Title typo aside this thread should be pinned Dick. :thanks: The only one I see missing is the one for the 70 amp solenoidless three term switch. Also if you have the cigar lighter that can be wired off the lighting point.

Fixed it, thanks.

These tend to be some of the frequently asked questions that can't be answered by referring folks to the wiring diagram in the manuals.

We should point out that gen terminal is located on the underside of the regulator just to the left of the resistor. Green wire in the first pic. This particular tractor was converted to a late style 5 post switch and solenoid  but the gen wire is still required.

Make sure SG posts are clean and use star washers here. This one came loose and gen light did come on. The third  wire on the armature post is going to the light.

MAKE SURE the reg mounting bracket is securely grounded, scrape paint and/or star washers as required. Some regs are mounted on rubber vibration  mounts but had a small ground strap, pay attention to that, fourth pic. Pics were off an old crusty one on the shelf so please excuse. The three side terminals should be mounted towards the gas tank on most models. This was off a 1055 where the three terminals were mounted on a bracket exclusive to short frame big blocks toward the engine.. Things got a little tight. Correct me if I'm wrong Richard.

      Ran fine all summer, no blows the dash fuse (10 A) once it's started. Will run momentarily then, fuse blows and nothing. Replaced fuse, ran for a minute then fuse blew again. Any help?

      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'm having some trouble with my 418-A. I think it is ignition related, but I'm not completely sure. It starts and runs perfectly fine, but when I go to turn it off, it doesn't work. I can just turn the key into the 'off' position and take the key out while the tractor is still running and it will continue to run as if I hadn't turned the key off.
      I'm trying to keep this tractor as original as possible, so I don't really want to buy a new ignition. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

      I have a 552 with a 5.5 hp Tecumseh that has was running then one day would not start cause it had no spark . I cleaned the points put it back together and still have no spark. Looking for magneto parts and having trouble finding parts wonder if anyone could help me locate one .

      Let me first say that it ran when I brought it home.  Drove it around the guys yard, tried out the mower, drove it onto the trailer and drove it off the trailer and into the garage.
      I've done a "ground up" restore on the tractor (70 Charger 12).  Swapped out the breakerless for a battery ignition and swapped out the 10 amp for a 15 amp stator, flywheel and regulator.
      Pulled the head, looked pretty good, new head gasket and head bolts.new fuel pump, fuel lines,new switches and wiring, new aftermarket carb, new coil, coil wire, new points, new throttle and choke cables.
      Static timed (twice just to make sure) Have tried Autolite 216's and the hotter 437's. changed the condenser to the high dollar Kohler one.
      It will idle but when I give it some throttle it stumbles or will rev up a little then quits.
      I've gone thru the "trouble shooting " steps multiple time and to no avail
      Anyone got any ideas??  I am willing to try most anything at this point
