Has any one had any alternator problems on a 1800 Battery not charging

Post by LOBO » Tue Jul 31, 2018 12:23 am

My battery was pulled down to 11 volts
Recharged and tested to 200 amp load
Installed in x and runs but only at 12.6 volts
Was wondering if there was any issues with regulator or state
Thanks lobo

I killed a reg a few years back - put new bulbs in driving lights and it just couldn't keep up and that was the end of that - cost me a day off a sicamous run - I *think* (term used lightly) it was three years ago - when researching the issue, every lead I got mentioned how bulletproof the stator assembly is and that reg is way more common failure - do you have the FSM??

I have the service manual and suspected the regulator ,hoping its not the stator.its time to get the volt meter,manual and a cold one and dig in.

biggest failure to charge on the 1800 is the battery cables. Remove , clean , clean again and tighten back on

It was the regulator /Rectifier . Still on order should be in today. Thankfully not the stator...
At Least that's what my trusty multimeter told me...I guess after 130000 kms its done a lot of regulating.
