Open arXiv.nb (which is the StyleSheet Notebook), scroll down to the 
Style Menu Shortcuts section, and select the 

   Prototype for Style "Equation"

cell (the inner-most cell bracket). If you unformat this cell (Format 
menu | Show Expression) you will see that one of the options for the 
Style of Equation cells is


If you delete this option and reformat the cell then Equation cells will 
no longer increment the "Equation" counter.
