hi all
i have a early motorcycle which has a wipac 6volt permanent magnet alternator which i would like to convert to 12 volts with a regulator/rectifier.
this has 3 coils, two are used to power headlight and one to charge battery
the two are wired in parallel and the single coil is connected to a rectifier
the two coil are at 7 and 5oc on the photo and the single coil is at 6oc
(the top one is the HT ignition coil)
but this is where im stuck, the rotor has 6 magnets each cover two coils at a time when rotating.
so how can i wire the 3coils together to get a reasonable AC sine wave to feed the R/R ?
