I have been looking through a lot of posts about this subject, but it's still not clear to me how to correctly adjust a 6V 3 brush generator.
The serive manual states: "The following maximum rates specified are battery charge over equipment loads indicated, which do not include sidecar lighting, using test ammeter at battery ground. A standard generator should have a charging rate of about 4A."
Does this mean: -put an ammeter between the battery groun cable
-start the engine
-switch on the lights
-read the ammeter, let's say it indicates -8A (discharge)
-rev up the engine equivilent to 55-60 mph cruising
-the ammeter should read -8A + 4A = -4A (discharge, so after 22Ah/4 = 5,5 hours your engine dies.......)
Another question, I have a fuse in the positive wire, so can I out the ammeter here instead?
Thanks in advance,
