I have 2 starter generators here on the garage shelf that I had forgotten about. I discovered them when pulling my 12' long shelving unit out from the wall to do some insulating/drywall work behind it, had to clear it off to be able to pull it out from the wall.

 

I have a CC 129 and my son has a CC Original here that also have s/g's on them. I know that CC's (Cub Cadets) have starter/gens that run opposite rotation of other brands because they hook up to the PTO end of the crank instead of the flywheel.

 

On both units that I have on the shelf, the ID tag is still intact and still legible on at least one.

IS there a cross reference chart somewhere that tells specs on these units? (amp output as a gen, amp draw as a starter, and most importanttly, intended rotation?

Maybe you could bolt it down and hit it with 12 volts, see which way it spins...?  Is it ok to hit it with reverse polarity, would it run backwards or just burn up?

Whichever the rotation, it should be negative ground. Secure it, Hit it with power, and tag it for the next time you find it.

Which terminal gets the "hot" for this test, the F or the A terminal? It's been too long since I have messed with one.

Honest to Pete, I am going to have to look.
I think it's A, but not sure.
