. You can download it from our Manuals section. There is also a good technical tip in our technical section on how to test your charging system. I doubt that you have both a started/generator and a flywheel alternator unless it is a newer engine. It is probably just a S/G with a regulator. Good Luck, Rick
