Do I have a charging system?

Recommended Posts

Late 80’s Merc 25 with Elec Start

I don’t even get a blip of a change on my voltage from not running to WOT (except a drop when starting).

I’m guessing I should be able to locate a rectifier of some sort. Is it under the flywheel on this one?

I’ve heard that all elec start motors should have a charging system.

It’s not a huge deal as it starts with one pull if I ever did drain my battery, would be nice to utilize it though if it is there.

It should have some form of a rectifier on it... I believe they're a square shaped box with a couple of posts on it...

Look for 2 yellow wires coming from under the flywheel. If they are there, you have a charging system.

If there is the 2 yellow wires, then yes there is a rectifier. The yellow wires will run to it.

Voltage regulator and rectifier are pretty much the same thing I thought. When you have a stator under the flywheel and then a black box on the side, that is considered a voltage regulator. If all of it is tucked under the flywheel, I will throw in the term alternator crazy, I think.

I do not know, but it sounds like the Pro's have her under control.

I know for Dtro, it would be a great added feature to charge things while letting the motor run grin

That is correct.. you usually have a stator and a rectifier. The rectifier also handles the voltage regulation as well typically.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
