Starters & Voltage Regulators

Recommended Posts

73simplicity
I have a sovereign that has a bad starter and regulator but I had a broadmoor that had a good starter and regulator. I took both off before I got rid of it. The sovereign has a triple pole regulator and the broadmoor has a double pole regulator but since I'm using the broadmoor starter AND regulator there shouldn't be any problem, right? I've seen the diagram simpletractors.com has for voltage regulators but I still can't figure out where all the wires go. I know where the field wire, the armature wire and the battery wire goes but the other two as illustrated in the picture I have no idea where to attach them. I broke one of the brackets but I think i put enough tape on it to keep it from contacting the frame.

Thanks Tom but I still have one question If they design the regulators so the chassis doesn't make contact to the frame then doesn't the braided wire compromise this design?

You'll note the rubber mounting strips for the regulator. This is to reduce the vibration interference with the relays inside. Hence, the regulator still needs a ground connection, so it is a very common practice to use high flex braided wire to make it so. My military 12V DC generator has the entire regulator board suspended on tension springs and all wires coming off it are braided with stacks of ceramic spacers covering them for insulation. I'm still checking on that bottom 4th terminal. Patience, Tom(PK)

Hi, Many of the 2 pole regulators had an L or acc terminal on the fromt row and the terminal underneath was the gen or arm terminal and the armature was connected to it. The a or l terminal on the front was unused. If this underneath terminal has G or GEN on it then that is where the armature terminal goes. On almost all of the Broadmores I remember working on the A trem of the starter gen went to the bototm term. I believe it you take the cover off you will find these terminals are connected together. One thing the Broadmore starter it the short frame and will have about 20 to 25 % less torque than the long frame starter that was on the Soveriegn originally. My 2 cents worth and it is free, value accordingly. Al Eden

      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.
