Got a T in the shop you know one of them new ones with a generator.
Here my problem
Gen reads dis charge liggt horn ect
But when running no charge.
I moved the adjustble brush it charged for a few mins and stopped
Could it be the cutout witch is new repop any ideas
Replaced the cutout with a barrowed one seems that was it
No wonder i never had one of those new one
I prefer the diode regulator as it relies just on electrons not magnetism, 90 year old contacts and voodoo. :-)
If that car has a voltage regulator (can look like a cutout) it will charge for a short time then go back to zero or almost zero when the battery is fully charged. If you turn on the lights while the engine is running at a fast idle or running about 30 MPH and the ammeter goes to zero, it is probably a voltage regulator, but if it shows discharge with the lights on and running at about 35, you have a problem with the generator or cutout.
Your "cutout" could have been a voltage regulator. There are some voltage regulators that look just like a cutout. If you are running about 30 mph and turn on the lights and your ammeter reads near zero you could have a regulator. Normally with a cutout the ammeter would go to discharge with the lights on unless you have the generator brush set for a very high charge.
