Don, Bob M who posts on here frequently provided me the directions for polarizing my battery on 6 volt positive ground systems. Per Bob M - "Polarize the generator after all connections have been made (including the battery), but before starting the engine. Simply jumper the GEN and BAT terminals at the regulator. You need only touch for an instant (you may see a small spark) and polarization is complete."
I made my jumper wire from a 5" piece of insulated 14 gauge house wire and bared each end about a half inch to bare copper to touch the two terminals as noted above. I think this is all you need to get it working if your wiring is installed correctly and you generator and requlator are in working order, Hal.

 Re: Generator Polarize in reply to farmallhal, 01-30-2013 11:28:45  
Thanks for all the help so far. As per the instruction section and the directions so far, I got the spark when jumping a wire from the BAT terminal to the GEN terminal on the voltage regulator. But to no avail. I still get no charge on the ammeter when I started the engine, and ran it up to speed. Checking the voltage across the BAT terminal and ground also showed no change in voltage of about 6.5 volts from the battery, no matter what the engine speed was. So now I guess I have to figure out if the generator or voltage regulator is bad. I am at step 5.a) Voltage Regulator System: in the instructions. Where might I find a new voltage regulator or generator if thats what I need?
