Delks doesn’t have the current transformer pn
Mine was melted and a tar like substance has melted into a pool around it. I removed it re molded the tar like substance and encapsulated it with JB weld to keep the tar from running out when it gets warm. I have four 005s I recently purchased all of them are now running well and making power. The unit with the iffy transformer only makes power when I hold the start switch in to start position. As soon as I release the switch it stops making power. What might I look for. When this would happen on my 002s i usually had a on open or corrsosion in the generator head. Thanks in advance for any help
Hi guyfang, I read the Tm. The current transformer number 40 with the single hole in it only comes into play during parallel operation evidently. I repaired the three mouse chewed cables in the unit I took the transformer out of to put in the unit not making power.
Still not making power.
My mechanic said he doesn’t think the exciter circuit should be 24 volts but 18 to 20 volts.
I don’t appear to be getting voltage to the exciter circuit. I removed the special relay box everything inside looks good with the exception of a fusable link that is made into a pair of brass mounting block. The link is blown but instead of replacing the assembly it appears a new fusable link is now bolted across the top of the brass block completing the circuit.
I was thinking of going right off the battery to excite the generator to see if I can get it to produce 208volts
