  • Dynostart wiring

    Hello Talboteers,
    Enquiring if any of you experienced gearheads could offer some guidance? I'm up in Ayrshire Scotland replacing wiring on two separate Talbots, a 90 race replica chassis and a convertible 1932. I'm pretty decent at wiring but am still learning about Talbots as I go. These larger 24v dynostarts have two wire connections, the "field" smaller connection and the larger "starting" connection. I am using a Lucas basic voltage regulator instead of the original "cut out" switch - here's my question:

    Does the larger starter wire also provide the charging output back to the battery? So that large connection (circuit 5) in addition to being connected to the 24v converter, would also be a circuit to the dyno output connection on the voltage regulator, while the smaller (circuit 7) is the "field" circuit which would go to the "F" on the voltage reg? This is my best impression after reading several pages of dynostart info and studying the various years wiring diagrams from the Talbot site and manual.

    If so, if the dynostart is receiving 24v and there's a circuit back to the voltage regulator from the 24v connection, would that be a hazard to the voltage regulator, sending 24v up the pipe to the black box?

    Thank you so much for reading, any tips you could provide would be welcome. I'm getting there, slowly!

    Regards,

    PS. I really enjoyed the latest issue of the magazine, with the profile of my new friend John Dodd and the double page spread of the famous race painting!

    We are in the middle of working this out with Ian Potts and John Dodd, and will report with a solution as soon as possible.

      Hi Andrew. If you want I can send you the wiring instructions for the 24v solenoid the STD sells. I would need to email it to you as its too big a file for here. Best wishes Guy
