Your question is ambiguous.
If I assume a particular generator type, ALL Model T's had one; an ac generator and that was the internal magneto to operate the coils.
Of course, that is not what you meant to be asking, or was it?

Re: F,S. 1926 Model T Ford Touring car National winner on t bay Sold

Don is a local friend here In Nicholasville, KY who is a Model T neophyte, but very enthusiastic.
I highly recommended this well pedigreed and very reasonably priced car to him knowing he would not be stuck with a dud.
Now I guess I will have to teach him how to drive it? :)

Re: Another mag problem

If you measure the output of your magneto with a Fun Projects St. Louis Magneto Tester and post the results it would go a long way toward diagnosing your problem.

Re: Magneto problem

I may be wildly wrong, but I cannot believe the Curie temperature of a Model T magneto magnet is anywhere near 176 F.
It has to be much higher than that.

Re: 8 volt Batteries

The generator voltage will only go to the higher rates I mentioned above when the battery is disconnected and the generators goes into its "runaway" unregulated mode. A loose charging circuit wire on the switch or ammeter would case this.

Re: 8 volt Batteries

Adam D. is correct in both instances; the unregulated output of the generator can go as high as 10-12 volts and a "properly rebuilt" Model T starter will have no trouble turning over a Rajo equipped engine. The problem with Voltage is people who do not understand electricity thinks more voltage is b...
