Default Generator Cutout B-10505

I'm in the shake down period in the restoration of my 1938 Tonner. I found that I need to replace the generator cutout. It's a 3 brush, 6-volt generator. The Green Book tells me that the number of the cutout is B-10505. I'm looking for NOS, not a new style solid state unit. Any ideas where I could look? I've tried the Internet the usual suppliers. Pretty much what I've been finding is foreign made, and that's not what I'm looking for.

There will come a time when the original ones become unobtanium. A decent original could be rebuilt but I don't know of anyone that advertises repairs without looking into it. If a man made it then a man with the right materials, tools, & skill set can repair it. They are basically just a holding coil that is activated by the residual magnetism in the generator pole shoes.

Check with Third Gen Auto, Mike Driskell. He would have an original round Ford one. Regards, Kevin.

if you plan to actually use the truck, a new one that is a regulator, not a cut out, from fun projects is the way to go. made in usa, even have ford script and look identical
