I am having some charging issues with my tractor.  I read a post by Old Blue 120 (page 3, Battery going dead while using tractor) he was helping someone out who was having charging issues but I am not sure I understood the trouble shooting procedures.  The first place I would like to start is with the starter/generator -  there are two  terminals one smaller one on top and towards front of S/G and a larger one towards the rear of the S/G.  With the tractor running I tested these two terminals -  the smaller one towards the front of tractor basically tested nothing but would flip up 1 or so and then 0 again however the bigger terminal towards rear of S/G would test 12+ volts.  With this in mind are my issues with the starter/generator or they farther down the trail of charging system?

Are you sure you have a starter generator?  I'm not familiar with the Ford 100 so I checked the repair manual and it indicates you should have an alternator.   If you do not have a manual or schmatic to go by you can download it from our manuals section.  This is the manual I was looking at.  Hope this helps.

If the engine is original then there should be a S/G

As far as I can tell that makes it a 66 model year.

 

My first test when checking a charge system is to put a multimeter across the battery terminals with the engine running. It should read 13 volts or better at idle. Speeding up the engine should cause the voltage to go up a bit, till the regulator cuts the voltage.

 

I would check all connections to make sure everything is nice and clean before trying any tests. Grounds have to be clean too.
