You'll have to start "unloading/disconnecting" the various branch circuits on the tractor. I would start with the electric PTO clutch and then the output lead of the regulator/rectifier. If the reg/rect module has an internal short/failure then it would most certainly cause the breaker to trip.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
