Electrical problem

Postby David Gray » Tue Jun 15, 2004 12:09 pm

I have a problem on my Cub (1947 Farmall Cub) I recently had to replace the switch was a 4 way switch. Couldn't get original so got a International switch. Am having trouble with draining the battery con tinuously having to recharge battery. Not sure if I have a cutout or a voltage regulator.
1. How can I determine which I have?
2. How can I problem shoot to determin what problem is?

David, a cut-out relay has 3 terminals, a regulater has 4. Read the new members post at the top of the page, lots of excellent info and links to more. :wink:

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
