Default honda gx340 charging coil

guys, i want to add the 3 amp charging coil to my pull start honda gx340 (actual honda engine) to charge a battery. my question is does the pull start flywheel have the magnets for the charging system or will i need to change the flywheel too. also, what is used for a regulator. thanks....

I don't know but am guessing you need the flywheel. There is a diode that changes that AC to DC power is all thats on there. Its a little square thing on clones that bolts to the block down low. There is no regulator you don't need to with that low of a charge amperage. You can leave a 4A battery charger on a battery for days for the same reason. Eventually it might overcharge it but will take a long time and odds are you will not run the engine higher rpm for that long. 3A barely makes enough to charge for starting many people have to charge it every month or so, and if you use lights it will not charge enough. However I'm told with the clones (that are a copy of honda) you can put two 3A coils on there for 6A. The honda parts to go larger charging are very expensive and you need to buy the flywheel and coils for them, there are 3 different charge systems for honda GX....unless you get lucky and find a used one to take it off of. The new honda GX are a different engine, all new.

Or you can use a stock cart gen or car alternator to charge if you get a pulley on it.

You'd need something like this.

But an alternator is a better choice in all respects.

Your best bet is to fabricate a mount and use the stock alternator and clutch. The charging system on the clones is very weak.

In my never ending quest to improve the clones, Ive decided to try a 16v racing battery without an alternator to see how long I can go without charging it. So far, on 1 16v battery Ive been able to use headlights and start the engine without charging for almost a month...Not Bad :)

The benefits of 16v are awesome, the engine cranks over at nearly 1000rpm and starts instantly!

The cheapest way out is likely to buy a clone flywheel then two of the 3A coils, that gives you 6A. Most of the clone parts are pretty reasonable. Or fab a car alternator to it as they are cheap for older model rebuilts.
