Re: 39 generator

There is a Letter code near the Ford script on the case. My 40 generators have a U and I believe the 39s have a T. Probably early 40s could have a T also. We all know who has the definitive answer...

Re: Plugging holes with "Metal To Metal?"

I hate to be Captain Obvious but why can't you carry the frame to where the end of your 50' cord is? If it is too awkward for you have a friend help. Model A frames are not that heavy.
