Yes Dave, the center casing is just slightly larger in diameter as compared to original. Other than that, it looks identical to the original generator, including a non operative cutout mounted on top.

If you want a 6 volt alternator to charge at idle you need a
24 volt stator and you can use the large stock Ford pulley. I
used an adjustable voltage regulator with a small hole in the
rear cover plate so I can set the voltage at idle. I made 7 of
them for my cars and never had any problems. Once you had
an alternator you wouldn't want to go back to a gen. G.M.

I have one from Powermaster on my 34 pickup and it works fine. It is a bit bigger in Diamater and I had to make the pulley fit the shaft in order to use the original one. I believe they now have fan pullies available. take the cutout apart and solder the points closed so the juice goes straight thru.

It looks like the original, because it is the original except for the center case. There are several photos on their web page (post #2 has a link). I can post a photo of one setting on an engine tomorrow.

It would look exactly like the original generator used in production on whatever year vehicle you are interested in, because the alternator is installed inside the original generator housing, except for the center casing which machined from aluminum, and is just slightly larger in diameteI as compared to original.

......and I could post pictures of my original generators tomorrow that would look identical to a Whitney alternator conversation :) :D

Here are some photos of a Whitney alternator I current have setting on an engine. It is a late 40s Generator conversion. Whitney will build them like you want them, I wanted the original three wire style. Others have commented on the case being slightly larger in diameter, don't believe that is the case in the ones I have dealt with. Not sure how clear it is in the photos, but the case is slightly smaller in diameter than the original ends. BUT, I have not measured the two side by side.
