I am working on the Sears ss16 (non-running at this point) - onan engine....This was a "project" I picked up as a non-runner - it "ran great" about 10 years ago, BEFORE it sat in a field in the weather.... Anyway, it sat in a field for a while and some of the wiring became rat food. So am rewiring everything and fixing the electrical stuff. The plug on the voltage regulator was melted and looking at the circuit board on the regulator it has a blackish spot on it - so im not sure if it's gonna be good.
Leading to my question. Onan regulators for the ss16 seem to be scarce and $$, while ones for a kohler magnum or k series are common and cheap - I may even have a couple laying around somewhere...
As long as the stator amperage is similar, is there any difference? Are they interchangeable? The plugs seem to be the same, and the wiring is identical as far as it hooks up to the wiring harness.
I would think they would be interchangeable (volts are volts after all).... What say ye?
