R26 Field Windings / Generator Questions

Post by barnstorm » Mon 14. Apr 2014, 18:18

My R26 is not charging.

I have replaced the wiring harness with a new one.

The original voltage regulator is missing.

I am using a new solid state voltage regulator.

I have two wires coming from behind the regulator mounting plate.

One is orange-red the other is yellow.

Is the yellow cable the Field Winding that gets attached to DF?

Flashing the generator means momentarily touching battery live wire to the field terminal. This restores the residual magnetism in the field circuit which is essentially required for the generator to buildup voltage to start charging.
