Delco Starter/Generator

Wed Mar 30, 2005 7:09 am

Getting my model 73 with 12 Hp model 122 engine together but the Delco Starter/Generator has very little torque. I have disassembled and cleaned everything but while operating starter on work bench I can stop pulley by hand. Any suggestions. Delco starter/generator number 1101996. Thanks.

Hi Lyle; I think you might have a bad armature or at least bad bushings(if it has bushing as some S/G have ball bearings). I would find an alternator shop that rebuilds them check the armature. Are you using the S/G off the 12x tractor or the 7x? There was a difference in the size of the pulley when the engines got larger. New brushes might be needed also. There are other used S/G out there but be sure it turns the right direction as all the others out there turn the opposite direction from Cub Cadets.
