Re: 6V generator

Went out to take the car out for good long drive to see if the brushes would seat. Was greeted with the howl again! I don’t trust this generator anymore and am not ready to risk it seizing on the...

Re: 6V generator

Thanks Kevin. This rebuilt generator was advertised as fitting 33,34,35,36 and I think 37. I spoke to the seller yesterday about the noise. He thinks it may be the fan belt slipping because of the...

Re: 6V generator

Started my car this morning to take it out for a test of the generator. It started easily but as soon as I massaged the accelerator to keep it running, I heard a loud noise. As I raise the RPMs,...

Re: 6V generator

I don’t want to send this generator back if there is a chance that it’s just a matter of running it for a while. Tomorrow I’ll install it and run it for a bit.

6V generator

I just bought a “rebuilt “ 6V generator from a fellow on EBay. It looks real good but it has a loud squeal when turned by hand. Should I send this generator back?

Re: Napa ech fa5

So Jim, is the NAPA IH 200 a .36 mfd condenser? If not is there one that you would recommend that will still maintain the original look?
