Clay, was your tractor a 1966 or 67? If so, the OEM engine had points still.

So i put my meter on the stator and the SSI unit like the site said and got 0 Ohms out of of both the stator and the SSI unit.  :wallbanging:  The switch was replaced but it only had 4 hookups instead of 5 so i'm guessing the switch was replaced and he fried everything.

I'm not sure but I don't think you would because I think that would be for the charging system but don't quote me on that.

Looks like you have an ealier gen SSI module and a 10 amp stator.  You are probably right he put in wrong switch and fried it all.

 

I will say yes to needing a stator for whatever system you add.

 

The Overnight solutions system only needs the battery to start tractor once it's running, you can unhook the battery and it will stay running,.....but you need the signal part fo the stator to keep voltage feed to the new module. so you need that part of the stator to keep her running.

 

If you switch over to a battery-coil ignition like Eds, Miller's or even mine, you need a continually charged battery to keep the coil hot. the module feed wire is deleted on battery-coil ignitions.

 

I saw a 10 amp stator recently on Ebay for a decent price, under $35-40 I think.

Even if you cannot get a reading from the stator feed off the stator, the charge fiedl may still be working, but I have no clue how to tell you. You can email Ed, sometimes he will test them for you if you ship them to him.


  • MH81 and MYMF10 have said thanks

First things first, unplug the switch and jumper the solenoid, watching for spark. you might just have gotten lucky, who knows.

have you gone thru the testing at Ed's Site. we are just hitting the high points, but you need to read the whole thing.

Yea I read the whole thing and printed it out and took it to the shop with me yesterday evening. Every test I ran showed that the stator and ssi module were both dead.

Probably best to do an upgrade then. Better that than throw the engine away. You can't get an engine like that for <$200, so you might as well.

I got lucky last time and found a cheap donor. Check Craigslist lately?
