I pull a MM diesel, with NO charging system at all. I have a 14" electric fan, and electric water temp guage and tachometer, and an LED under dash light that are all on one main switch, meaning they"re all on at once, including the back lights for the guages. I have an over ride (on) to turn the fan on any time, and it"s also on a thermal switch. All that being said, I have a large truck battery on it, and make sure it"s fully charged before I leave the house. It makes it through a full day of pulling, normally 2 hooks with plenty of battery left when I get home to start it on the trailer to unload. At a 2 hook pull that"s usually 3 or 4 starts. I always turn my fan on just before I take off down the track, and it runs until I"m back to the pits every time, I just let the thermal switch take over then. It"s not uncommon for my fan to run almost 5 minutes after I park. I had trouble only twice this summer. Once when I was done pulling and walked away from the tractor and forgot to turn the fan override switch off, and the second was due to not having the charger on long enough after that one, so the next pull the battery was low. I did always make sure to park the tractor in such a way that I could hook my jumper cables either to my truck or other tractor if I needed to. Hope this helps...I don"t own any gas tractors, so I don"t know how much juice you need for ignition LOL!
