Update:

Replaced brushes and springs.
Shined the rings.
That brought my stationary ohm reading into tolerance on the 9/10 pins at 25 ohms.

Problem is during spinning the ohms flucuate from 0.00 to OL at those same pins.
I think I have a short in the rotor.


Hope not, expensive fix. You CAN buy a re-wound Onan Armature for a lot less than new. Doug

Not definitive. Use 12 volts. A battery, a 0 ohm resistance will induce a substantial spark. No substantial spark no short. Use positive on the slip ring furthest outboard. This induces inherent magnetism.

Opens are common direct shorts are rare. Check 20 M resistance slip ring to generator chassis.
