big ten problem

Recommended Posts

What kind of tractor? Need more info. Have you had the battery tested? How old is the battery. Assuming its a new battery, pull the plug off the back of the ignition switch if it has one. With the 5 position plug pulled you will have elimanated most of the tractors wiring. If it still goes dead you will need to find the short/leakage. If it doesnt, the ignition switch maybe bad. Some Regents back a few years had bad switches, etc. Jack

First of all fully charge the battery and have it load tested.A service station or parts house may do this for you. If you have no way to load test it,fully charge the battery and disconnect the positive cable from the battery for a few days and then reattach the cable before you try to start it. If the battery isn't dead then, you may have a problem in the tractor that is draining power from the battery. The battery may also be low on acid which may cause poor starting. Hope this gives you some help. Mike

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
