    What do u guys suggest for fuse size for the direct wire i have coming from the center pole on the rectifier to the battery?its not powering anything else other thenn the charging of the battery.

    I do blv i fixed it i ran a direct hot wire to the battery then to the center pole on the rectifier volts was 14 just like the 2 other 520s i have so i gues next snow we will just find out.any how that leads me to finding out what the wire is for thay was hooked to the hot on the rectifier 🤔as i know that the stator is hooked to the poles it needs to be an the morron that had this b4 me has that part of the wiring a mess

    Tryed replacing fuses nothing changed so far way it reads is on a cont test it shouldnt ring out which it didnt so the rectifier was replaced im un sure of what it could be their was a few niks in the copper windings but none of them was cut in half

    I hope its not in the stator but i didnt ohm it out and i dont have a onan manual yet just hoping its somthing small nothing big and expensive but im sure that will be my x mass gift this year lol

    Well i installed my new amazon rectifier and its the volt meter is still readind 12 volts when i turn lights on it reads around 11.8 or so even when i throttle up i cleaned the the wires leading into the rectifier also the ground wire up by the dip stick tube the battery hasnt went dead yet but my gut is telling me theirs still an issue with my charging system that i would really love to solve b4 next snow fall

    Meter on the tractor read 12 volts when i started it but never thought to look when my lights went dim and started to run crappy charged the battery lights r bright again and purrs like a kitten but have yet to run it like i was when this happened.i did order a cheap rectifier off amazon hoping that solves the issue i have replaced the molex plug as the old 1 was bad everything was tripple checked and my freind that does electrical checked it and om'd it out all was good hoping its somthing simple
  11. Me and my son was plowing snow yesterday an about 2 hours mabe less or more but i noticed my head lights going dim then it started to run like crap becouse i have an electric fuel pump. I shut tractor down let it cool the tryed to start it again in which it just clicked didnt have the juice to turn motor over so hooked jumpers fired right up what would the likely culprit be the stator or the rectifier.thanks for any and all help guys
  12. Thank u sire i couldnt see the clip
  13. As the title says reason i am trying to remove it is i am putting a snow plow on and i have the longer bar to have downward pressure any help would be grate thank u all
