Help! My Mosley generator will not light my bulbs.

Post by McNown » Sat Jun 23, 2018 9:54 pm

Can anyone help me or guide me? I have a Mosley generator on my Mogul. It Was working great with nice lights and then I heard a little noise coming from it then back to a normal sound but no lights. It does light the lights but they are very, very dim. It still spins but I can tell if its a full spin or not. Are they easy to take a part? Any tricks?

Thanks,

Jeff

I suspect that the alternator diodes have gone out to lunch. You may have over loaded it a bit. That generator does not put out a lot of current.
