Diagnosis and Repair Generator on Tractor
Sitting outside unused for years was enough to stop this generator from working. In this video I show how to diagnose the issue, rule out possible causes like lack of proper polarization, full fielding, etc. I also give some quick terminology and basic theory of operation. I show some basic tests you can do with a simple meter, and jumper wires. I then show how to disassemble, inspect, and clean the generator. In a later video I cover the external voltage regulator.
