    The generator casing/internals is the same as those with the AVR module minus the AVR module and has the empty mounting space. So mounting would not be a factor. The AVR has 4 wires and I would suspect it would be a matter of knowing where to tap into the present wiring which as long as those tap in points are axcessible that I could do. I suppose I would need to either have the schemactic or another gen with the AVR module so that I could see where the 4 AVR module wires connect. ust wondering if anyone has done this before?
    thanks anyway

This is really not something you can do. There is a fair bit of engineering that would have to be done and then there is wiring and mounting, etc.

    Coleman 3500 with subaru engine no power to outlets

    Hello there.
    I'm assuming that engine runs fine. if there's no power output then the AVR or carbon brushes are dead. remove the back cover of the alternator very carefully and look at the center to find the rotor rings and check if the plastic brush holder hasn't melt or heat deformed and make sure the brushes make good contact against the rotor rings. if everything's fine then the AVR is dead. The AVR is a crescent shaped plastic container similar to this one.
    replace it with any similar found on Ebay, just make sure that connectors and cables are similar in shape and number. Regards

    Generator avr

    The AVR automatic voltage regulator normally gets damaged by a short in the rotor, wiring etc. MOST common is shutting the generator down under load and NO NO. The AVR goes wide open to try and maintain voltage on a gen that is stopping, always disconnect loads then shut off

    Your generator produces proper voltage and 60 cycles at 3600 rpm. Use meter to adjust voltage/engine rpm. If after adjusting rpm setting and gen. does not have proper power, remove cover to generator and examine brushes and commutator rings for wear and voltage regulator/rectifier for burned components swolen or leaking capacitor and replace parts as necessary. Parts are available Good luck

    I have a Coleman Powermate 6250. Runs Great, No power to outlets!

    Excite the genset.

    with the gen engine running,
    1) plug a 3/8 drill into an outlet,
    (make sure the drill is set to the forward rotation)
    2) hold the trigger in the run position
    3) by hand, rotate the drill chuck with a quick flip of your wrist.
    *** NOTE: BE PREPARED !!! this will excite the gen-set and the drill will start to run as normal.
