Ralph - both a 2 or 3 brush generator will work with a cutout or a regulator. The 3 brush generator is typically the older style and the charge rate was controlled by adjusting the 3rd brush. The 2 brush generator came later and it's output is full all the time but typically controlled by the voltage regulator.

Thanks Big dog
That is what I thought but I had to be Re confirmed by some one that was familiar with a cut out all of my cubs have had the regulator systym.
I had it tested by a gen shop and they said it was putting out 7.2 amps so it should work on either type systym :wink:

Great, that's what I needed to know. I'm the one that originally asked Ralph about the one he has up for auction. You guys are great!

If you have to replace a Relay with a Regulator the wiring on the generator has to be changed some not a big problem. Have to add a wire and unhook the wire that goes from the generator to the light switch. And tape back
