Proud new owner of two 1970's E-15's both run (barely) installed new batteries (Trojans) have installed Kolpin 3pt hitch front and back but two problems are holding the project back.
1. Can't find the darn serial number! Was it on a sticker or is it on a plate/stamped somewhere? Hints on where to look please!
2. No power! It goes in low gear but won't go up even a small hill in high gear. Both tractors are doing the same thing. Power Pulse doesn't appear to do anything. One has OEM foot control other one has been modded with a momentary switch. What should I be looking at first? Is this something to do with the field weakening system? Any jumper locations I could use to test/bypass systems that may be slowing the tractor down. Conversely are these tractors so under-powered that they can't even go up a hill unloaded? Doesn't seem to make sense to me. Maybe from sitting? Both did sit for several years undercover but near the ocean.
Any suggestions, ideas or opinions appreciated.
