Does anyone have an original Late 1966 to 69 Shovel with the automatic circuit breaker p/n 74586-65 (not the timer) ? Where is it located? Ther parts manual shows one 8-32 screw and nut. Was it attached to the battery tray or?? This was also available with the 4" wire leads attached under p/n 74585-65 for retro-fitting to 65 and early 66's. One wire lead went to the regulator Bat terminal and the other end went to the battery pos. Anybody have a copy of the instructions that were included with the kit?? :?:

Smokey... I've got a '69; just happened to have the battery tray off (rebuilding the trans). The breaker you are referring to (with attached leads and mounting ears) is mounted to the battery tray with a single screw and nut. The location of the hole is on the inboard portion of the battery tray 7/8" back from the front edge and close to the top edge. Hope this helps.
