Re: 29 Tudor charging system question

#1 - correct. If the noise does not go away in a few days, look at the way you have the brushes installed. You may have one at an angle that is hitting the rotating copper bits on the shaft, making...

Re: 29 Tudor charging system question

Have you set the charge rate down to 8 amps and measured the volts at the battery again?

It sounds like you really need a different ammeter. Call Bert's.

Re: 29 Tudor charging system question

As mentioned by someone else in an earlier reply, the VOLTAGE is set by the battery. The generator will push out the amps you have it set for (and as we agreed, 12 is too high) at whatever voltage it...

Re: 29 Tudor charging system question

Sure! As a temporary test; don't leave it connected. Have the RPM up high enough that you get the 8 volts, touch the wire on there.
