Resister

Postby Pops140 » Fri Dec 08, 2017 11:23 am

Alright I'm working on my 63 IH 3414 there is a ceramic block with two connections on it the coil is directly below the resister I believe the coil connects to the resister. But I wanted be positive before I hook it up and mess up my wiring. If anyone has a diagram or knows what this thing is for let me know please

Does it look similar to this?

If so, it needs to be there and working. If the coil needs to be replaced, get an internal resistor coil and eliminate the old resistor.

Head scratcher.

IH switched to 12 volt electrical systems in the mid 1960s. The 3414s were built between 1961 and 1967.

Need to know the current electrical system's voltage and the coil voltage. I assume the electrical system is 12 volts, but you never know.

If originally a 6 volt system, converted to 12 volts, with a 6 volt coil, then the ballast resistor needs to be wired in line with the coil.

If originally a 12 volt system, why the ballast resistor?
I have an excuse. CRS.

It's a 12 volt system built in 62 I .think.

Yes it looked just like that but it's not hooked up any more and I can't get her started so I was wandering if that could be why

It's a very earliest machine I was wondering if it possibly was born a 6 volt and the converted to an alternator. I put a accelerated hi performance coil on there and it still won't start. That's my issue I bought the tractor not running and I'm trying to figure out what's going on. I am as tole by dealer that it ran when he took it off n and needs a water pump. So I've been in the process oh thing to go through it
