Repolarization

Postby Maritimer » Fri Apr 08, 2005 6:57 pm

I can't find my manual, and I forget which post to touch with which post with the wire to repolarize my generator-regulator. Does someone have a better memory than I do?
My dad once told me if it wasn't for bad luck......I wouldn't have any luck at all......

Jump the batt and gen terminals on the regulator, that will do it.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Repolarization

I recently had to look this up in the archives, and found a response from Bigdog......."First, make sure the battery is installed with the positive terminal grounded, then, with the tractor not running, momentarily touch a jumper wire from the battery terminal to the generator terminal on the voltage regulator. You should see a spark when you do this. Now start the tractor and see if it's charging."

Being long winded has been a big help to a lot of us.
Take a little time to play,you don't grow old as fast that way.
