    I’ve never fooled with the rheostat. Previous owner may have. I reversed the wires and now it’s like 127 volts ac on 10 and 90ish on 1.

    It sounds like the rheostat is wired backwards. You should see about 90 VAC at the 120v recept with the fine control at 1 and about 125 VAC with the rheostat set at 10. Either way, the frequency at run speed should be about 62 hz and about 43 Hz at idle.

    Has someone fooled with the rheostat? Have you welded with it to see if the heat increases when you turn the rheostat?

    OK, update!!! It was on 10 when I checked it yesterday. I just checked it again to make sure, dialed to 10 it reads 90-95 volts. For giggles I dialed the fine amp voltage back and the voltage began to increase. When I got to 1, it reads 127 VAC. !!??

    Good call on the fine control on 10 . Put it there and set the hz.

    I think so as well. I believe it needs to set at max setting to get full auxiliary output from the recepticles.

    I set the low side to 43 and the high idle to 62.5. I do not have an RPM gauge.

    What did you set the hz at ? Do you know what rpm you’re running at ?
    You may need to clean the slip rings.

    Bobcat 225 Adjusting Idle/Hz/RPM and Voltage

    Bobcat 225. I found here in the forum how to adjust low and high idle using a Hz meter. I did that and when I check AC voltage at the receptacle, I am only getting 90vac. Do I adjust the RPM higher or look for a problem somewhere else?
