I had generator rebuilt and bought a new regulator. Well did'nt seem to charge so had all checked again. (about 8 months after buying) and was told the regulator was faulty. Seems the points don't close untill you tap it alittle. Is there an adjustment I can do to fix this or should I just get a new one??

If you H is a very old model, it will have a "cut out" relay instead of a voltage regulator. If it is equipped this way it will have a High-Low charge rate on the light switch in the first two positions on the light switch, this will be before the lights turn on. It is a common problem with these to not charge properly if they do not ground from the light switch to the switch cover plate, the oblong one, and from the cover plate to the box on the steering colmum that it mounts to.

Hope this helps.

Richard, that regulator should have either a screw adjustment for the points gap or a spring where you slightly bend the arm that the spring is attached to. In your case, you need less spring tension or adjust the gap on the points slightly smaller. Just make sure the points are opening when you shut down the tractor.

Indy has been in a horrible heat wave since late June. You have to go back to the drought of 1988 to find a hotter summer. I haven't done much wrenching this summer.
