Charging voltage is much more stable with Compufire series type R/R. It varied by over 4 times as much and was also a bit excessive with stock shunt R/R at 14.65V~14.90V. It's now always between 14.38V and 14.44V (14.44V idle).
Stator cover which used to be at 205F~219F is now at 184F~187F while left cylinder head is at 197F~204F... Stator cover temperature is now more stable at about 26F cooler on average, and up to about 32F cooler.
With no extra electrically powered accessories, it's charging at full capacity at 1,300 rpm idle.
That's interesting. I guess I'm used to the old days when at idle it was a negative. I'm not very technical. What does your other post refer to? Is that with a change of some part(s)? The idea of lowering temps sounds positive but I don't know how it was done. Thanks for your input.
Some of us have replaced the stock shunt type regulator rectifier for a Compufire series type regulator rectifier, to reduce load and heat in the stator and extend its lifespan... Shunt type R/R has the generator consistently operating at maximum output and shunting all unrequired current to ground. With a series type R/R, generator produces no more than what is needed and drawn.
