I've been looking for my Video clip of bench testing with a 1KW electric drill.


I welded up a frame to hold the alternator, then wired up the Alternator bulb, and 4 Headlight bulbs as a load.

It's hard work holding the drill steady.

i have a rig here all setup to hold and run the alternator with a motor but i dont know the wiring for it.

i know the thick wire gos straight to the battery but whats the circuit for the smaller wire/dash bulb?

is it alternator > dash bulb > dash bulb > +ve battery?
