I am getting closer to finishing up a 1948 Cub and I am at the Generator now. I just purchased a Generator for it with the brackets. It's a Delco Remmy 1101355 8G14 and I am getting a 14v reading off of it. I thought that they were 6V Gennys. Is it possible that someone wired it 12v?

It does have a cut out on it and I have cleaned all the grounds and all the coonections and ran emory cloth through the contacts on the cut out as well. I have a Magneto on the the tractor and jump start it with a 12v battery for now until I figure out which way to go. I disconnect the battery after starting the tractor. What is up? Do I have a cross breed genny or what? Is it working right for a 12v system if so I will go 12v.



If your system does in fact use a cutout rather than a voltage regulator you may be very lucky that you only had 14 volts after disconnecting the battery.
The battery acts as a voltage control in a system that uses a cutout rather than a voltage regulator. In a system without a voltage regulator there is no voltage control other than an electrical load that uses the amperage that the generator provides. Once you remove the battery the recharging load is gone and there is nothing to limit how high the voltage will go. Usually that limit is reached when the voltage becomes high enough to create a short circuit.

So which battery does it take a 12v or a 6v?
