Wiring a solid state rectifier

Wiring a solid state rectifier

Post  Bid on Thu Mar 24, 2011 11:53 am

Hi Guy’s
Sorry same old cherry, the rectifier (28040) on my 1964 Cruiser89 (4T engine) has fell apart on rebuild so I have bought a KBPC35-04 solid state rectifier to replace it.
The bikes original rectifier has 4 terminal as per wiring diagram 40605 Villiers Manual 225T-2 and is wired as follows:

Top
Terminal 1 blue, 2 yellow wires- 1 from lighting switch the other to/from terminal 4

Terminal 2 yellow, 1 black wire from generator

Terminal 3 yellow, 2 wires- 1 red from generator 1 green to/from lighting switch

Terminal 4 blue, 1 yellow wire to/from terminal 1
Bottom

The solid state rectifier only has 4 terminals 2 AC and 2 DC.
How do I wire this correctly for everything to work with one rectifier? Or do I need 2 solid state rectifiers to get it to work properly?

Any help would be very much appreciated

Regards

Paul

Paul,

Did you manage to make any progress with this project? My 4T engined Cruiser is also fitted with the original 28040 rectifier, although in my case there are two to suit the Villiers high output generator which provides LT power from all the coils. The rectifiers on my machine work ok, but there is a small reverse flow so at some time I will have to replace them. I did ask several suppliers of modern rectifiers whether they were suitable for the Villiers engine, but none of them were able to confirm this. Sandy Ross

Wiring a solid state rectifier

Hi Sandy,
The bikes about 80% finished now, had to take a few months out to prepare the ground for a new big workshop shed and then line it, as her indoors complained the garage was always rammed full of bike bits etc.
I'm back on the case now and presently trying to sort the wiring out, but I still need to sort the air cleaner, many thanks for the pictures you sent me I'd like to give you a ring if thats ok? with a few more questions etc.

Regards
Paul

Solid state rectifier

Post  Guest on Fri Apr 01, 2011 9:49 am

To Sandy

I have fitted two solid state rectifiers to my 4T turbo twin with no bother, I have also rewired the four coils to give the high output and converted to coil ignition so that I have a garenteed spark.

Seems to work OK
