Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeYes, "just put full voltage on the generator field" is acceptable, as this is exactly what is being done by regulator at times. Voltage measured under these conditions will largely depend on charge state of the battery, however. If you were to disconnect battery to ARM then generator voltage can reach damaging levels under full field conditions (>20 volts) & in a short time damage gen & regulator. I would NOT recommend such a disconnect.

A GM manual gives "set point" voltages for the VR and also "upper acceptable' voltages, with that being 7.6 volts. It is primarily to prevent overcharging the battery.

Thanks jmor that is good information. I think lots of guys here will benefit knowing how to check out generators. In the case of B systems, I would only use the full voltage to field test for a short time to determine if the generator was at fault. As far as the voltage over the spec in my case, I use the tractor seldom and not for long running times either. I might be satisfied using the higher voltages in order to keep the battery fully charged. I would not think a battery would be damaged in that way with charging voltages up to 8 volts even. I appreciate your input!
