I have a 62-63 2010 G utility. when I purchased it, the wiring under the dash was a mess. I put a new key switch on, ran the wiring and finally got the charge indicator light to go off. My starter/generator guy said the gen and regulator were working properly but looking at diagrams, said I didn't need to connect to the L lead on the Reg. There are no lights on the tractor so that harness set is not connected to the switch. Now, the last time I ran the tractor, at engine speed, the gen light glowed, becoming brighter at idle. I pulled the switch and found that a fuse link (not the resistor) on the switch had failed. What happened?

2010 John Deere utility tractor, 1962 or 1963 Gas unit? Fuse link blows when there is an overload of the circuit, or a short. Are the wires in good shape, or do you have cracked and bare wires?

Is tractor still 6 volts or 12 volts? Generator and not converted to alternator. It's easy to redo the electrical, and go to a single wire alternator, that requires only the wire to the battery.
