1- How many amps can you pull through these?
2- The acc. outlet is it connected directly (no contactor) to the battery pack?
3- What size fuse is in the acc. circuit and where is it?
4- Can you use a 36volt golf cart charger, and charge the battery pack through the accessory outlet?

I bought a 36v golf cart charger for mine but failed to get it hooked up to the current battery pack, but the accessory plug might work to charge thru. Check the volt rating on the connectors, they should have an amp rating, so that would be the first limit, the second is the amp rating of the wire gauge, and then if those check out you may be able to get away with it.
The charger I have is a Clarke 25amp unit, if the acc outlet is hooked to the battery pack direct through a fuse and you have the right polarity it should work if the fuse in the circuit is more than 25amps, but where is the fuse?

So it can be done as long as I have the right polarity.

The cruise works both speeds, and the PTO solenoid works, nothing hooked up to it yet.
The chargers works, it's noisy and the dial on it goes around and around, not sure but I don't think it's suppose to do that.
The meters work, the lights and lift are not, something to check out, there are 2 smaller wires under the seat that I don't know where they go, these are not the seat switch wires but something else.
You know the guy I bought this tractor off of told me it was a working and I'd say he was right, a man of his word I won't hesitate to deal with him again.

The chargers dial moves on it's own down to off, not sure if it shuts off, find out tonight.
Hooked up the 2 wires under the seat to the right spots on the batteries, lights are 12volt, lift is 18volt and now the lift and lights work.
Overall not too bad, some stuff to fix but what can you expect from a 37yr old tractor, I like it.

1- Need 1 of the hanger arms for the mower deck, suppose to have 4 but only got 3
2- Front main accessory mounting bracket, the one I have is for front mount mower deck tractors (short wheelbase), I need the one for mid mount tractors (long wheelbase). Black bracket is what I'm looking for.
3- Front lift bracket, this bolts onto the front bumper and guides the lift strap. I got no pic.
Anybody have or know where to get?
