9020 charging problem

Recommended Posts

Well I know this will come as a shock but I have an Onan with a bad stator! I have seen several people have installed alternators on their 9020 and my question is.......What worked for you. I am considering a GM one wire alternator and making a bracket but before I get started I thought I would ask and see what other have done. Thanks for your input and time!

Unless you find you have other issues like faulty wiring, loose magnets, or simular, I'd agree to stay with the OEM system. If going to an external Alt. is your goal then I'd stay away from the single wire Delco's. They are not nearly as dependable with the internal pulse system at startup. They are also bulky and heavy. I'd use a small alt. off a small diesel engine and wire it accordingly. They are newer in design and made for the vibrations and lower RPM range. Their compact design should fit much better.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
