  1. Thanks Jack but I already purchased an NOS regulator $$$$$$ so I want the generator to match. It's for a 1947 Dodge WC. I figure with everyone building street rods, or converting to 12 volts, the original parts should be available. I am a rare individual as I prefer 6volts. Bill
  2. Thanks for looking. I need an Auto-lite GEB-4801A. The search continues......
  3. Can you give me the Auto-lite numbers off the generator please? Thanks! Bill
  4. Just trying to be a "Purist" Ray! It would be time period correct. The setup I'm looking at has some parts missing and I don't know if I have the expertise to fabricate the missing parts. This setup was way ahead of it's time! (And it's used today) I joined the AACA so I could be pure...... Bill
  5. As a lover of old speed equipment there is always this option for the DB 4 cylinder guys! I have a chance to purchase one of these. Very cool! https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0mzgiie64kzqlyh/AABezOqMEKp2dF_bKQmntABqa?dl=0
  6. From what I remember you had 2 coupes? Glad to see you back! I have NEVER cried about my cars! (I kept all of them........)
  7. Matthew, These will answer some of your questions. It also should settle the engine color debate.
  8. Maybe a small "C" channel (1" wide x 1/4" tall) spot welded to one side of the hood underneath down the whole length to act like a rain gutter. Food for thought......
  9. Just to be clear DB26 I was referring to the cap over the gauge. It's very fragile.
  10. Yes. BE CAREFUL!!!! Use extreme care when trying to break it loose or it will bend out of shape. In old testament proportions there will be lots of broken glass and fire and brine stone! Use heat, PB Blaster, WD-40, and some Jim Beam might break it loose. (Jim Beam after it's broke loose) Let us know! Bill
  11. Go Here: It might explain some things....... Bill
  12. What nearchoclatetown is referring two is that some original valves had a cast iron head with a steel rod screwed into it.
