  1. I can see, the upper slip ring has a deep groove. It is only worth to be done by yourself if you are able to replace the slip ring. If it's possible to get a generator on exchange base, do it.
  2. Yes, but without the diodes, which are very important in this application and which make it a DC application. This became a very theoretical discussion, which does not really help. Best to do is to put the generator out and test all mentioned points. Mud in the brushes, non-circular slip rings, short or interrupted diodes or connections. All this can be done stationary and measured ohmic.
  3. ok, no need to consult Wikipedia ๐Ÿ˜‰ The difference is that the generator in the car has an indication of whether a rotor current is flowing. Sometimes I had the problem with different generators that the slip rings weren't round anymore. The brushes therefore had no contact at higher revs due to jumping, but almost always when stationary. As I said before, the thing has to be out anyway. Then you can look for all possibilities.
  4. Please look at Wikipedia to see the differences between AC an DC Motors/Generators. but it doesn't matter anyway, because he has to look for the regulator and it is connected to the brushes. I would remove the generator completely and measure the diodes and the brushes on the workbench.
  5. Sorry, but the AC Motor in a washing machine is completely different! If the charge indicator lamp has 2W the current will be around 200 mA. Since the indicator is lighting before start, there must be going current through the brushes.
  6. No, because the current through the indicator lamp is the current through the brushes. When it lights, the brushes must have contact. Sounds like a diode.
  7. I owned 3 Citroen BX which have similar technics. When you waited to long with refilling nitrogen, the diaphragm inside the gas container got damaged and leaky. The gas container looks like Citroen. That means, if the diaphragm inside is gone, try to find a Citroen one if the thread fits. There existed the possibility to put a valve in the top of the gas container to refill it easily. Normally they died from loosing pressure slowly until the diaphragm got inside contact to the top of the container. Then there was friction to the diaphragm and made it leaky ... over. That means in most cases high pressure is gone. As I know from Citroen struts, they have some teflon seals inside. Makes it a bit special. I have two old self leveling units and will repair them ... someday ... yes, someday ๐Ÿคจ
  8. I had another idea. I think, that geometry in the OD is given and good. Your problem points to worn clutch liner inside the clutch. It possibly slips, because the bars at the hydraulic cylinders and the studs inside the springs restrict the way, the clutch can travel. Due to the missing liner it starts slipping. That means in my eyes, if you put a washer between the bars and the studs (allowing the studs to travel more), the clutch will get contact again. The work can be done with mounted OD and shows definitely whether the clutch is gone, due to all that slipping. This is a test, to get information, what's really wrong. If it still slips, its not the clutch.
  9. Everyone has to decide himself and of course, I did not see your panels. I just report my friends experiences and he has a lot.
  10. Normally it should build around 30 bar. Pump is running always, but if the solenoid is not engaged, the oil will go through a bypass back into the sump. If this bypass is blocked a little bit, there will be more pressure than almost 0 bar (lets say 5) and make the clutch slipping in disengaged mode, because the springs can't press the clutch to the cone as much as it is possible.
  11. @snagger yes, you are right. One never knows. But keep in mind, that even chinese factories are producing A, B and C Parts. Not all of them have the same quality but look the same.
  12. another idea: whats about the distance between the one way roller clutch and the pinion carrier? If it is to big, you could have the effect, that the cone clutch can't reach the annular carrier so easy. If its only 1 mm thicker, the spring will lose force, but gears are still in mesh. Just an idea.
