You did not mention your model number, however most generators do not have the 12v charging option. Those that do like yours generally use a seperate winding producing about 14volts ac which is passed thru a full wave bridge rectifier. This rectifier us usually mounted inside the panel usually against metal to absorb heat (gets hot while in use). Look for (about one inch square) rectifier and test with meter. Replacement can be of the Radio Shack variety. Good Luck

Alternator wiring diagram on farmall M tractor


from scratch... well are you using the factory style of alternator or something different as you didn't mention the age and it could be: 12 volt positive or negative ground, or, 6 volt positive or negative ground. Or do you have a starter/generator or ??? Further research suggest you have a generator which would mean you have a voltage regulator somewhere... SO please help us help you. We need to identify your system before we can help... Pictures would be great. Numbers would be good, type of battery would help...

I need to convert mu Puma PPH 30-10 air compressor from 220 Volt to 110 Volt wiring, but I do not have the owners manual or a wiring diagram for it. The Motor is a GE


If this is a 3HP I don't think you can switch it. However there is usually a wiring diagram under the square box on the side of the motor.

Want to add 240volt outlet to generator


You CANNOT do this, USA 240V is derived from a poly phase scenario, IE 120V line to neautral and 240V line to line, UK 240V is derived from 1 line to neutral it will not work unless you power a transformer

Bought a singer from the state but cannot be used in australia what should i do?


If it is an electronic or computerized machine, you are out of luck. USA has 110 volt 60Hz current, Australia has 220 volt 50Hz. A transformer can change 220 to 110 volts, but it cannot change 60Hz to 50Hz.

Where can I find a wiring diagram to install a generator into a boat? I know how to wite the 110 volt side but where do I connect the 12 volt power from the generator into the 12 volt distribution panel?


Installing a generator into a boat is critical to be done correctly. You need to contact the manufacturer of your generator for approval, and wiring diagrams. If done incorrectly (which if you are connecting 12v from gen), you may create eddy fields that can cause galvanic corrosion, not to mention electrical shock hazards.

If your generator isn't marine rated, then don't install it into a boat.

Portable generators can be used, but don't hardwire those into a boat. Just use extension cords to the appliances you want to power.

Wiring diagram - CS- 13 15 Brand is Ritmo


A wiring diagram would be rather exhaustive especially if going from an 80 pin or even the standard 40 pin IDE. I would recommend buying a converter. You can get them on Amazon for $15
