    Fixed (I hope) another bad electrical connection on my 140, this time at the voltage regulator, wasn't charging properly.
    Filled connector with dielectric grease, so good so far.
    Big test will be when it snows again.

    Electrical gremlins! The scourge of the vintage garden tractor world. It's gonna be a lot more of a headache with the late model tractors when they get old. If I remember correctly.. Mike Duwe said there were around 20 wires for an EFI engine he installed in a JD 420 to get it to run, charge and start. Like Scotty said when he sabotaged a newfangled starship.. 'the more they overtake the plumbin the easier it is to stop up the drain'.
