JD 111, battery keeps dying---
Posted April 30, 2011 - 09:48 PM
does anyone out there know why the battery on my jd 111 keeps dying if the electric pto clutch is engaged.
previous owner had a 12 hp bs engine put in and says that is when his troubles started. he seems to think that the pto draws too much power so battery is not charging up? true? maybe this is so, since the 'parts' 111 i picked up today(with headlights and the clutch) also developed a problem-so the seller told me when- you guessed it, the same 12hp motor was installed a few yrs. ago.
any info on this would be appreciated. but a solution would be Greatly appreciated....
by the way, today we had a mini snow storm in my little town in Manitoba? what the he-----double hockey sticks?

i did look into the different connector ends from stator-old one had a very light green but replacement engines in both 111's have the black and red.
so i assume not enough power for clutch,
and i read somewhere that the stator and flywheel can be simply put on to new motor. is this correct?
but, as always, i do not see any 'diodes' that are supposed to be inline.... here is a pic. of the 'parts' 111...
can i get these at the dealer(or somewhere che aper perhaps?

i will look for the 'bump' in wire,
and i think i will install an ammeter(which i wanted to do anyway) and like you said, it should show me exactly what happens when clutch is on.....
and about the alternator swap----which is where i'm heading i think anyway, ---- i suppose the flywheel has to be changed as well?
again, thanks ,
