Thanks for the history. So this, being 12v, would be used on cars which had 3 brush generators that had the fields and arm converted to 12v? Was that a popular mod?

Years back my '35 had the...

Re: Name that Block

It's the only pic I have. I'm trying to figure out on the 2nd one what the pieces are that are mounted on either side. And what castings had pipe plugs on the jackets.
