    Machine say what? What are you talking about?
    EDIT/Nevermind. Thanks Jim. I need to do this too. Along with your snazzy rebuilt rotor and the new battery and brushes I installed last year, My charging system should be solid afterwards

    Ten bucks for a rectifier? Sounds damn cheap, Jim.

    Machine, seems like I'm looking at the rectifier. What's it using for a heat sink, the frame? (Can't get my head around it right now. I'm working on a chick pen for 25 baby chicks I got coming.)

    Amazon has 3 phase rectifiers with heat sinks. Quite a few to chose from. upload_2020-3-24_12-8-36.png

    Well, it sure is! Thanks GLJ. Wonder if there is a particular one folks are having good luck with? I'll go take a look.

    20200223_164112.jpg Well not real visible in that pic. I stacked a short stack of both large diameter and small diameter washers behind it to act as cooling fins. Four copper washers of varying size are visible in front. Also I think the battery box will aid in cooling too.

    Edit kinda like the pic

    That's really cool and good thinking! Not much space needed either. I'm kinda leaning toward a bigger heat sink. Texas heat this summer has got me spooked! You know the rating of that little puppy off hand?
    Hows this PM thingy work, anyway. Just click on somebodys name and click "start a conversation"?

    Okay, I likely have covid-19 but since our state is inept they don’t have enough tests for everyone, so since I’m not high risk and I can still breathe, they won’t test me. No work for at least 7 days, and at least 3 days without fever after that. Good thing I didn't jump on that stupid special. I feel like an effin idiot.

    All right TZ, this is very concerning. Truly hope you take it easy and get back rolling again soon.
    Now, one question, Do you have enough toilet paper ?
    :laughing:
    And, don't be hard on yourself about that moment of desire for that Purple Special ! Clearly it was the onset of the virus
    :geek:
    Take care -Randy

    I have dug up the very first thing I ever turned a wrench on and decided to take some of the parts off of it. A QT-50. I robbed the horn so far. The system is a 6V so I think the horn is gonna fry eventually.

    I had a thought about robbing the handlebars off of it too. It might look interesting 20200325_185321.jpg

    I kind of want to see how goofy or groovy it would look.

    I wonder the same thing. I wonder whos hiding them. It's proving extremely hard to find side covers for this bike and I was lucky to find the tank.
