A voltage regulator takes current from a battery with oscillating voltage and puts out constant voltage. Six-volt generators and 12-volt alternators require current at voltages. Fluctuation in voltage can harm these electrical mechanisms. A tractor’s regulator takes the voltage provided by the battery, manages it by reducing it, and sends it on to the alternator or generator at a constant volume that the alternator sends on to the coil. There are three wires that must be connected to the correct regulator terminal.
Weld the regulator mount to the tractor frame. Weld the mount between the alternator or generator mount and the coil housing. Follow the regulator manual’s mounting instructions for the proper positioning of the mount. Some recommend a vertical mount while others require horizontal positioning.
