HELP! My old crew and auto electrical expert, now racer himself, is still
in Connecticut (Hi, Jim) & I'm stumped by this conversion.
Last weekend, my tach-drive gear box decided to go bouncing down the track
as I pulled into the pits after Saturday's last race. Lost. How it came
off is unknown. But, this is pushing me into installing the mini 1-wire
alternator I've had sitting on the parts shelf for a year. I need to do
some minor mods to get it to fit. But, they're easy. Problem is how to
deal with the wires on the regulator.
I found a description on line about connect brown wires, etc. But, no
all-brown wires on the Turner regulator. And, the standard Sprite wiring
diagrams don't help a lot.
If anyone could help, I would appreciate it.
Here's what I have on the regulator terminals:
A1 - 2 brown/blue wires
A - 1 brown/white
F - 1 yellow/green
D - 2 yellow
E - 2 black
Turner has already been converted to 12v negative ground. And, as a race car
has an emergency shut-off switch.
