Re: Voltage Regulator / Dynamo

Glad you have your system sorted out now. The man ual that Gard kindly sent me was a very detailed manual on how to set Lucas regulaters and generators/dynamos.

Re: Crank scroll seal

Your quotation is not correct ollek. Please read what I wrote correctly and then make the right reply. You wrote; "ir is sucked in through the seal and out through the rocker cover breather than into the air filter" is not what I wrote. I did write; "The engine is not supposed to breath in through t...

Re: Crank scroll seal

You can buy a new seal from davidbrownspares online. I would think the gap is not suppose to be there and could be why you have an oily clutch. The engine is not supposed to breath inthrough there only through the breather on the rocker cover.

Re: Voltage Regulator / Dynamo

Good news Collin that the Seller is going to honor his product with warranty if you require it. Hope you get it sorted soon and let us know the outcome.

Re: Reduction unit Special C spanner

When I stripped mine down I was able to do it without the correct C spanner by tapping the lock tab over with a screw driver and then using a long pin punch I was able to undo the lock nut with no damage. But once the back cover is off you can try your spanners to see if you do have the right one. T...

Re: Voltage Regulator / Dynamo

Colin, when you ran the engine with the new regulator was your battery fully charged? That might account for a high output.

Re: Voltage Regulator / Dynamo

PM sent for a copy of the PDF. It could not have come at a better time as I need to adjust my system to being a better and acceptable level. As for Collin, I think he may have a faulty new regulator andI would talk to the supplier to see what they suggest. To go from under charge to now over charge ...
