70' electro 12 wiring diagram

Recommended Posts

Looks very nice.  I do hope you are getting a bigger cable for your + battery terminal and from the solenoid to starter.  Should be at least 6 gauge.

 

Are you  getting 12v to the small + terminal on the coil.  For you rPTO issue look at this thread about what is involved i Electric PTO repair.

 

A manual PTO is  viable alternative and simple swap.

You've been busy.  Right above the battery where the wires are going thru a steel sleeve is the only problem I see.

The "steel sleeve" is a fuel line mounting point. Upgrade the battery wiring and you should be good to go.

The "steel sleeve" and the wires are not a good mix. After a while the insulation will chap and you will have a short. I suggest that you use a NON conductive sleeve inside the "steel Sleeve" to eliminate possible trouble in the future. The steel sleeve may be fine for a rubber fuel line to run thru it but that is even questionable.  Its better to go a little on the safe side than chance a fuel line leak in the case of the "Steel Sleeve" or electrical wires chaffing and shorting against metal or ground as it would be.

 

After looking at the battery cable it needs to be a larger diameter to carry the draw.

I agree that the starter circuit wire needs to be a #8 or #6 AWG. Also the battery negative wire should be moved to the engine block, perhaps a starter mounting bolt or engine mounting bolt. I keep some scraps of PEX plumbing pipe in the shop to use as a conduit for wires or fuel lines if it looks like chafing could occur. Any home under construction will have scraps in the trash when the plumber gets done, unless they are like me and they bring them home!   :teasing-tease:

Thanks everyone!!! I figured it out that it was the points werent gapped properly. Thats why i didnt get spark. No it backfires because the intake valve is hanging open. and i know i need bigger gauge wire it was temp job i did. It was just what i had laying around for the time being. And id rather keep the pto electric since i have nothing invested in it yet.

by the way...

I thought the metal sleve is where the wiring went because thats where it sat when i first got this thing. so when i get home i will move the wiring and when i go to the repair shop this weekend ill get the proper gauge wiring i need. I will also move the battery ground to the engine block bolts

The two bearings in the electric PTO can be had and are not that expensive I paid about $25 for the two of them.  You may need a shim or two depending on the bearing surface in your PTO they used different ones over time.

so yesterday i changed the battery cables, bumped them up to 6 gauge wire, also installed new band clamps with rubber around it.IMG_5443.PNG.af3576641bc613d6f10c77d0e382faca.PNG

 

 

i found out that where i mounted my starter solenoid that the hood brace was touching the power terminal on the starter side of the solenoid so i had to flip it like this. the part circled is the mounting post the hood was hitting and arcing off of.

so i clean the carb, pour some fuel in it and it runs... the pto even works!!!! but the bearing is blown out of it so i have a friend that makes high speed bearings, he can make bearings for me if i cant find new ones. other then pieces to function n saftey like the shifter cover plate and the mule drive this things ready to go. thanks again everyone. when i do the resto, ill be sure to post the build up!

Every bearing has a number on it a part number. These can be cross referenced to other manufacturers other brands. As long as a number can be seen a replacement most of the time can be found actually about 99% of the time. There are a few proprietary bearings that cannot be purchased one of which is the shaft bearing for a Pro Charger  P1200 supercharger of which the bearing manufacturer ONLY sells to Pro Charger. It however is a 65,000 RPM bearing. It is highly doubtful that Wheel Horse had any such agreement with a bearing manufacturer since the bearing used is a extremely common everyday type bearing.

I have not had good luck purchasing bearings off Ebay and I question Amazon quality also.  If it were me I would go to the local bearing shop with both bearings in hand. The reason I suggest that you take the originals with you is there is another factor and that is the tolerance of the bearing. Some like (example) the 608Z is available in different tolerances. The 608Z NT is a precision motor bearing for the Bodine gear reduction motor. However, a standard 608Z  ABCD tolerance bearing will vary so much that it cannot be used in that instance.

 

Pay a little more and purchase only once and you will be happy that you don't have to make multiple purchases to obtain EXACTLY what you need.  Having said that...generally a numbered bearing will exchange with another of the same number. So, the numbers have to be exactly the same. The example again the 608Z NT isn't the same as a 608Z ABCD or a 608ZZ.

      I have a few basic electrical system diagrams that are helpful in understanding how the wiring system works. They are not specific to any particular tractor and do not include safety switches. All use the 5 post ignition switches 103-991 for Magneto and 103-990 for Battery Ignition. I failed to include fuses in the Starter Generator drawing, this is an over-site and I would encourage fuses be used as shown in the other two drawings. 
      Hope this is helpful.
      Magneto Ignition system with electric start and solenoid.

      Battery powered ignition system with points, condenser, solenoid and electric start.

      Battery powered ignition with solenoid, points, condenser, Starter Generator and a mechanical voltage regulator.

      We have uncovered a shortcoming in the factory  wiring diagrams for S/G battery ignition systems with a four terminal voltage regulator. The wire from the regulator "Gen" terminal to the S/G  "A" terminal was omitted. This drawing should clear that up.

       Anyone have a wiring diagram for a 655. I found one but I'm not sure if it's correct on the hook ups any help would be appreciated!

      I know I've touched on this before and I can't find the thread. So, thank you in advance for humoring me in my lack of ability to operate my phone.
       
      What I'm trying to do is figure out which donor frames from what years and standard or automatic transmissions would be the right one to use for my 1974 c-160. I'd like to have a spare frame that I can clean up and paint and then start transferring parts from the one that I have.
       
      If I remember correctly, the late 60s tractor and the B series up to 1975 were considered mid-length. C Series and later B series were considered long frame?

      Hi! I have a 1968 Electro 12 with a Sunstrand hydro transmission. I acquired the tractor over a year ago, not running. I topped off the the tranny fluid w/ what I thought was ATF. Unknown what PO used (this tractor was so bastardized with repairs/maintenance's.). The hydro had no hoses or lift cylinder; the PO put large hex bolts into the tranny ports. I am going to purchase hoses from Lowell @wheelhorseman. What do I do?? Next? Original manual calls for 10w-30 oil for transmission. The Service Manual was updated in BOLD TYPE to use ATF type "A". Confusing???
