    chopper wiring - Copy Points model.jpg
    Wiring in an A type, (points Model), SS Reg/Rect

    Some of the cheap Aftermarket SS Reg/Rectifiers are just that.....Cheap......they have been known to have problems so most guys on here change to Automotive regulators and a single 3 phase Bridge rectifier, or 2 single phase bridge rectifiers as per RG's, (Retiredgentleman), posts in the links below.

    As an Alternative to a SS combined Reg/Rect .............Read Retiredgentlemans posts from Post #3

    Post #2 some more Automotive Regulators that can be used for Points model bikes.

    3 Phase Bridge Rectifiers, some come with a heat sink.......35amp is all that's needed. The heat sink one is 50amp, it would work but there may be some 35's as well.....cheaper

    Would need to make your own heat sink .........35amp

    Another option would be to hit up Rich aka "DaddyGcycles" in the swap forum. He builds nice harnesses for reasonable price.
