C-80 generator field dlashing, 1953

#1 Post by Wonderdog » Wed Aug 24, 2016 11:14 pm

I must be rusty, but can I flash the field of this a/c. Grounds are good, but discovered, main gen to engine ground, disconnected. Might have blown the volt regulator.

Also, it should be possible, to make both the 1953 C-180 and the sister ship, 1958 C-180, have similar electrical charging systems.

Thanks for the input on this, but it's nice to still use machines for fishing and work,

Be well

Stephen

You could try with a 9v battery.

Yeah... Real helpful guys. I totally don't understand the questions either, but maybe lets ask for some clarification rather than insulting the guy.

Wonderdog, can you try to explain better what you're asking?

How to flash the gen field on a C-180? Blown voltage regulator? Not sure what you want to know.

Flashing the field with a 9v battery instead of your aircraft battery. the 9v shouldn't damage anything. Lower potential.
