I bought my first Deere, a 77 or 78 2040 Tuesday. Today after washing it, I had an electrical short in the wires going to the dash lights. After removing the burnt ones, my headlights, water temp gauge still work and it still fires up and runs. Problem is the alternator no longer charges but Ive only had it a couple days so Im not sure if it charged before or not. It has a reman alternator on it. Im thinking its a newer style. Where should I start? Have it checked at a parts store? Tractor came with a couple repair manuals but there is no schematic in either of them. Will a Chevy 1 wire alternator work?
