New alternator and regulator still not charging

Postby Fourwheelinj1 » Tue Feb 11, 2020 8:53 am

I have a YM240 that I saved from the woods. I finally have most all the issues fixed except the charging system. The old alternator was locked up with rust so I manually freed it up but the battery wasn't getting any charging so I replaced the alternator. After installing new alternator the battery still wasn't getting any charge so I performed the attached test and the voltage reading kept climbing using the testing procedure. I think the reading at the end when I quit was over 17 volts. So i replaced the voltage regulator and the battery is still isn't getting any charge. I haven't had a chance to rerun the test yet but as of now I have a new battery, new battery cables, new hoye alternator and hoye voltage regulator and still not charging. Thoughts? ... ?kb_att=30

Most likely you have a bad connection somewhere. I would unplug all of the plastic wire harness plugs and check them out really well or test the wires with an ohm meter.
