Hi, I followed the trouble shooting tree I found on this site and pretty much determined that my cutout relay is Kaput
. I was going to try to keep the cub origional as possible and buy another cutout but the ones I've seen offered come with just two terminals. I'm assuming Batt and Gen. Problem is my cub (unrestored 6 volt '47 with batt ignition) is using all three of the terminals on present relay, batt, gen and load (wire running from load on relay to field post on genny). From what I've been able to learn on this forum this is probably due to my lights being added on at some later date or the light switch had a ground problem at one time.
So, if I buy the new cutout am I going to lose use of my lights or is there a work around for this? Can I replace cutout with VR which wouldn't be like origional but certainly cheaper (still haven't figured out why VR is half the price of a cutout relay).
Also I understand there is a diode mod fix out there somewhere on net. Not sure I want to go down that road but if someone has link to proceedure I'd like to read it.
