The red wire is a 3 amp DC charging wire for the battery, the white is an AC circuit for headlights only and the black is the magneto grounding wire. The head lights will brighten or dim when the engine RPM changes. To tell if your red wire is doing the job, connect a digital voltmeter to the battery and then run the engine wide open and observe if the battery voltage increases. This will tell you that you have the right wire. Also in the red wire there should be a bump. This is the blocking diode that stops the battery from discharging back in to the windings after the engine is turned off.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
