Starter/generator

Post  lhp4163 on July 29th 2014, 4:05 pm

I.m installing the delco starter generator on the 10hp tecumseh. A diagram I have shows a regulator( relay ) but no selinoid? On the frame of the tractor is a selinoid under the dash. It has a togel switch and a push started button. Do I need both to properly wire this starter? Please give me some advise!

WIRING FOR A STARTER/GENERATOR COMPINATION

Post  Georgia SS on July 29th 2014, 6:29 pm

TOLD YOU THAT YOU HAVE JUMPED ON A BEAR. THE TRACTORS THAT USED A STARTER/GEN. COMBINATION USED AN IGNITION SWITCH WITH TWO LARGE TERMINALS TO CONNECT THE POS. BAT. TERMINAL TO AND THE CABLE TO THE STARTER, THE IGNITION KILL WIRE, LIGHTS AND ACCESORIES, CONNECTED TO OTHER SMALL TERMINALS ON SWITCH. PROBABLY WON'T FIND A NEW SWITCH LIKE YOU NEED. NO PROBLEM GET A SWITCH FOR A SEARS ST16 OR ALMOST ANY TRACTOR WITH FLYWHEEL MAGNETO IGNITION. SWITCH WILL NEED TO BE GROUNDED, ALSO A SOLONOID FOR A OLD MODEL FORD OR OTHER EQUIPMENT, A SOLONOID IS A SOLONOID. THE SMALL ONE FOR MOST ALL NEWER MOWERS WITH 1/4" TERMINALS WILL WORK FOR A BIT, WIRING DIAGHRAMS ARE AVAILABLE ALL OVER. DON'T NEED A VOLT.REG. TO MAKE TRACTOR OPERATE. PROBABLY BE BETTER OFF SPENDING THE MONEY FOR A VOLT.REG. ON A SLOW CHARGER IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE. STARTER GEN. REPAIR SHOP TOLD ME DELCO MADE A STARTER GEN. COMBINATION THAT IS NOT GOOD FOR EITHER.
HAVE A GOOD ONE

I'm determined to make this thing go! I've lucked up; a friend down the road from me has too Sears Suburbans 12 hp with starter/gen on them; and they work; i will wire mine up exactly like them; it should work, don't you think? The chassie from which this engine came off has everything still in tack; switches solonoid; just need to know what goes where.

at best the starter / generator will put out around 5 amps. the reason there is no solonoid ,the switch is built heavy enough to handle the amp draw for the starter. a solonoid is basically an extention of the starter switch activated by a lighter gauge wire. think about how big your car's steering column would have to be to make room for wire size 0 gauge or bigger and how big the ignition switch would have to be. always glad to help when able. sounds like your off to a good start. > tim
