Pre 68 JD 110 tractor.
I got new armature and field windings. I had the pole shoes to the wrong windings. The one with the notch has to go to the ARMATURE windings. Got that figred out and now the starter side of the generator works great.
Now, for the real problem.
Most of what I had read says that to polarize the generator to touch the armature terminal to the battery. Well, the armature terminal is already hooked to the battery through the solenoid so I did not do that polarization.
After I got the engine running I tested voltage at the battery, less than bat. voltage.
I hope I did not goof this thing up by not polarizing before I tried to start it.
Can anyone tell Me if I did, or not.
I thought that being these are a starter generator that polarizing these might be different than polarizing a regular generator.
I guess I need some guidance to, someone to tell Me if I goofed it up, ruined a regulator or if there is a different method for polarizing the generator/starter.
