C12 - fuse
« on: November 29, 2008, 09:01:37 am »
the c12 is running on 12V with one 10A fuse.
when I start the engine everything is OK,but after a few minutes (going in higher revs)
I have to put another fuse
Is there a short circuit or do I have to put a fuse with a higher A?

Given the equasion V/I=R 12vX10 amps=120whats far in exess of your required current ither the regulator is probably faulty<zenner diode> or non exsistant unless you have an intermitent short BP

How can I check if there is a short circuit?
Or how can I check the powermodule?

Unfortunatly a intermitant short is extreemly hard to find you need to check the wireing where it passes through metal partsto ensure insulation is not dammaged. the regulator can be checked with a multimeter theese are now innexpensive and very handy. yoy shouldnot get moorthanabout 14-15 volts when reved up BP

According to Roy Bacon's "Restoration of unit singles", there should be a 35A fuse.
