Been using BMP quite a bit, and some at night work (Has the 35 watt Haligon lamps). Today I noiiced the voltmeter at 12 V instead of 14, so I did some checking. Yep fried connector. Used the dremal to remove the burnt secton, heat shrink on the single wire. All is fine again.

Yeah, mine did the same thing after I rebuilt the engine, luckly mine is still running fine, but I will need a new regulator as it has burnt some of the terminals off.

Luckly the regulator terminals are fine. I think the top connector wasn't fully connected and caused a lot of heat. Top connector is now fully seated. I will keep an eye on this.

I had to change out the connectors on the FF regulator. Made a lot of difference at the amp gauge. When I found the wire ends on line, I had to get 20 each, so I have spares for the other tractors as needed.

Now I gotta find the invoice. No luck in that right now. As soon as I can find it, I will let you know!

 

Found the e-mail! They are the Packard 56 ends, $0.28 each. But shipping was a bit high.

If you are willing to accept a non original part, female spade lug connectors are easily available cheap at Crappy Tire, Princess Auto, Radio Shack (the source) or I can send you as many as you need.
