I do have the old ample info on the boat and can send it along if you need it.. what are you trying to find out? the terminal wiring?
Steve and Hollywood, thank you!!!
We are talking about the V2 manual, correct? The V3 manual is available on line, but the connections are different.
Yes, I'm first and foremost looking for the terminal wiring, but ideally I'd like to see the whole thing. I'll PM you both with my snail- and e-mail addresses, I'd appreciate seeing the manual whichever way is easier for you to send it.
I know I can buy a new regulator, but I want to see if I can get the one I've got working, first. The story is, I have two perfectly good 40A alternators with internal regulators already installed and working fine. I picked up a used 100A alternator along with the Ample regulator. I'd love to upgrade, which would allow one of the mains to charge the house bank faster. But it's not really enough of a priority to buy a new regulator right now.
