My diesel 1050 Bolens already has an electric starter on it, but the engine never came with a charging unit. I am trying to combine Bolens Equipment with this Lombardini Diesel Engine to keep this as close to original looking as possible and so far its coming along great and I have had it to one show so far, but I was barely able to get it going at that time and now I am trying to refine some things to make it better. I just completed the pto drive pulley setup today to use attachments if I want too and now I am onto the charging system for the tractor. I am in the process of mounting a S/G on it and already have a wisconsin s/g pulley mounted to the engine. I would much rather going this route rather than using an alternator because my funds are somewhat tight and I have a couple extra s/g laying around. Has anyone ever used a s/g as just a charging unit? Or does anyone know how I would wire one up for just charging? I have plenty of used Bolens wiring harnesses to complete the task, but what would I have to change to make it work?
