/ Battery dying or belt slipping? #11
Have you gone around to check/ clean the connectors and connections on the battery cables, and alternator wiring? Corrosion can give the alternator a higher voltage than what you see at the battery, which might explain the issue. What is the output voltage from the alternator when the tractor is running?Oh, I forgot to add that I found a sticker on the battery, 12/17. So that battery is likely gone. If it continues to have the slow starting issue I'll replace it.
Hi,OK. Belt changed, no joy. Still around 12.9 volts when running. I've got a service manual but it's pretty hard for me to decipher, I'll work on it some more another day. Thanks again for the guidance!
