Hi can anyone help, I'm having trouble with the voltage regulator on my Austin ten. Either its off (no charge at all) or charges uncontrollably up to 20amps on the ammeter, no cut off
Its a new/replacement regulator, the wiring is correct (I think!- there were'nt as many terminals on this one), the dynamo charges OK. Is it anything to do do with the two screws on the top- tried adjusting, nothing happens.

One possible explanation is that the shunt coil in the regulator is open circuit. It is connected between the D and E terminals. Having said that so does the shunt coil in the cut-out so you would need to disconnect one from the E terminal in order to determine whether it's O/C or not.

Is it a 2 or 3 brush dynamo? ( if you don't know can you read they dynamo model number?) and what control box / regulator are you using? you may have a later control box trying to regulate a 3 brush dynamo. Some where on the forum I did post how to set control box's up.
