Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
I found my frame numbers, but some were very difficult to read.Vehicle identnr. is on the right front of the frame. You can see it looking in the front right wheel well behind the front cab mount. WDB419........
I would suspect the problem is a faulty voltage regulator. I looked up the FLU voltage regulator for a friend a while back and I think it was around $50.00 at EI.Reading about scored cylinder walls makes my quest for finding a charging issue seem pleasant in comparison.
Took another stab at it yesterday, (still) thinking it could be ground related. Anyway, what happens is that the voltage generally pegs the gauge at or shortly after startup. Quickly turning the master switch off and on again a few times usually fixes it. Or the voltage drops by itself after a while.
When it does drop it goes down to about 26 volts, so not as high as it should be. It can also go back up occasionally, which isn't a big deal when running the snowblower, for example. Then it's obvious from the rapid wiper movement and increased heater fan speed. When running the backhoe it isn't.
Well, it sort of was when still running regular wet batteries. Then the smell was a good (but late) indicator.
Anyway, yesterday's backhoe work was slow, since the engine rpm had to be kept at about 800, to keep the voltage at 30 or less. Sure would be nice to get this issue fixed before the snow comes down for real.
Awesome thank you! I have been looking at that site and that’s the way I am going to go!Thanks, Duecerider.
No, the quick tach setup was bought from palletforks.com, then just modified a bit to fit the loader. It was primarily installed to be able to run the snow blower, but is obviously useful for all kinds of attachments.
If you do, in retrospect I should've just bought the cheaper 2-piece setup.Awesome thank you! I have been looking at that site and that’s the way I am going to go!
