Wow,... Great responses from everyone. Thank you very much!! I will check the ammeter for a draw down with lights connected as I do not have them on the tractor; as I sometimes go through brush in the woods on the trails. I think the ammeter is the induction type and not directly wired if my memory is right. The belt is obviously loose enough to allow the generator to 'spin' but tension is adequate so it does not obviously slip when engine is running. I will check belt tension though, as I did not realize the possible issue until the mystery of the 'spinning generator'. Could someone give me a run through on how to best 'polarize' that generator; which I believe is the original type? Also, what is suggested belt tension in deflection of belt? I think why everything worked as is was is that centrifugal force was enough to make the belt not seemingly slip. The tractor is a couple of hundred miles North of where I am in Twin Cities (Mpls/St. Paul) so I will follow up on any and all suggestions when I return to the farm next week. I do have a copy of the Ford/New Holland Operator's Manual for 9n, 2n and 8n; which I will dig through as it has some maintenance info etc. Thanks again guys!! Suggestions were great! KTM
