Default Shane Fedeli- what time delay on your genny?

Shane, you posted you installed a time delay on your new generator to cure the hard to keep running long enough for the generator to kick in problem. I have the same problem with my new genny head. What delay did you use and where did you install it? Thanks!

TOM

Tom does yours seem like you hold the starter in to long before it makes power?

Steve, that is correct. The problem is the newer brush-less genny head doesn't make power as fast as the old head did. So, the control thinks the genny isn't making power and shuts down. Shane put a time delay to hold the fuel pump on longer to solve this problem (I think). I need to know what he used and where he put it! LOL!

The time delay would certainly help. Thanks

A 10 second delay holds in the fuel solenoid and then the genny takes over.

I used a Hella 996152131 time delay relay. It goes on the pull in wire for the fuel solenoid to hold it in until the control senses ac voltage and powers the hold in wire.

OK, just need to figure out how to wire it in, trigger, etc. Then I can make a drawing for others to follow.

Gardner, You need a ground and an always hot to the relay. I used the existing injection pump wire as the trigger. Obviously, The LOAD terminal on the relay then goes to the injection pump.

Ok, so you use the new delay-off relay to feed the fuel solenoid and trigger it with the original fuel solenoid feed. when the original drops for a few seconds the delay relay maintains the power and never times out because the trigger comes back up when the AC output comes up.
