    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    I have 3 wires in total coming from the dynamo, and a 2 position headlight switch, (off, 1st position and 2nd position)

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    Thank you I have the type switch as in this example but of course no symbols or description on the dash to indicate anything as such. The headlights operate on both ;positions although I don't a significant difference in brightness (maybe a teensy bit brighrt on second position, especially after...

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    OK thank-you for the illustration. I believe from recollection the bulb and socket is a BaA15S 91156) single contact bulb, as I attempted a couple of 7056 LED bulbs but didn't quite work as I had expected. So these I know are the BA 15S type base/contact.

    The socket from my recollection is same confiuration for the 1156 pin type so??

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    Ok, got it, 1156 bulb single filament, only one 1156 bulb in each headlight assembly. Two wires power and ground. Regarding a dynamo or alternator swap, of course, each might present their own mounting challenges. I'd only consider an alternator swap if it was feasible for mounting, the dynamo...

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    Not sure about the original or not headlight switch, but the bulbs in the apparently original headlights seem to have two filaments (not exactly sure) but the bulb number is 1156. Definitely a 2 position plus off switch, and from the rear connections aside from any noticeable identification...

    I hear you fellas on all counts. I'm no genius on electrical matters either.

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    Hi again Dave, no i actually have 2 positions as well as off. Regarding the rectifier being shot mayve so. I'm sure one can teoubleshoot the diodes and potentially replace them or maybe kubota might just still sell parts as this or a salvage yard which I already have located one, but is in the...

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    I hear ya, well I have a few meters, a couple I can put my hands on, a cheapie tiny analog and another tad more expensice digital which only has the lowest DC volt setting of 300V, which at the battery terminals running at throttled up postion i only read 11V, but with the cheapie abalog i read...

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    Also by the way once I saw the wire broken off I viewed my wiring diagram in my manual and found that it did in fact affect the charging circuit/system.

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    Hi again Dave, yes when I got the tractor I did buy some 1156 LED bulbs and they worked somewhat, can't remember if I got that flicker that some LED's are known to cause, but with the reflective part of the rear of the headlight assembly being not so good they weren't much better that the...

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    Hi and thanks very much Dave for the added info. From my recollection of the particular wire that was broken off it was the short wire highlighted in pink (which is actually red)from the headlight switch to the rectifier that was broken off hence why the charging system wasn't working. It wasn't...

    B6000 Battery Charging Problem

    Hi Dave, on mine there are 3 wires coming from the dyamo to the wiring harness. As I reported the headlights seem brighter, but the reflective part on the rear inside of rge headlights especially on one has deteriorated with condensation and rust. I'm hoping the headlight housings come apart, as...
