Mike, If replacing the DVR-2 and battery, might be a good time to move to 12V. Yes?
Any thoughts / considerations?
Thanks Mike, I checked the connector plug and the battery connections, all good. Assume earth connected.
Hmmm yes perhaps a new battery would be clever.
did you do anything about that Li battery Steve? not good on our  bsas.
if you have a wet or agm battery and you are sure you have the DVR2 connected well (ie check the ground, the volts at the input and output terminals) then I'd say that you did just test the DVR2. and found it wanting.
but i would double check the connections to it first.

Welcome Roy

Great history and wonderful project

Getting back to trying to solve that flat battery mystery ...........
In the weekend I tested the Dyno output (by bridging the D & F plugs and earthing to the Dyno case) and got a healthy 18V + at 3,000rpm ... so I take the dyno output to be good.
But I measured only 6.2V at the 6V battery, both at rest and while charging / motor running. The Ampmeter showed no noticeable charging (it does show discharge with lights on, so it is working).
Therefore I think, is my DVR-2 not working? How do I check this?
Your thoughts please ......................
Thanks Steve

Fantastic project. Will you be able to do much of the work yourself?

Hi,my father bought an A10 Golden Flash brand new in 1951 that was used until mid 1960's when life got in the way and it was parked up in his garage.Many attempts over the years to get him to resurrect it failed.Sadly he died Dec 2017 aged 92.So the task of resurrecting it will begin.It's surprisingly rust free, most of the chrome has fallen off.But no rust in tanks or engine.I'm hoping to use it as it is, strip it down and replace only necessary parts.We found some pictures of him on it,and took one as we found it.Hope to update as i go and use the very useful knowledge on here to help.
