Cover and keep the spray away from the starter, generator, and ignition system. Do not pressure spray the radiator. Just watch where and what you are spraying.
High pressure sprayers with a narrow stream pattern will peel paint, cut rubber and insulation.
You can use a degreaser or solvent prior to pressure spraying. Most of the tractor is constructed from cast, steel, or heavy sheet metal - so no problem.
Typically I trailer the machine to the car wash. Spend $5 or $10-. Use the solvent spray then pressure spray off the engine tractor. This leaves the mess for some one else to clean up. Leave the tractor on the trailer for a couple of days to completely dry out.
Just another thought. Convert to 12 volt single wire alternator, rather than spending money on the generator and regulator. Cheaper, much cheaper. The starter will need to be rebuilt.
