mosely regulator adjustment

Post by Bob Chamberlain » Thu May 31, 2018 12:38 pm

I tested the output of my generator (MO-6) and it is producing about 12 to 14 volts AC power the regulator is plumbed in but not adjusted do I simply turn down the bonnet cap screw and adjust down to what voltage 3 volts 6 volts would like to run a small bulb behind the water glass. for night runs any suggestions thanks.

As I recall, you would low the pressure by turning the regulator CCW to slow the speed down. Start by testing as you watch the voltage, if it is going down then you going the right way.

if you don't have a Zener diode I the might consider it -> to keep from over-volting the bulb should the pressure(s) get out of control
