To be sure you can use a test light, touch one lead from the test light to the frame of the tractor and the other lead to the Positive + terminal of the battery if it lights up it is negative ground if not touch the negative - terminal of the battery and if it lights it is positive ground.
One thing to check if it was converted to negative ground is that the switched the wire on the ignition coil.

john-deere-2010-generator-pos-ground-qumruwi2utlvsp5qakcuppif-5-0.jpg Using your test light you need to turn the key to run position, touch one lead to the negative - terminal of the battery and on the ignition coil touch the Bat + threaded stud it should light and means it correct and do nothing. if not touch the Dist - threaded stud and see if it lights if it does move the wires on the ignition coil to where every wire on the Bat + threaded stud is moved to the dist - and every wire on the Dist - threaded stud is moved to the Bat +.
There is a good chance your charge gauge is backwards also , it swings in the direction the current runs and when it was reversed so did the needle on the gauge and in the case it does not mean it is discharging.

is the hydraulic fluid level correct ??? sounds like you're running out of hydraulic fluid. because if your trying to turn as your raising the lift then i could see a problem but if it's lifted and you're having an issue then fluid comes to mind first

Putting the loader lever in the float position and having it raise the machine off the ground is a classic symptom of low pilot pressure. Setting the pilot pressure involves expensive gauges and a special procedure for setting pump output pressure, differential pressure, and standby pressure. I recommend taking your machine to a dealer to have them set.

Pilot pressure for each valve is 406-464 psi.
Minimum boom float engagement pressure is 334 psi.

If the deck is level maybe its the wheels, check your tyre pressure. Stephen.

My problem with my John Deere 790 stalling was my safety seat switch. It's a quick fix! What I had to do to fix my 2006 John Deere 790, was:
1. Un-hook the switch wires under the seat that connect to the seat switch.
2. Then, connect all of them with little wire clamps (or you can use a raw wire and connect them all) inside the wire connector, with the 4 connectors in it, to bypass the seat switch. Hot wire all of them together. It somehow resets the switch.
3. Then, with my 790 Deere in neutral, I started it up and held the key in starter position for about 2 seconds. (Instead of letting go right when it fires up) Somehow, in doing this, the seat switch reset and I was able to reconnect the switch and the seat switch works as it should now. My Deere 790 front loader fires right up without stalling now, while in neutral, of course. So, try this first because it's a quick fix. I hope this helps.

You should NOT weld. braze or otherwise join, or "fix" an hydraulic lines, they, ideally, must be run as a single length again, any Join will simply fracture... Also if they are developing "Pin Holes" this is probably due to the material breaking down, and like a "Cancer" it will simply spread, and fail at a probable inappropriate time, not as though there are any good times? As an aside there are "Joiner" kit available for hydraulic lines, perhaps, cutting and rejoining like this may be acceptable? but still i wouldn't risk it, run new ones.

You should have a round knob on your dash or console you pull it up turn it to the left or turn it to the left and slowly pull it up.

The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.

I know exactly the problem. I work for a John Deere dealership and have seen this problem before. It is called short-tripping. When a machine is first started, gas does leak into the cylinder and crankcase past the rings--normal--simulates leaving the choke on too long with a carburetor engine.. As the engine temperature rises, the gas in the oil is burned off and there really isn't a problem. When you take short trips or do not let the engine run to get it up to temperature, the gas in the crankcase does not get burned off and will accumulate over time. Make sure the machine is getting up to operating temperature and this could take up to 20 minutes if the ambient air temp is low. Feel free to e-mail at ericf@greensouth.com with further questions
