have a 330 made into a 332 I have not been taken care of it very well.
I can't find the ser # anywhere. I traded it for a 5 yr old 318 back in 1979-1980 it had .2 hrs on it. it now has 323 hrs. In 38 year I have kept my filters very clean. I am now putting on my 3rd air filter. Battery not charging I don't know why.

Good to be here

Bernie

Welcome to GTtalk. Hope you enjoy the place and find the information you are looking for.

Have you checked the voltage coming out of the stator? Or the regulator?

Nice to have you here. It could be your regulator/rectifier, or the alternator itself. I would start by checking all the connections as they can get corroded over the years. Make sure you have a solid chassis ground. Check the alternator windings to make sure you have continuity. I assume your battery is OK. If you can check the AC voltage going into the regulator then that will tell you if the alternator is working.
Good luck getting it repaired.

Bernie - What do you have on your 3PT hitch in the picture? Is it some sort of adapter for towing the trailer?

Yes please, let us see more pictures. I have a 24" worksaver 3pt hitch scoop that I used as a poor mans loader when I had my x475. It looks different than the profile shot of your scoop. I have a loader on the 2320 but I still use the scoop frame with a homemade rake/scarifier to loosen up the driveway before grading it.
