so before I buy a powerdynamo I am going to try to rewind the original stator with whatever they have at the local store. I need dc........I have a trail tech rectifier and floated the ground and it was working a little but I wasn't really getting a dc reading and it didn't charge my batteries. I am just going to try and get it going again with more magnet wire before I try dc stuff. I will use my own bridge rectifiers next time I guess. I hope whatever is at the store works.
