Voltage Regulator compatibility question

Recommended Posts


I am in the process of upgrading and replacing all electrical components on my HB-212.  I was wondering if I can successfully replace the old box style regulator with this newer style and still get the same/better performance?

Doesn't look like an improvement to me. Its designed to work with a stator rather than a generator. If the old regulator is functioning I would leave it as-is, at least that's my opinion.

Stick with the old one. If you want to, you can take the cover off and clean the contacts with some 320 sandpaper. Other than that, its a pretty foolproof system...hard to upgrade it in my opinion.

Somewhere on this site there is an article or two on how they work and how to adjust.  Do a couple of searches.  Also on the web there were a couple of places that had Delco two and three coil regulator tech sheets and set-up instructions.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
