Default Pincor Electric Power Plant

I have an old generator that stopped making power. It is a Lister ST2 with a Pincor Electric Power Plant Model #LD70SDV Serial #2594. I am looking for a wiring diagram or manual for the Pincor. I also read that the magnet field might need to be energized. Maybe someone might be able to give me an ideal how to energize the field. I know you need to use a battery.

Thanks for help wit this.

In the past I have rescued several generators that quit making power, including a 6500W Pincor. In every instance the problem was with the brushes. If you have not done so I recommend that you clean the commutator bars and slip rings THOROUGHLY then make sure the brushes are free in their holders and that all connections are good. Appearances can be deceiving here, I recently worked on one that I would have sworn the brushes were not the problem, but a bit of cleaning and the genset was happily making sparks again.

I'm not saying this is definitely your problem but if that machine were mine it is the first thing I would be looking at. Sorry, I've never reflashed one of these so I can't help you with that.

I had a generator loosing power. It turned out that the carbon brushes were getting glazed. (oil-dust?) I cleaned them with fine emery. Then it worked good again. Ron
