generator rebuild

Thu Oct 20, 2005 6:21 pm

I have seen tutorials on rebuilding carbs, magnetos, fuel shut off's and differnent things here, but has anyone done a 6v generator rebuild?

I have done a search and haven't found anything. If there is one here I would like to see it.

Thanks for any help.

WJ, That's a huge site. This is page that discusses testing generator field coils, armatures, etc. Larry

Generator, Rudi, generator! WJ wants generator rebuild, not governor.

Don't sweat it, Rudi, because it's usually me muddled in confusion!

Since most of the generators are Delco Remy's, I found this site helpful and fun.
