Nissan Generator issues
Ok boys and girls, I am going to toss this out there and see what happens. I recently picked up a Nissan GL600 generator. The prior owner obtained it new in the mid 80's. Apparently, this generator was some type of promotional unit when buying a new vehicle. He used this generator for years with no issues. The last few years, it has set in the garage and done nothing. The generator seems to run fine, although the prior owner seems to think it was running a little faster that what it was supposed to. The output on both the 110 VAC and 12 VDC is too hot. ( about 157VAC and 18VDC respectively ) The quirky little Hertz meter is saying that the unit is putting out between 50 and 60 hertz. There seems to be no trace of a Service manual for this generator on the web that isn't a broken link or a scam to get your CC info. I did score a Parts manual for it on eBay today. Anyway, is anyone familiar with this little gem? I am going to use it to charge a small solar battery array when the sun isn't doing the job. Any info on getting the voltages back down to standard operating levels would be appreciated. Thanks in advance....
