1948 Indian voltage regulator??
« on: June 19, 2021, 06:31:59 PM »
Hello all-   I'm hoping someone can answer me this??   The original 1948 6 volt Auto lite voltage regulator had 4 connecting points.  A/F leads from generator- and B/T.  B went to battery and the T was used for generator light indicator I assume. My ? is this. The new generators sold for Indians now have only A/F/B.... Where is the wire for the indicator light attaching???
Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks Bob

Best thing is to ask the maker/seller of the new generator (Cycle Electric?)  where it goes? I seem to recall the instructions were very comprehensive.
 I can't help personally as mine's a 346 and has no gennie light as standard, but I'll see if I can dig out the instructions later tomorrow if it helps.

And, by the way,,,, This is not a new generator... This is an original 3 brush 6 volt Auto lite generator.  I t has a newer voltage regulator on it.

Ah OK, I can't help with that. The original dynamo mine came with was a two-brush rather than a three brush though, and the "regulator" was nothing more than the little cut-out box piggy-backed on top of the dynamo.
I went for a new Cycle Electric dynamo as the old charging system was the Achilles Heel of the bike and left me stranded more than once.
