    Why don't ya take your battery to an automotive part store and have them load test it. You just might have a bad cell or battery.

If I jump it with my truck I have to let it charge for a while, it will give a slow turn usually start. Last night I parked it and turned the key back on, not attempting to start it, and the alt and oil light were bright and shiny. When I went out this morning they were barely lit and the starter wouldn't click at all. I'll charge the battery this morning but is there anything else I might be missing?

    whoops! I didn't think my post went through. I've been that route. I've changed voltage regulators and alternators. I've rewired it and removed any extemporaneous wiring (lights). I've replaced battery cables and think I've gone the route. Maybe I'll just have to break done and buy and independent alternator.

    My last battery we discovered had a dead cell but was under warrantee so I've just recently replaced that.

    Why don't you charge the battery fully off some charger, disconnect the ground cable and come back next day, reconnect the ground and try to start. See if the battery holds and you can get her to start. If it charges while running, then anytime you turn off the tractor overnight then take the ground cable off as well. See if you can get this game* going for a while. You might have some short or partial short( resistance) that draws the battery down. Where it is, only god almighty knows

    JC,

    * you either have to find what draws the battery down or just put an in line disconnect to avoid taking the wire off the battery

    Dont know if you ever made the purchase but I have a Ford 1700. It was my grandfather's handed down to me. The tractor is a work horse. Never had any major issues except for the radiator and water pump. The local newholland dealer found an aftermarket radiator and also had the water pump in stock. Oh and the steering wheel broke from everyone hanging on it. That was the hardest part to find. The tractor will start on the coldest days and the fuel economy is unbelievable. If you have purchased the 1700 you made a great choice. This little tractor will give you years of dependable service.

    Thanks eddie for sharing your experience. This thread has gone cold for a while now. I had the same experience with my little ole 1700 and have no intention to getting rid of it ... like never.
