Broadmoor voltage regulator

Recommended Posts

I went to the Simplicity dealer to get a voltage reg for my broadmoor 728 aparently they are not available anymore. What are you guys using? I assume a car regulator would work but the parts stores in town can't look it up unless I know what car It came off of.

Not trying to nock your local Simplicity dealer but they are'nt looking hard enough for it.I was just at the dealer and they said it was no longer availible through Simplicity but then they looked it up in a Briggs Stratton book and found it avalible from them.I didnt buy it because it was about $70.00.I have heard that one from a 1957 Chevy will work. mowerman1193

Hi, A car one will regulate the voltage, but the current section is way too high and under certain conditions you will burn out the generate fields in the starter-gen unit. Automotive and farm tractor units are NOT compatabile with these units. They will make them charge, and try to make them overcharge and ruin them. These units can not use a regulator with a current rating of more than 8 to 10 amps.and most car regulators are set for 25 to thirty amps of current control. If you look in the service section there are some articles on the starter gen unit, the functioning of the 2 pole regulator and the three pole regulator. Good luck, Al
