High Voltage Output

#1

Post by oldbob » Sun May 02, 2010 6:33 pm

I have run a no battery magneto fired system for over 12,000 miles with no problems. I have a 65-A generator with a battery eliminator capacitor and a solid state fined regulator. I just changed out my burnt out head light. Both hi and low beam burned out with a little bit of RPM increase. What part of my electrical system would be most likely causing this problem.

Thank you in advance.......Bob

Dear OldBob,
Since burning bulbs means too much juice Ill bet the regulator gave it up. Generators break the other way.

Respectful',

Thank's for the reply shift. will any solid state 12 volt regulator work with the 65-A generator. It has been some time scent's I put the system together and don't remember if I used a particular type.
