Ca, I have briefly looked into the charging system, but have not gone threw the troubleshooting process yet. It's been a none issue as the machine usually starts after 2 or 3 pulls. But I intend to have that issue figured out by next season.
You can rest assured that this machine will not be trashed, I love it, and intend to keep it running as long as I can. There are many parts available for it on eBay, so I believe I can keep it going for awhile. At this point I'm considering what parts I may want to buy proactively, and many of them are the electrical/ charging system parts. Tho it's not a priority at this time, it is on the radar.
One of the things I've always loved about these old 3 wheelers is that they can tip toe around a lot of places that today's quads can't, and for the most part don't shred the earth like many of today's quads. This little buggy is an excellant addition to my off road machines, and will more than likely be my go to hunting machine for as long as I can keep it running. Did I mention how easy it is to tow around compared to my quad?
I'm glad the Jeep, and tires are working well for you. I've been very pleased with our Jeep, but prefer it for "on road use". For off road I have the 3 wheeler, quad, and snowmobile. Over the years I've learned that those types of vehicles are much cheaper to repair should I do something that causes a breakdown. Also, I use the Jeep for everyday use, the rest of them can sit until I can either allocate the time and/or money too repair them. Just sayin
