Replaced my ARS-4 Balmar voltage regulator, want it?

Postby Ereiss » Sat Aug 19, 2017 4:14 pm

I replaced my old ARS-4 with a more modern unit. If you would like it I would be happy to send it to you for the cost of the postage. I hate throwing working things away. You will probably need the wiring harness (but not necessarily), but it isn't expensive.

Let me know if you can use it.

What did you replace it with?

P.S. If no one else wants it, I would be glad to take it as a spare as mine had the top blown off with the lightning strike and I'll be replacing it.

I replaced it with the Balmar 614 which reads the voltage at the battery and adjusts the output to ensure I'm getting the 14.3 that I need for my agm batteries. Also much easier to program with readout vs idiot lights. I also now have battery temp sensing in addition to the alternator temp that I always had.

Want to give me an address to which I can send the faithful old unit?

Ed,

I was traveling all of last week & missed your replies. We went to St. Louis to watch the eclipse and then headed to Memphis & Nashville. I've had my fill of BBQ and country music! Anyhow, I sent you an e-mail regarding this.

Much appreciate it.
