P220G Stator Output Voltage OK? OEM or Aftermarket Voltage Regulator

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I know my voltage regulator is bad on my Onan P220 and was wondering if anyone has an opinion on a replacement, OEM or aftermarket? 

Also, I checked my stator leads for AC Voltage and got about 25 volts at 3600 rpm on each. Is this OK? I know it says in the 40’s.

Thanks guys

25VAC is on the low side, but it should keep the battery charged if you haven't added  aux. lights.   I have used the $20 JUNGLE regs and never had a problem.

You said you have 25 volts on each lead. Are checking with one probe on one lead and the other to ground? You should be checking the voltage across both leads. Red probe on one lead, black on the other. Make sure the meter is in the AC mode.

That was silly! I tested each lead to ground! Will check both but I assume the stator’s fine. I know I have a bad ac leg in the voltage regulator.

      I am looking for the gear reduction steering assembly from a 520.  Need at least the upper and lower shafts, mounting pedestal and fasteners and front bearing.  Willing to consider package deals to include front swept axle and big spindles and tie rods too.
       
      Located in north eastern Ohio.
       
      Thanks!

      My 520H blow out a valve seat.  Any suggestions on a new motor or should I have the seat repaired?

      I am in search of a decent 60" deck.
      I would prefer a newer style classic deck with mule or an XI deck.
      If a C-195 Deck will work on a classic, I can do that too!
       
      Tractor optional...i have classic and xi options available for mounting.
       
      I prefer pickup within 500miles of Syracuse but will go farther if I must.
       
      Cash in hand.

      I went out to use my 520H with blower this evening and it won't start.  I used this machine a few days ago (for the first time this winter).  The battery has been on a trickle charge so I don't think that's the problem.  It's done this before where it won't start, won't start, and then starts.  Usually that is in cold weather and after I've previously used it to blow snow.  I don't have a heated garage so I think it might have some ice somewhere that was introduced as water the last time I blew snow.
       
      Here's what it's currently doing.  When I turn the Ignition to 'On' the red warning lights and the dashs light all come on.  When I turn the key to start position I get a single 'Click' and nothing more.  I tried jumping it from a hot battery just to rule out a bad battery.  Same behavior.  Following some of the other threads about 520s with trouble starting, I pulled the blue wire off the starter solenoid.  If I run a jumper wire from the (+) side of the battery directly to the solenoid I get the same behavior (regardless of key being in on or off position)- small spark where my jumper wire is touching the battery terminal and a single click.  
       
      I'm unsure what this means about the solenoid and if that, in any way tests, the starter.  Could it be that my starter is bad/frozen?  I tried using a heat lamp to warm up that area, but in this weather (and my garage, which is really just a tarp shed) that just isn't going to work.  
       
      I've downloaded the demystification guide and started looking at it but I'm hoping someone might have some suggestions.  Snow is falling and I'm not making much headway on this.  
       
      Thanks
