Re: direct replacement 6 Volt rectifier for Monza

I fetched my generator inside and had another look at it. The rotor is the same as the one in the eBay ad, with 4 magnets. The stator is similar, but mine has the 2 coils wired a bit differently, with a couple of wires bridging across between the 2 coils at the opposite end to the wires going out to...

Re: direct replacement 6 Volt rectifier for Monza

The bike was in bits when I got it, but the previous owner bought it complete (albeit a non-runner) and took it apart. Here's the stator: DSCF5241small.jpg and the regulator/rectifier (with the cover and rectifier removed): DSCF5219small.jpg I did the tests described elsewhere on this forum and conc...

Re: direct replacement 6 Volt rectifier for Monza

Maybe mine isn't the 60W version, it only has 2 coils I think. Will try and find a photo later in the week, and remind myself what resistance I measured.

Re: direct replacement 6 Volt rectifier for Monza

I've got the same reg/rec with my 175, but the diodes conduct in both directions so I'll probably replace it with a modern alternative.
Anyone know the stator coil resistance? I believe I have the 60W alternator.

Re: New to the forum and vintage Ducatis

I run Dellorto VHB carbs on my 2 Guzzis and find them pretty easy to get on with. The little 175 came with an MB22 but it's beyond saving so will be replaced by a PHBL24. These can be bought new for sensible money, or at least they can here in UK.

Re: New to the forum and vintage Ducatis

My 175 has some old Tomaselli Cross bars on, which measure up as 7/8". Held to the top yoke by some little U-bolts, so I don't think the 0.2mm would matter there. I can see your point about the throttle tube though.

Re: New 350 owner/help ID a 66

You can buy the coil spring conversion on eBay. I got one for my 175, for when I get round to the bottom end. Needs an extra hole drilling/tapping into the case.

Re: 175TS in UK

Thanks Hans. I have some sealant I normally use, so that can go on. From my experience with Guzzis, I'll just smear some clean oil on the rocker cover and bevel cover gaskets, as they don't involve so much work to rectify if they leak.

Re: 175TS in UK

I'm still hunting the world for a con-rod kit. The commonly available ones seem to be the MECEUR ones (with the eagle logo) but I've been warned off these as being generally inferior quality. Still got a couple of possibilities I'm following up (Tony Brancato, Alpha Bearings) but any other suggestio...

Re: Location Location!

I'm in Stafford, working on a basket case 175. Until the last Stafford show I'd not seen a complete bike in the flesh, and still have not seen one running. No target set for completion. I seem to get on with a bit quite well and then get stuck looking for bits or lack of time. Hopefully will get at ...
