CCKB not charging

Recommended Posts

CCKB not charging on my 9020 when I hook up the battery charger to the tractor the amp meter does not show the charge even with the key on. Does this point too a bad regulator?

The ammeter should NOT show anything when using a battery charger. The ammeter will only show current (Amps) flowing to or from the battery (+ and - respectively)thru the tractor wiring/voltage regulator. There's more to it, but that's the non-technical explanation. If you do a search for "voltage regulators", there were a couple of great tutorials posted by club members here. Jack P

Charging is no different than jump starting. You can't start an engine with the battery disconnected. Charging will not harm a functioning voltage regulator. I suppose if someone had a dead battery due to a bad regulator, hooked up a charger, later discovered a bad regulator, they might wrongfully assume the charger destroyed the regulator. Jack

      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
