I have a 1969 Case 310G SN/3039533 with a 188D diesel engine SN/ 2657658. When I first got it it had 1 12V battery and wouldn't start without starting fluid, not enough cranking rpm. It had 2 battery cases so I added a second battery and wired it in series for 24 volts (I don't know if this is proper or if I should have wired it parallel).

Not original starter, only 1 bolt held this starter on but it's worked fine for 15 years on 24V. Then, solenoid would click but no start. I sent it out to be rebuilt but the rebuilder had a proper starter for this engine where all three bolts connected it to the bell housing.
This starter has no solenoid (direct drive?). It has a 12V relay with a solid copper strap to the starter.
Problem: Where does the ammeter lead go, hot, S, I, or switched?
Also seeking advice on the parallel or series battery hookup.

What kind of a charging system do you have on it? I hope you got the Gear Reduction starter and not another Delco. The newer style starters are much superior. with a diesel you should only have two smaller wires, one a little heavier that supplies the switch and one to engage the solenoid. You do not need 24 V to start that engine if it is in good condition.Needless to say if you did not update the charging system to 24 V you were constantly charging batteries.

It's a 12V alternator. Didn't seem to cause battery charging problems, nevertheless I'm going to rewire in parallel. The starter looks ancient. No solenoid.
