6v regulator hook up

Postby joe » Sun Sep 07, 2014 12:45 pm

replacing Pinney's regulator on his sprint. he currently has a non-working 12v regulator (6v system). the 6v we got looks like this. I have no clue what to what to hook to where in the junction back. help :)

I think I have used these before. I left a message on your phone.hookup depends on the original wiring.
Will call you again.

hooked up, lights works, but running like crap. do you like timing might be the issue, or the stator doesn't like the regulator?

as we discussed...
- the poor running can't be the 6v voltage reg since that is for the lights

there must be a short causing this issue...
- between the spark plug and stator
- a poor ground @ HT coil or CDI to engine
- the kill button / key terminal is shorting out
- a short along the length of the kill button wire or in junction box

I would start @ spark plug cap and replace it even if it looks OK
I'll check to see if I have extra

good luck

Pinney needed his points replaced. The TDC team got him going with bright lights!
