Thanks for the welcome and reply! So your telling to take two of the wires from the regulated AC side, attached them to the rectifier, and run ground wire back to the capacitor? Tom Okay, here's a little diagram of how its set-up now. Since the frame can have only AC or DC. So why the hell is my DC voltage climbing with RPM's when the AC voltage is staying down?
OK, yes I have searched until my eyeballs have bleed. I'm a cheap bastid, so here my question: Can a full wave bridge rectifier be used with the stock AC regulator? 'Cause I've tried every way imaginable to wire it in, and lord help me that I can't get it right. And I'm pretty proficient with electronics, or so I thought. The rectifier is a 25A, 50V one from Radio Shack. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tom
