Well got me genny back from my local AC Delco Service Center.. oh... let's not talk about price ok
Oh well....put it this way, I had 2 6 volt Generators checked. One got a good cleaning a repaired bearing, a new pulley and one of the connections inside had to be redone. The other one got a new field coil, a new bearing, coat of paint and a good checkup. That was the most expensive repair. The 12 volt Starter/Generator for my 129 got overhauled and tested. Needed a little bit of work and is now in top shape and got a paint job. I also got a new Cut-Out for Ellie-Mae all at the same time. Biggest cost is labour.. 3 hours at $60.00/hr - ain't cheap. The rest is in line.. but double the labour and you got it about right. Not bad I guess for 3 Generators and a Cut-Out.
So needless to say I want to make sure I do this right
I was reading Jim's article in Red Power on Cut-Outs and Generators. I learned a few things I think. I learned that if you have a Cub with a battery.. be it magneto or battery ignition with no lights, the Field Terminal on the Cut-Out is connected to the Field Terminal on the Generator. But
... if you have a Cub with lights added into the mix, then the Field Terminal on the Cut-Out is ignored and the wiring instead goes to the 4 position light switch. Do I got that correct?
I am down in the shop working on Ellie, and just wanted to make sure that I am understanding this correctly. Also, I do not have an A Terminal listed on my new positive ground Cut-Out. There are three tabs one is labeled L, the next Bat and the next Field. I am assuming the A Terminal from the Genny is connected to the L Terminal on the Cut-Out yes
