Professionally Rebuilt generators. Fits 1919-1927 cars. 90 day warranty

Post by AdminJeff » Sat Jan 04, 2020 8:25 am

I finished 2 more Professionally Rebuilt Ford Model T generators. Fits 1919-1927 cars including TT.

$235 (with $15 core credit) , shipping INCLUDED anywhere in the USA.90 day, unconditional warranty ALSO included.
$250, no core. I'll even pay for the shipping to send your core back.

PROCESS USED ON ALL REBUILT GENERATORS:
Completely Disassemble & clean
Remove all old wires and disintegrated wrapping on field coils and carefully clean them.
Separate the individual coils. Rewrap each field coil with superior Scotch brand Glass Cloth Electrical tape.
Power up and Check each coil w/ Magnometer for no shorts, maximum field strength AND polarity
Replace terminal post insulator, washer & post wire, and polish terminal post nuts and bolt or replace as needed.
Reassemble/solder field coils with new wires, new insulators and new terminals.
Clean and rebuild brush holder plate. Replace with new insulators on 3rd brush.
Tap all holes in brush plate with 10-32 thread-chasing tap. Replace screws and lock washers (as necessary).
Replace brush holder screws with new BRASS screws and new zinc coated split washers.
Install new brushes in brush plate.
Pre-Test Armature on growler and check on lathe for straightness on both front and rear shafts.
Clean armature and take off ~10 thou on commutator surface or as needed for perfect brush contact on South Bend Lathe.
Mica undercut commutator ~20 thou.
Commutator final polished with 2000 polishing paper.
Polish & Fit front and back shafts for new sealed bearings.
Re-Test Armature on growler for shorts after cleanup.
Fit armature into field coils for final clearance as needed.
Check end play of assembled unit.

NOTE: ALL 10-32 and 6-32 screws and split washers in all locations replaced with zinc coated decorative flat-head screws just like were on the unit when new. Brush Terminal screws replaced w/ brass screws for better conductivity.

RUN-IN TESTING & ADJUSTMENT
Set brush holder plate for neutral/slight positive rotation with +6V.
Set charge rate to 7A. **see note below
Bench test/run in on generator test bench for 30 min at 1500 rpm.
Paint with POR15 gloss black. This paint is almost indestructible and resists everything. Can be painted over.

Contact me if you want a good generator drive gear pre-installed for you with a new pin) for an additional $10 (while I have them)

Solidly packed in bubble wrap and ship!

**NOTE: Adjustments assume the original Ford Cut-out is used. Final fine-adjustment of 3rd brush (charge rate) may be necessary once you get it depending on your car and accessories and is very easy to do. 5A to 7A seems to work for most applications, esp for touring when the car is driven longer distances. If you only drive short distances, 10A might be better in that case to keep the battery fully charged and this is easily changed by moving the 3rd brush once installed in the car. Fun Projects Voltage regulators require different charge rates but can be easily set when this generator is installed in the car using the instructions that come with the regulator. These voltage regulators are very worthwhile upgrades.

The Rear Oiler is not used as these generators use permanently sealed bearings.

NO CORE RETURN REQUIRED, but I will pay you $15 (taken off the price of the gen). And I'll pay for the return shipping in the same box I send you.

These come with a 90 day unconditional warranty included (which starts when you get it).
