DR44G Self Exciting (one wire) AD244 Regulator Conversion

DR44G Self Exciting AD244 Regulator Conversion

Question:

Hello, I have a DR44 that I would like to use as a self-exciting alternator with only a power wire attached. I know that with no 2-pin connector hooked up, the regulator will default to a voltage around 13 volts. Do you have a regulator that will work in this alternator to have a higher voltage? I've seen your D200SEL self-exciting 4 pin regulator for AD244 and others. Is this regulator compatible with the DR44 (besides not fitting on the rear plastic cover)? Thanks

Answer:

Yes you can put the D200SEL regulator in the DR44 with slight modification to the alternator. There is a small boss sticking out to much and makes the D200SEL not sit level. If you file or trim this boss off about 3/16" the regulator will set level and the cover will go on like normal.
