Are the generator pole pieces the same as the starter , I mixed parts and see there are small difference in length in some
Thank you all for past and present help
I do not have the Ford prints for these parts, but I interchange them all the time between generators and starters with no trouble. The S & G field winding to armature air gap works out to be the same.
There are some differences between years, but are a function of manufacturing process used at the time. .
It all makes sense Ford because would have wanted a minimum of like parts, less tools and many of the parts for the S and G are the same with some only having a few additional manufacturing steps.
