Can someone check the wiring that I finished on my T 63 ? I also made a wiring diagram that maybe easier to read . Let me know if it is right before I hook it up. It is a positive ground wiring. Thanks Vince

Positive ground was pretty much ended, in this country, in the 1950s. This bothers me that you are trying to use it on a newer machine. Did you check a Bush Hog Manual? Good Luck, Rick

 

I sit corrected. I found the owners manual and it shows positive ground and the same drawing. That is weird. Now, I will have to check these more closely just in case some of my others did that.

I've been wondering about this exact same "issue" on my D-4-7. It's not in front of me at the moment, but if memory serves me correctly, the positive cable coming off of the battery connects at the mounting bolt on the generator starter (which would be a ground). I'll take a picture and post it.

Is the rest of the wires hook up the way it is supposed to be ? I just don't want to burn something up. Does anybody have a T 63?

My 1966 Bush Hog D-4-7 also has Positive ground which I found a bit puzzling at first. First picture shows positive cable from battery going to mounting bolt on generator/starter. Photos 2 and 3 show negative cable from battery and termination of same cable at back of push button ignition switch. Pics 4 and 5 show continuation of negative cable coming from other side of push button switch and terminating at generator/starter connection. I've never measured it, but is the juice (DC voltage) coming out of the generator at a negative or positive potential? I assume it is negative. Thanks, Paul  ps- to make things even more complicated, I've also learned that these Delco/Remy generator/starters can have either a clockwise or counter clockwise rotation (on Cub Cadets) depending on the configuration. This begs the question (or questions),  Is there any nomenclature on these starter/generators that designates them as being clockwise, counterclockwise, and positive or negative generating? And...... can you easily convert a clockwise generator into a counter clockwise or a negative into a positive? Just wondering? Thanks again.

My T-63 has negative ground, and all appears factory.
