10 aITlp. 15 amp and 30 amp alternator charging systems are used. The s ys terns can be easily identified by the rectifier-regulator unit which is mounted .e.xternally on either the engine at' equipment powered by the engine. The rectifier-regulators are shown on Figure 7-9 .. Other components .. f the o systems are also different and there can be, therefore. no interchangeability of parts between the syst e.rn s , Terminals on the 15 amp rectifier-regulator are, for example, pos it ioned in a different pattern than those on the 10 alTIp rectifier-regulator to prevent the two systems f r orn being hooked up in e r r o r . Be~ause of the differences. wiring. test procedures and precautions differ for each system. The syst ern s are described separately on the following pages.

10 AMP



The' 10 alTIp Alternator Sy!rtem consists of three rnaj o r components: a permanent magnet ring bolted to the inside rim, of the flywheel, an alternator stator assembly which is affixed to the engine bearing plate. and a rectifierregulator unit. As the magnet ring is rotated a r ou nd the stator, an alternating current is gene r a.ted in the sta.tor winding, The AC thus produced is rectified to direct current in the rectifier-rI"Jgulator unit. This is accomplished through the use of solid state (no moving parts) electronic devices which are arranged to form a full wave bridge rect.ifier. Regulation is also provided by electronic devices which "sense" the counter-volta.ge created by the ba tt er y to control or Unlit the charging rate. Since heat is gene.rated in op era t ion of certain of these electronic devices. cooling fins are provided on the rectifier-regulator to help di s sl pa.t e the heat, This unit should be mount-ed in a well -Ventilated area. Service: No a dju s trrie rit s are possible on the alternator s y s t e rn and field service on this system is not recommended. The faulty part should be replaced by a new part. Repair of the rectifier-regulator. which is a sealed unit. requir-es the use of special test equipment available only at the place of manufacture. Stator repairs must also be performed with special equipment. The accompanying Trouble Ana lys is Chart can be us ed to pinpoint the faulty pa r t ,

The 15 amp alternator c i r cu it includes three major components which are: a ce r arni c magnet ring which is p e.rmane nt ly affixed to an inner r im of the flywheel, the alternator stator mounted on the bearing plate of the engine and a rectifier-regulator unit which is mounted either on the engine or on equipment powered by the. engine. Te r rrii na Is on the 15 amp rectifierregulator .a r e positioned i n a different pattern than those on the 10 amp rectifier-regulator to prevent the two systems from being hooked up in error. The 15 amp rectifier-regulator has different solid-state components and therefore cannot be used with any other charging system. The 15 amp unit i.s slightly la r-ge r , physically, than- the 10 a=p unit. Other main differences are found in the ceramic magnet ring and the alternator stator with more posts and windings which accounts for the higher output than the 10 alTIp sy st ern, The c e r arn ic ring is pern').anently assembled with roll pins a.nd compression locking pins- on the 1 firs tand i s then charged rrra.g rret ica 11 y. Beca us-e of this and the fac'ttha t s pe cia I tools are required to install the ring, it cannot be ordered or serviced as a separate it sm. The ceramic material allows better and more co.inplete alignment of magnetic poles of the electrons which thus produces an extremely high strength ma gne ti c fie·ld. While c e r a rrri c rna.gnet s are very strong, the materia.t is brittle and can crack or break if struck with a hard objector when dropped. If the magnets are badly damaged, a DeW flywheel, complete with new ceramic ring is r equi r e d=--the replacement flywheel rnus t be charge.d on special equipment at the factory just prior to s hl pment. W-hen working on eng ines with this system, avoid any rn e'ta l l i c chips or objects that could be attracted to and stick on the rna.g ne ts ,


Two different types of ignition circuits are used in conjunction with the 15 amp battery charging s y s t e rns . They are the battery ignition and breakerless ignit io n circuits .. Magneto type ignition is not










available with 15 amp systems. The ignition ci r cui.ts are d es.c r ib.e d Yn the foregoing section. The used \vith the battery type ignition circuit has 18 po.sts. but only 16. are wound. On br e a ke r-Ies s ignition circuits, these two extra posts. are wound to provide en e r gvf'or ignition. The ignition winding on the breakerless circuits are of very thin wi r e which is covered by aflepo~y~~be careful when .i ns ta ll i ng the ftywheel not to touch the sha rp edges against the wires as they can be s a s ilv cut in spite of the protective covering.

Since the rectifier-regulator will not work (SCR's cannot turn on) without a battery in the system, there are no a ctual f e st s that can be performed on this unit with equipment in the fi e ldv--Lt will either regulate as required or it wilt not Iurict io r, at all. U it is not working, check to make sure that a good ground contact is made between rectifier and vehicle or engine--o£ten paint causes poor electrical path here.

The magnet ring is inside the flywheel, the stator'is assembled to the bearing plate, or g sa.r' housing and the rectifier~regulator is mounted on the outside of the engine or, in some cases, on the equipment powered by the engine. Operation: As the magnets rotate a r ound the .sta to r, an Alternating Current (Ae) is induced in the primary windings of the stator. This current is carried thru the two black leads to the full wave rectifier segment of the rectifierregulator where it is converted to Direct Current (DC) for charging the battery. Regulation is provided by the solid state (no moving parts) e le ct r oni c devices in the redifierregulator.
