- All, my 154 no longer charges the battery while running. The
ahmmeter displays negative needle deflection when the engine is
started (as I turn the key) and once running I no longer see a
positive needle sweep.
I spoke with my local IH guys and they told me to ground the "F"
terminal of the starter/generator and I should see some sparking at
the ground point and positive needle deflection at my ahmmeter. I
did not see any sparking or needle deflection. I also tried
grounding "A" and also had no results. This test was supposed to
determine if it was the voltage regulator or the starter/generator
as the problem. The tractor is a 69 and I don't beleive the voltage
regulator is factory ... it looks too new, however, the
starter/generator is original equipment.
Also, should I see 12 - 13 volts if I measure across the "A" and "F"
terminals on the rear of the starter/generator?
- Dixie Electrical shows that unit available in their current catalog.
