Default Re: G16 electrical issues

Starts and runs great with the change of the starter/generator.

Followed forum advice and ran the starter with the belt off for 30 seconds or so.

Now the problem is that the voltage regulator is clamping the charge voltage at 12.1v. Replaced the $9 Chinese regulator with the original one.

The engine starts and runs great but there is no voltage regulation. Measured voltage is 16.5+ and jumps around.

Appears that starter/generator was the come and go starting problem, the original regulator was not regulating properly and that I need a new one.

Guess I will follow forum advice and get an OEM version. Hate to spend $45 though.
