Regulator or cut-out ?

Postby ub54 » Sat Aug 08, 2015 10:53 am

I'm still having trouble trying to figure out how to polarize my generator , Rudi I think told me to momentarily jump a wire from the Batt terminal to the generator terminal on the regulator - cut out . My regulator- cutout has three wires . Two which are wired directly to the generator , one to the F terminal and one to the A . The lone wire on the other side is wired to the amp gauge . My question , what two do I jump across to polarize the generator ? thanx again

Jump from the one connected to the ammeter (BATT on regulator) to the one connected to the "A" terminal (GEN on regulator).

If yours looks like this, it is a regulator and the appropriate terminals are labeled. It may be installed 180 degrees from this orientation.

Hi,
Some pics would be good, which pic below does the regulator or cutout look like. The 1st is a Cutout, or relay, IH called it in the parts book, the 2nd pic is the voltage regulator.
Click on the pics makes them bigger. :)

[Mine is the fisrt one and is mounted on the generator. Sorry but I can't do pics with my phone . Well my son just showed up so maybe this will work. First one shows the three wires from the cut-out or regulator , the second shows where they attach to the regulator . Sorry no pics, didn't work. Anyway , mine has 3 wires ,2on one side one on the other . the 2 on the right side go to the F and A terminals on the generator and the one on the left goes to the amp gauge..Couldn't really see it that good on your pics.

Hi,
Jim explained how to polarize it above, be sure to Not touch the field terminal with the jumper wire. No you don't need to turn on the ignition. :)
