I got the engine running the other day , the point were worn so bad that my flexable point files and steel point files wouldn't get them shinny , had to use a regular metal file then dress with the point file , I'll get a new set if things start working but right now it doesn't charge , I tried applying 12v to those connection to excite the dc part of the generator but not much , there is a trace of voltage .02 . I'm going to try taking the covers off to see if any of the brushes are worn , sticking ect . Still can't find anything for this but did find some on Windco generator so maybe they wire them the same ? The one wire sticking out of the metal box id marked " FLD " so am I correct in thinking this is the " Field " wire ? And what would it be doing loose like that ?
The worse part is now have a engine that starts on the first pull and seems to run good ,and I'm guessing it has a tapered crankshaft on the generator end ?
