DC generators

My foot clutch DC has a generator with a fuse in base of the voltage regulator just like on my LA and older DC's and SC's. The owner's manuals for the older models show the fuse but the manual for the Eagle Hitch model talks about a different generator. None of the books mention what size fuse to use. Is the fuse just tied to the regulator? Not that it makes much difference but do we know if all late model DC's should have the newer generator? If I put an unfused regulator on my generator (the manuals talk about two and three brush units)will it still work? Thanks for all your help

Case DC's after s/n 5500000 used a different generator than previous DC's. An Autolite GHD6001-C was used along with a different regulator. The later regulator does not have a fuse in it. The cover of the regulator is attached with two screws near the gasket rather than one center screw. The later regulator has the word AUTOLITE stamped into the cover and mounts to the generator with three screws that incorporate little rubber isolators. The later model generator is a three brush unit. An earlier regulator may work, if it will properly mate to the mounting screws. I do not know what size fuse is in the older regulators. Bruce

Thanks Bruce. I imagine the fuse protects the regulator? Will a regulator without the fuse function on a generator designed for a regulator with a fuse? Will the generator function if the regulators are switched around?

If both generators are the three brush type and you can get the regulators attached to the generator, I can't see why they would not work. Bruce

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
