Delco cut out relay

#1

Post by 1951 adam » Sat Sep 08, 2012 3:34 am

I saw on Ebay, from a store I have purchased from, new cut out relays , re made by Delco?? They sent me a reply when I asked for some info, and said they work very well. Another store had a " V TRONIC" with a delco top, Anyone use either one? Looking for something that works.... I just remember that V TWIN nightmare 20 years ago when I was helping my friend with his 49..... any info would be helpful...Adam

I'm using the 12V electronic regulator for years now without problem (http://www.v-tronic.com/vtronic/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;).

ADAM!--As long as they are low output -(made for bikes with gennys), then you should have no problem with a standard bolt-up!--I run a Delco for a old caddy--its high-output, if its high output you have to ADJ. them for our usage!--I like to tweak them anyway ,At idle I have 13.5 volts at the batt. at 2000RPM+ I have 14.6 going into the batt. For me this works good with the halogen 55/100watt bulb Im running. I can run 6hrs. st. with the headlight on & no voltage problems!--I put it to the test in july when coming back from a party on the PENN.-OHIO border-7 hr. ride ,we took it easy cause we had 2-45s coming back with us!--Never had a problem with a DELCO-REMY regulator- or a BOSCH!----RICHIE 8) & IM sorry you were referring to a cutout relay!--MY BAD!

New Delco relays are available.
In the car world there are lots of GM reproduction parts, none are made by GM but they have to pass GM quality standards which are high, the parts are very good, possibly beter then original.

Adam,
Are you looking for a 6 volt cut out relay? Or are you looking for a 12 volt regulator?

Adam,
Here is a link to a more expensive alternative to the aftermarket 6 volt cut out you looked at. I'm not speaking from experience, but I have considered it and have contacted the maker. You would convert the genny from three brush to two brush in the usual manner( see the knowledge base) This is a solid state regulator but looks like an original cut out relay. I believe the possibly high quality aftermarket units currently available are for 12 volt regulators, not 6 volt cut out relays. here's the link:
http://www.splitdorfreg.com/harley.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

If anyone has experience with this unit, let me know. It says it's for a model 32, but after speaking to splitdorf I believe it will work with the model 52.
