charging system

steve unterborn i am trying to figure out the charging system on this tractor. i had the generator rebuilt and it has a new regulator. while the tractor is running it discharges but as soon as you turn on the lights the gauge shows charge. what can I try.I switched the wires on the volt meter and then it shows charge until you turn on the lights. if you leave the battery hooked up over 2 days the battery will be drained
gene Does the ammeter show a discharge while nothing is on? If You can find where the acessories (lights, etc) feed wire takes power from the electrical system, remove the wire and place a volt meter between the wire and the voltage source. any reading above a fraction of a volt will indicate a drain. Then it is a process of elimination. Check all wires for bad insulation
GENE NO IT DOES NOT SHOW ANYTHING UNLESS YOU TURN ON THE LIGHTS
