LD1 Startomatic Charge rate switch info wanted
« on: December 01, 2019, 07:34:35 AM »
Hi all, on my unit, the charge rate switch in the alternator cubical is non-existent. I wonder if someone could point me to a photo that shows the wording of the fascia plate so that I can fabricate one, please. The charge resistor is in the box so itís just a matter of fitting an appropriate switch and fascia.

Did you do anything about your charge rate/ammeter I have a 2.5kw CS which also has very little charge rate showing but the batteries are getting charged as it starts as and when asked.

This is a picture of the charge switch off a 4.5 kw Startomatic top box.

Have you located a control box choke yet as I have a spare one that I dont need.

Sorry, Mick, I never got back to you on this. My harddrive failed an I lost all of my forum and list membership details. have only just returned to this forum. Also with the Covid crisis I have been kept busy with other matters and the Lister has taken a back seat.

I did not get a control panel and when I last worked on the lister, I had been gathering parts to put together a control unit with modern parts. I presume you are in the U.S. so shipping to Australia would be pretty expensive.

Thanks for the photo of the charge rate switch

Cheers
Dave
