I put a small one wire alt on mine, but had to add a relay to turn it off because it was draining the battery overnight. It works great now.

Wow! Is the alternator you have charging at all? I had a couple of problems with the Cub charging systems on my 1572 and 1772. On the 1572, the regulator came apart internally. A seam opened up on the edges where the potted electronics met the heat sink and stopped charging. When I unbolted the regulator and pressed on the epoxy covering the electronics, it would resume charging. On the 1772, it stopped charging and I traced this one to corroded and burned crimps in the connector where the voltage regulator plugs into the tractor wiring harness. I replaced the connector housing and all the crimps and adding some connector anti-oxidant, and all is fine for 2 -3 years now.

I haven't really tackled the electrical yet, just doing my homework and seeing what others have done or experienced. I got it running, did oil change, and radiator flush. I will tackle the electrical as soon as there is a break in this heat. I have to tackle a newly discovered fuel leak after filling tank with fresh diesel and a shot of Diesel Kleen.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
