Measuring voltage is one of the most common tests a tractor mechanic will conduct as he troubleshoots a system. The presence of the correct voltage will determine if a component is functioning correctly or not. A common voltage test will be of the battery. A healthy battery should read about 12.5 volts, and a battery that is being charged should measure between 13 and 14.5 volts.

No click of the solenoid, nothing happens at all. Before assuming your starter is bad, grab your DMM and set it to DC Volts. Remove the wire going to the small terminal of your starter solenoid and connect the red probe of your DMM to the wire. Now connect your black probe to a ground. Turn your tractor’s key. Your DMM reads no voltage. This tells you that power is not going from your battery to the solenoid. Next remove the wires from the back of your ignition switch that are connected to the “B” and “S” terminals on your switch. Set your DMM to Continuity and connect your probes to the “B” and “S” terminals of the switch. Turn your tractor’s key and if there is no “beep” you know your ignition switch has a short internally and should be replaced.

In the case of a wire connection, it needs to be a very good conductor. Good conductors include most metals. The most common conductor used in wire is copper, although you may come across others such as aluminium. An insulator on the other hand is a material which does not allow an electric current to flow. Rubber and most plastics are insulators.

This is essential for industrial control systems that may contain hundreds or thousands of wires. These numbering schemes are often particular to each facility, but there are tools to help make wire labels that will appear in the final controls cabinet.

These conductors must be yellow throughout the entire circuit, including wiring in the control panel and the external field wiring. • White or natural gray represents a grounded circuit conductor. • White with blue stripe represents a grounded DC current-carrying circuit conductor. International and European standards require you to use light blue for the neutral conductor. • White with yellow stripe represents grounded AC current-carrying control circuit conductors that remain energized when the disconnecting means is in the OFF position. For additional circuits powered from different sources that remain energized when the main disconnecting means is in the OFF position, you must use striping colors other than green, yellow or blue to uniquely identify the grounded conductors.

You can determine the amount of current being used and charged on your tractor’s system by placing the meter in-series with the circuits of the tractor. To do this: first remove your red probe and plug it into the 10 amp Max port on your DMM. Then set your DMM to DC Current with the range of 10 amps. Now you unplug the wire going to your ignition switch’s “B” terminal. By clipping alligator clips to your DMM probes you can now connect one probe to the “B” terminal of your ignition switch, and your other DMM probe to the wire that normally goes to “B” terminal on the ignition switch. Now when you run your tractor the current will flow through the meter and your DMM can give you a reading. It will tell you how many amps are flowing through your system.

Insert the valve cutter pilot into the valve guide, and gently place the appropriate valve cutter into the pilot. Using the “T” handle apply gentle finger pressure downwards while rotating the tool. This is all it takes to cut into the valve seats. Do this for a few revolutions. Finish, by turning the “T” handle a few times without applying finger pressure. When done correctly you should see that you have cut a uniform area around your valve seat. Repeat this process with your other valve seat.

It is not difficult to learn the basic symbols. Once you do, you are able to read diagrams quickly, and can often understand a circuit at a glance. The more you work with both line and wiring diagrams, the better you will become in analyzing them.

When checking these subsystems keep an eye out for evidence suggesting trouble such as sludge or debris in fuel, missing or damaged air cleaner, score marks on top of piston and cylinder walls, and excessive carbon build up on the intake and exhaust valves. All of these give you valuable insight to your problem.
