old subject- Voltage regulator

Recommended Posts

thirdjoker

I'm trying to locate a voltage regulator that will replace the original one on my landlord 101. The original part # is 122193. NLA. Looked at Delco P# 1118988= NLA. It looks like Briggs 295924 will work, but it has a different mount pattern. What are you using as a replacement. Thanks..

The last one I purchased a long time ago, I never used, still in box. Ace Electric Company VR-13914. It came with instructions on how to polarize generator to match battery.

I bought a new one with the two screw mounting pattern...I made a Triangular plate with standoffs (1/8 pipe worked great) to mount to the dash tower, and then mounted the regulator to that. This was on an RBT though, so not sure if you have enough clearance to the steering wheel in a FDT...

It seems like the replacement 2 coil regulators don't hold up well. The 2 coil style have scews directly through the cover and they don't seal well, resulting in moisture damage. I have a box of them here that have suffered that fate.

So how can the moisture damage be prevented. It seems that we only have 2 options, Pay $ 75 or take a chance.

Deere uses similar regulators on some of the ag tractor applications but they are rated at different voltages that may not be compatible with lawn and garden equipment. If you go with a 2 coil just be careful when washing the engine to avoid getting too much water on the regulator or pull the cover off and make sure its dry afterward. Don't leave it out in the rain without a hood either.

we used to have those regulators on cars, and they suffered same moisture damage, used to put a cut off bottom of milk/oil container or similar. Not pretty but effective. or could fabricate something nice out of wood .

I read an article in the archives here about cleaning the contacts in the regulator. Tried to no avail. I am also in the market for a regulator. Thanks for the link!

I have been charging the battery now and then for about a year. That price is a bit....., but will save aggravation, and will likely be worth it

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
