Hey All,

Anyone know what this doohickey is?

It"s on my 650 that had a 12V conversion forced upon it. The wire comes from the dash and goes into a splitter and is connected by this Radio Shack device. Any ideas if I actually need it?

I"ll see if the photo upload is friendly...

It's the resistor/diode looking thing just above my proctologist glove.

a resistor..

and?

it should be in between key switch and #1.

with #2 jumped to charge stud.

it's the isolation device that takes the place of a 194 lamp or diode to isolate the vreg in the alt from the ignition.

no high magic here.. Smile

Forced upon it?
I'd say the tractor was lucky.
Or you are.

one thing i'll say. the alt conversions for the 53-64 machines are clean.. you can hang one on with a commercially available bracket set.. or easilly make your own, and it looks good.. not kludged or grafted. AND you don't sacrifice anything at all.. period... .. like with a 65+ tach drive unit genny.

I actually don't mind an alt on a 53-64... though I do like my stealth 12v conversion on my 950 using a gen from a diesel 01 Smile

Might not be magic to you guys, but that's why I asked.

Is there an inline version of this resistor? This one is already corroded because the alternator and this piece jut outside the hood and was in the elements for years before I bought it.

You don't see all the taped up wire nuts that are scabbed onto the harness. I'd rather have stock 6V and do my own butchery.

you are looking at the 'inline' version.

inline is just a mounting technique.. :)

you can clean it up and just resolder it to wires and tuck unde the hood.. etc.

I put my diodes in with a crimp connector on each end and cover all of it with heat shrink. It looks pretty good.

To replace it, I just take it to Radio Shack and ask for a new one the same color code, or is there a certain type recommended?

why replace it.. just re-use it.

you are trying awfully hard to make this very easy issue very very difficult.

it's a resistor.. it don't go bad unless it smokes and burns in two or the legs break off.

clean up and put some crimp connectors on it and re-hook it.

or stick a 194 lamp inline from key to #1

Your tractor, your call of course.
How many other 6V machines do you have?
What's in your daily runner, wife's car, lawn tractor, motorcycle, 4 wheeler, snowmobile, boat, RV/camper or hot rod if you have them?
Why would anyone want an oddball 6V machine that can't jump or easily Be jumped by everything else he has?
