What do you mean by, ...kicks out ?
Yeah, ...that does not answer the question at all, does itit doesn't operate the ac. along with the other electrical needs
there are no dash lights,warning lights.rewiring has been done by the previous owner,mini circuit breakers also installed by previous owner,lights do NOT dim or go out when ac is turned on. when alt. is charging--14.3 volts, when it stops, 12 volts. reading is being taken from switch on alt. this alt.problem has been with the tractor from day of purchase.It's a bit difficult to understand your problem.
How does the alternator "kick out".
If you are correct in saying "can not run lights and ac at the same time,one or the other. "
What is it doing? Are you seeing the alternator warning light?
Does it have a voltmeter or just a dash light for voltage/amperage?
Has someone rewired or "repaired" some wiring on the tractor.
Are the lights and AC blower on the same power feed and has someone installed a self resetting circuit breaker in place of a fuse?
Do the lights dim when the AC is turned on or go completely out.
What is this ? Picture would helpwhen alt. is charging--14.3 volts, when it stops, 12 volts. reading is being taken from switch on alt.
