P0505127-00011.pngUse a meter to check for voltage from the generator where the two wires attach to the regulator, you should see greater than 24v ac, not sure exactly what the number should be. If you show good ac voltage there, then check the output wire of the regulator for dc voltage, if you have nothing there then check to make sure you have a good ground. If it checks out there, then follow it back thru the switch, ammeter, fuse and wire all the way back to the battery. Hope this helps.

by the picture i found this tractor should have a magnetic charging system if you can see the charger which will look kinda like a small thin alternator and from wiring diagram above voltage is correct find out where the rectifier/regulator is it will be in 1 piece with engine wiring going to it they are on internet and most local mower repair centers have them they will have anywhere from 5 to 7 wires going to them normally most deere and toros they are located behind dash panel out of direct weather hits
