Good to hear you are getting things figured out. That seat was a bit loose!

HEY SUCCESS !   I recently finished attaching the rebuilt SG and the correct VR. Checked all the wiring AGAIN , connected the battery, and turned the key to start…….The 800 is now generating power, the gauge is responding perfectly and everything looks like a go !

 

Thank you so much for every ones help and advice. Until next time.   M

Yes…that seat was quite loos. I thought it was a goner but some lawn forum research gave me a plan to fix it. A little cleaning, some high heat weld-bond and peening all around the seat was the trick. I was able to clean all the junk from the cylinder head and re-torque the head bolts which were way "loose" before.

 

Making my own valve retainer removal and install tool was a small challenge but fun. Those official valve spring tools for small engines are not easy to find and usually days away on a fedex truck.

Kinne electric in Manchester NH is the place to go for electric issues such as old generators ETC. They helped me on a 1948 chrysler starter as well as the 1968 (or so) Jacobsen generator starter.

The above instructions for polarizing the generator by touching + to A are correct for neg. ground. U may  have to redo this any time the VR or SG are 

disconnected!

Thanks Big John…. I got instructions from the rebuilder that since he had the VR and SG together, and could test and polarize them together, I would not need to.  So far, the system is doing fine.  Bit of an ordeal, but I like to solve things….eventually !

The 800 is back in business. More cleaning and painting to come. The original tires may be ending their lives in the not too distant future. But they hold air !
