Is anyone going to Hershey that can check out a generator, i.e. test equipment etc?
We have one that was rebuilt, but still not charging as far as we can tell. Would like to see one explained as I would like better to understand how it should be done, and then would be able to fix in the future
I would look for Brent Mize the Coil Doctor.

Great guy and can figure out your generator.
I won't have generator test equipment at Hershey, but, I would be happy to discuss some generator issues with you at our spot. Its too much to bring test equipment, batteries, etc to Hershey. Additionally Hershey is no place to properly test and analyze the problem properly. I really need to have it in the shop to do the proper tests and setup. I will be glad to take it home, test and advise you what it needs, if anything and return if you pay postage. If it needs anything rebuilt, I will advise you before doing any repairs so that you get a fair honest idea of what it takes to make it work properly. I really don't like patching up someone else's work, but if you need help, I will be glad to look it over. But, I will also be very honest if I don't like what the previous rebuilder did. The generator can be a rock solid unit if it is restored back to the way it was originally designed and built. Ninety plus years of patch ups make it less than it can be. Please stop by our spot at gbh4-5 if you want to discuss your generator.

PS, Ron Patterson trained me and we are friends.
We talk frequently about coils , starters and generators. He is a wealth of knowledge and he has freely shared that with me.
And, thank you Larry for your kind words!
