I was wondering how to test a 6volt generator ?

the generator is on the tractor, i tried using a volt meter but i couldn't get any ready over 0.80 ? I know it should be giving around 8volts ? but it didn't know if there is any secrete to testing these ?.

I have a couple more old generators i can try out, i was just wont to make sure this one isn't working before i switch them out.

Thanks for any help

Old is really close. While spinning like he says, ground the F terminal to the case. It should slow down, but keep spinning.

on the tractor, you need to put a jumper wire on the "F" terminal and ground it to the frame/ battery. Take the "G" wire off. Start tractor and put a volt meter across the "F" and "G" terminals and you will get 12-15 volts. Put the "G" wire back on and if it is connected to the ampmeter/ battery, the voltage should go to 1 volt above battery voltage while it charges. 6=7 or 8=9.

Easy way to bench test one is this. Hook a battery up so that one side is grounded to the genny case and then take the other side and touch the post that is not marked field. If it motors as in spins the genny is good if it does not motor it is bad. Of course I am talking about a generator that has both a field post and another post

confirm the basics first....make sure volt meter is set for DC and not AC. It's an easy detail to overlook.
