S/G problem fixed

Recommended Posts

My 3416H has always spun over real slow and the GEN light has been on since I got it. I could charge it and mow for 2 hours and it would keep up. I have swapped out a couple used regulators and checked all the wires and still no go. I didn't have another good S/G around and was going to find a used one. Well tonight I took it off and pulled it apart and found that the field wire had broke off the post on the inside. I reconnected it, polished the commutator, lubed the bushing and blew everything out. Got it back on and it cranks really fast, fires up instantly and charges! I was glad I didn't have to buy a S/G.
