Powermax charging problem

Recommended Posts

Just had a mechanic pull the CCKB engine and rebuild the starter. I also just installed a new ammeter. It reads 0. When I turn the lights on, it reads (-5). The mechanic says it is only charging at 12 volts and he's afraid it won't be enough once I reinstall the deck and start using the electric clutch. His best guess is that the flywheel magnets are weak. I've only had the tractor for about 25 hours but I've also replaced the crankshaft and stator. Any ideas other than the flywheel magnets?

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
