    CC 149 Volt Meter

    So we have a .1% differance.. that is not going to keep the tractor from not charging and that is the point of this post.. Either he has a problem with charging or the generator is not turning fast enough to produce power.. I would check that first and if it is charging, check the ammeter...

    CC 149 Volt Meter

    Yes, these little tractors are designed to be run at WOT (wide open throttle) as this gives them enough speed to produce their rated horsepower but also gives the mower deck blade speed enough lift to give a nice cut and also enough engine rpm to allow the generator to spin fast enough to...

    CC 149 Volt Meter

    Also I would check that charging system with a volt meter at the generator as the amp meter on the dash may be suspect and may not be working right either.. He may have two problems but the charging needs verified first..

    CC 149 Volt Meter

    A battery puts out 2.2 volts per cell at full charge.. 2.2 x 6 = 13.2.. a 6 volt is actually 6.6 and a 24 system uses two 12 volt batteries connected in series that produces 26.4 total when fully charged.. But you are right the charging system produces more than 13.2 because of wire resistance...

    CC 149 Volt Meter

    A fully charged battery should put out about 13.2 volts at the posts.. Also discharge during cranking for what you are looking for does not mean much.. What does matter is how the battery recovers after starting and the charging system is operating.. Check battery charging in the FAQs and it...

    Hutchins are made in California and Idaho..If you get one or any other orbital sander, get the 6 inch pad.. most common in shops and easier to find the sticky back sanding paper..

    In the market for a good DA

    The top of the line is Hutchins.. but they are more for professional bodymen.. I have a palm sander I bought forty years ago and still works great.. If you town has an autobody supply store go there and talk to them and see what they have. What state are you in?..

    What's the "Greatest Life Hack" you ever saw?

    When I used to work for a bus company in the 80s, our biggest problem and had been for some time was corroded battery terminals.. school buses have high amp alternators and with 8 heater motors running at the same time in the winter, it created a lot of resistance at the posts and at least 1 bus...

    Por 15

    I used POR-15 on the frame of my snowplow truck after much preperation and it worked well.. I have used tank sealers in motorcycle gas tanks and the problem is they peel and flake and get in the fuel filter or carb.. On a cub I would use about a measuring cup of pea gravel and shake it until it...

    44A Deck spindles

    Tempering is done after the metal is hardened and takes some of the hardness away and also relieves stress and makes it less brittle.. but yes the steel is hardened..

    44A Deck spindles

    When you take medium carbon steel and temper it to 35-48 rockwell you are case hardening it.. If you need a example of the process, Go to Wikipedia and look up case hardening.. [ QUOTE="gary noblit, post: 232795, member: 15311"] trying to be better informed I chased the subject of "what are...
