I need to get some education in how a battery works, I was using my '41 yesterday and at some point during the day it just stalled on me, could not get it started and I knew the reason it stalled was the reason I could not get it started, so once I got tractor back to where I could attempt to get a charge on battery,I put the battery charger on it, gauge indicates less then 25 % charge and that is having the charger on over night and 1/2 of today so no doubt in y mind that I need to replace it but what confuses me is why when I put my meter on it, it indicates 6.55 volts, wouldn't it show less, isn't that what a full charge would indicate so I am confused and need some teaching.
