B10 voltage regulator

Recommended Posts

I'd like to know a manufacturer and part number for the voltage regulator on an AC B-10. The regulator on my B-10 has no manufacturer or part number markings anywhere (inside or outside). At this moment, while I'm working on restoration of my B-10, the voltage regulator is off the tractor. I'd also like to know how I can test this old regulator to see if it's still working. Thank you for any assistance.

any older ford, chevy, AMC or dodge, will work form a parts store and cheaper then the tractor place. we bought one a few years back and it had a Agco box, $20.00 mark up, "for the box I would guess" and directions for a ford, chevy, AMC or dodge 12 v gen/reg "not for a tractor". so now I just go down to the parts store and ask for a '62 amc rambler classic 6 cyl regulator. that is what I have replaced some of mine with already. if not sure of take your old one in the parts store and ask for some thing close. "$65.99 from Agco $35.99 advance auto" have not checked for a few years tho. good luck just looked it up for you they went up.

Be careful, not all regulators are interchangeable, I think the garden tractor systems are 15 amp because of the sealed starter generators. Your original regulator is a 3 pole model. The briggs ones are 2 pole and require you to drill new mounting holes on the tractor. Looking at an orignal regulator the #s are 12 VN 1H, other leg I think is the model # 1119 310E. I have purchased several replacement regulators for only $30 ea. about 2 yrs ago. They look identical to factory and really finish off a restoration. The factory delco regulator is to the left.


They are made by J&N. part # 231-12026. I bought mine from DB-electrical rebuilders in Gray, TN. I had great service from them. www.dbelectrical.com The J&N regulator is also probably available locally through a starter or alternator shop.

Here is a link to the one I replaced 4 or 5 years ago. Mine is just liked the one pictured it is a 3 pole. http://cgi.ebay.com/Voltage-Regulator-Delco-1118988-for-BRIGGS-295924_W0QQitemZ170260887769QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item170260887769&_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116 Chris, where is that info in the link that you provided for J&N. part # 231-12026? It just shows a index, but i can`t seem to find that part number.

Damon, I would devinately go with the 3-coil type as Chris and Ray have stated. They are the 3-hole mount type and look and work just like the original Delco unit.

Ray, I had the same problem. I ended up doing a google search and got to their main web site and just book marked it. Unfortunately there is no listing for the 3-pole regulator. may have to call them. Their # 1-800-753-2242

Caution
An automotive 30 amp voltage regulator will work and get the Battery charged but it will also burn out the generator side of the starter/generator as it will not open the charging circuit at 15 amps. It will keep calling for 30 amps which the start/gen can not supply and over heat the coils burning it self up.

this is the box that I received oh so many years a go. ya I went out to my mom & dads house and looked for this box and instructions. the only thing missing was the listing of cars and trucks this regulator worked in and this why I said what I did yes I looked up the wrong car "sorry" it was late and I just looked fast. also thanks UCD for finding my mistake. here's the box and the paper left in the box.
