I messed up - now it wont start

Postby tnscmatt » Tue Jun 22, 2010 8:04 pm

1973 lo boy 154. The generator was rebuilt and the voltage regualtor is 2 years old. The tractor ran great. The throttle cable was stuck so I replaced it. When putting the dash back together, it sparked. I know...I forgot to disconnect the battery. Now it wont turn over at all. The battery is fully charged. Did I blow out the voltage regulator?? What else could it be? I replaced the fuse. Dont yell at me.

Re-check your wiring connections where you did the replacement and see if they are still making good contact!----sounds like just a connection problem to me! thanks; sonny

Check all the safety interlocks.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

The only safety interloc is the clutch pedal so it has to be depressed when starting.
Whats the fuse control?
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Wiring diagram for the 154.

This diagram shows the PTO and clutch safety switch wired in series.
