Yea, I see that alot of people use tractors like that for rally or offroad mowers, mine is like that except it has a smaller/lower hood that you can see over alot better. This looks good so far keep up the good work.

well the charging system when i hook it up it starts smoking from under the shroud, so i need to cut the wires. thats why i was gunna hook the light straight to the motor,

How have you guys tried to wire these?

Of the two wired, one is 12VDC(+). This wire is your charge wire, and is generally red, and has a diode installed in line, close to the connector. The other wire is 12VAC- which comes off the lighting coil. It is AC not DC and is meant to run your headlights only. Do not tie this wire into your DC electrical system.
