All models are equipped with an electronic regulator which is attached to the brush assembly internally in the alternator housing. If faulty, it must be replaced; there are no adjustments which can be made.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
The electronic regulator is soldered to the brush assembly inside the alternator. It is non-adjustable, and must be replaced together with the brush assembly, if faulty.
- Remove the alternator.
- Remove the through-bolts and separate the front cover from the stator housing.
- Unsolder the wire connecting the diode plate to the brush at the brush terminal.
- Remove the bolt retaining the diode plate to the rear cover.
- Remove the nut securing the battery terminal bolt.
- Lift the stator slightly, together with the diode plate, to gain access to the diode plate screw. Remove the screw.
- Separate the stator and diode, then remove the brush and regulator assembly.
- On assembly, apply soldering heat sparingly, carrying out the operation as quickly as possible, to avoid damage to the transistors and diodes. Before assembling the alternator halves, bend a piece of wire into an L-shape and slip it through the rear cover, next to the brushes. Use the wire to hold the brushes in a retracted position until the case halves are assembled. Remove the wire carefully, to prevent damage to the slip rings.
- Install the alternator.
Regulators on these models are not adjustable.
