Last week Ron diagnosed my non working amp gauge by phone (showing great patience with me) and today I installed the new electronic regulator and the gauge barely jiggled but did move a tiny bit. I called Ron and told him what was going on and he told me how to adjust the third brush. I had twice previously had the generator checked and told it was putting out 4-5 amps. I adjusted the brush as per Ron and son-of-a-gun its now reading 5 amps. I can't thank Ron enough!! Don Lyon
That's great customer service.
Yes, Ron is a great asset to the community. He has done my coils and helped me through a problem on the phone once too. Thank You Ron for all the help you give.
Just a side note, if you have a good magneto and drive mainly in daylight you don't need 5 amperes, I run mine at 2 amperes all season, never need to charge the battery except in the off season, takes a little load off of the fiber timing gear to.
Ron did the coils for my '25 roadster pickup over 10 years ago. Haven't had the lid off that coil box once!
You may have missed the part where he said he installed an electronic regulator. With that installed you normally set the generator to charge a wee bit with the lights ON at higher RPM and it reduces the charge from that high setting down to near zero automatically as needed to keep the battery quickly and totally fully charged. It saves both the generator and the battery.
