  1. Yep should be nice having a functioning charging system now. Having a hard time reading this but does it look like 808 hours on this machine?? I am not sure how many digits are supposed to be showing but this machine has had plentyyy of use.
  2. I was able to get my positive ground alternator working today by replacing the three wire regulator with a one wire setup. Then I flashed the alternator by briefly touching the alternator case (positive ground) to the terminal 1. I have a small enough pulley that I was getting 40-60 amps of charging. I dont believe it’s possible to have a three wire setup with a positive ground alternator because the dummy light will not work and the alternator will never get energized. Now I have an extra alternator I need to find a project for haha
  3. Thanks Chris, This alternator has different internal components and jumpers that allow it to specifically be used for a positive ground system - or so they say.. It is a D110Si12V63P alternator and if you google that you can find out more info on it. My only guess is that something is not right with those additional parts that convert it to positive ground. There is a grounding tab in a “D” shaped whole on the case of the alternator. When I ground the regulator to the case (using a screwdriver), the bulb lights up. So my thinking is that the regulator isn’t getting grounded properly or has some residual charge somehow? Thanks for Steve’s contact, I will have to get in touch with him. Peter
  4. Hello, I recently purchased a 3 wire positive ground 12v 63 amp 10si alternator for my TD6 crawler. I installed it on the crawler and it would not work. The idiot light would NOT come on with the ignition key turned on. The ammeter NEVER moved when running the engine. I then removed and replaced the bridge rectifier, diode trio, brushes, and voltage regulator. After running a bench test, still nothing. I decided it must be something with the stator or wire windings. I purchased a second brand new 10si pos-ground alternator and ran a bench test right out of the box. Still nothing. The idiot light never comes on unless I physically ground terminal 1. This tab is supposed to act as a ground with the engine stopped and key on so I am thoroughly confused and frustrated as to why the light is off. At this point I'm ready to put the old generator back on.. It doesn't help that the place I ordered from has no customer service either... I have read about lots of people having issues with the idiot light staying on but have had no luck in reading about people resolving the light NEVER coming on besides a bad connection. I am confident that all my wired connections are good and have a good ground. I will post a picture of my wiring diagram. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Peter
  5. 24 now haha thank you though. Need to get some more time to work on the toys!
  6. Check out these two links, I did my brakes the same way. http://www.jdcrawlers.com/messageboard/viewtopic.php?t=5177&start=15 https://www.redpowermagazine.com/forums/topic/69684-td6-brake-band-change-im-stuck/ The brake lining, rivets, and tools I bought from mcmaster. Will need 3/8" End Mill for counter sunk holes, 3/16" tool for hollow rivets, 3/8" drift punch. I used 3M 90 adhesive spray and then riveted the bands and clamped over night. Let me know if you need anything else. Peter
  7. Here is another pic of when the dozer was first dropped off in pieces from Hank in Indiana. It didn’t run and was practically seized up with a bad ring gear. Neighbors were probably very confused. On the alternator, every diagram I looked at shows I have it wired correctly. Still trying to figure that one out. I think I have a kinked diesel fuel line which may be the reason for restricted flow and the sucking in of air somewhere. I’ll have to replace it and see if there is improvement. Pete
  8. Hey guys, Few questions for you, My alternator is not charging for some reason. The dummy light does not light with “key on” and I checked that the bulb works. I found that the terminal 1 on the alternator is not grounded when I think it should be, as long as the machine is not running... Anyone know the reason for this? My diesel side is not running great. I bled the whole system, but after running it for a bit I found air to be in the system and it has white smoke out the exhaust. Anyone know where the air is coming from? I have the new seal and bearing on the clutch drive shaft and doesn’t leak. Added some LEDs and a dash panel to control lights and flame thrower attachment. Peter
  9. I purchased a new front bearing from MIBearings, I think fpsmith might have them too but they never got back to me. They seem to be out there tho. I just reused the old gaskets so hopefully no future problems there.
  10. Chris maybe these pics will help you find your bearings.. hah the shop/shed just barely fits both of these guys - the dozer might have 1 inch to spare on both sides and half an inch before hitting a support post (in pic) and collapsing the shed on myself.. not much room to walk around but it beats no light and the cold if I have a portable heater going. Can’t complain too much or I’ll have Koo after me. yes might be too fancy with the switches and dash panel but that stuff is fun to me. Pete
  11. Just about all out now haha was able to locate the three threaded holes (3,7,11 o’clock) in the front cover which were filled with grease and pop the cover off. Swapped bearing and seal. The bearing didn’t look too bad but oh well I was kinda interested in exploring this part of the dozer anyway. Filled back with oil now need to pop clutch back in. I was able to do it without removing the shifter cover which was nice. I couldn’t tell you how many times I dropped a tool down in the pool of goop..
  12. I don’t have a welder so had to get a little hill billy in making a bracket to hold the alternator. Also had to grind down an exhaust manifold stud a little to get it to jussst fit. The belt is tighter than I would like but hoping it might loosen a bit when it’s run for a while.
  13. Here is a sketch of my proposed wiring for new lights and alternator.
