Photo of 1934 intake ( high generator mount and diamond fuel stand hole ) after I cleaned up, do not know of reason why intake was patched. After 79 years I believe several of us have had patches done, cars are no different???

They say 1982 and 84!!!
Today took the generator/fan assembly to Don's and we disassembled and cleaned up all the parts, Don is painting the parts, I had to leave to purchase a new bearing to replace the old bearing that required grease/oil. Not any wear problem yet but was dry, replaced with a sealed type bearing.


Also, started to pick at the intake right below the weld patch with a straight screw driver, opened up a hole about a 1/8" x 1/2" long. The intake alumiun was as thin as an egg shell. Looked at another intake Don had that was weathered and it already had a hole corroded in the same spot as the location on the 34 intake. Took intake to welder friend of mine and he is going to close, will continue to look for a better 34 intake, Bruce

JB weld would have worked & a bit less expensive on the intake repair.

Don and I reassembled the generator today, ran test on the generator to see if it would motor, passed that. Next we hooked up the multi-meter and ran generator to see the voltage, everything worked well and then placed fan on generator. Checked out all the old plugs, all worked well.

Generator Complete

Removed the water pumps from heads, has signs of slinging grease on the back of pulleys. Who has pumps, looked at Drakes and they are only 37 and up, who has early water pumps, they look so simple, very clean inside, turn free with just a little resistance as you would expect, is there a way to test for leaks, do not what to reassemble and have water going every where after 30 years of setting. I did clean up with solvent out of parts washer, brush only, will paint after I find out if they need attention.

Before cleaning

Being that you have them off send them to skip in Fla for rebuilding. You'll be happy you did.
