hi all i just picked up a 195 in really good shape and a 220 now the generator light is on sometimes on the 195 and all the time on the 220 ,so which one do i have a problem with,and what might the problem be?? thank you Tommy
The light will sometimes flicker on & off at low idle speeds, but should go out with just a little throttle. The 220 being on all the time has an issue. Could be anywhere in the system....wiring, regulator, or the starter/gen itself. To be sure they are charging or not, put a volt meter on battery with engine off, then start. You should see at least 1 & 1/2 volt rise or more.
