I am rebuilding the engine in my 26 tudor and need to recharge the magnets they are out of the car is there something I can make to do this or an easy way to recharge them d
would you have to take them of the fly wheel to recharge them mike
Take a look at these earlier posts on the FOrum:
2013: Magnets on Flywheel (In Car doable?) http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/341620.html
2009: Magnets loose from Flywheel http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/80257/97789.html
If apart from the engine, the trans fits well in a 5-gal bucket. With a coil ring laid on it, I zap it with jumper cables hooked to my 48v golf cart. Get all the $10 MTFCA books shown on this site--it walks you through all of this.
It is fairly easy buy two compasses and be careful with your measurements It really worked swell
Mike, your system works very well for me. I found one of those chargers and refurbished it, replacing the ON/OFF switch with a push button starter switch.
They are old now, as the newer golf carts have a built in charger that just takes a 115 VAC plug-in cable.
I found this one for $40 at a place that sells the newer units and had no use for this one.
This unit provides 48 volts dc at about 40 amps.
The push button is in the primary circuit and only seeing about 1.5 amps at 115 volts ac.
The coil ring has to be pried off after a quick three zaps of about one second each.
All the magnet poles have to be the same height to provide an actual contact with the coil ring for a maximum charge.
Individual measurements of the actual magnet strengths shows variations in the strengths.
That might be why the original instruction have you turn the flywheel 90 degrees and repeat the charge procedure.
