  1. Besides the 3 bolts holding the generator to the engine front housing, what else holds it on. Does the front cover have to be removed from the engine? I need to replace the brushes and springs in the generator. Is there a nut going through a gear in the timing chain components? Help

  5. Have a question: I moved to Milwaukee for work. Shipped my 1947 Super from TX and it arrived with a dead battery. The truck driver offloaded it and then he jumped it with a 12 volt charger. I wasn't happy about it, but couldn't leave it on the side of the road in the area I'm living until we close on a house. The battery died again as soon as I got it into the garage. Bought a charger, the charger broke down before charging the battery. Bought a new battery, put it in and now the car doesn't seem to fire. Starter sound okay, but no start. Could the 12 volt jump screwed up anything that I should think about replacing? Another thought. I believe the 40s buicks had a safety feature that routed the generator through the ingnition. If the brushes were worn down, the car would not start. Could this be the issue with the dead battery and now the failure to start?

  7. Hello all.. quick question. My '49 Roadmaster only seems to show a (SLIGHT SLIGHT) charge while in "Park". While driving tonight, it seemed to do fine for about 40 minutes (It pretty much stayed in the 0 or neutral position). After that, it went completely to the "discharge" position and wouldn't "pop" back up until I brought it home and Parked it in the garage... then, while in "Park", I had to rev it up and bingo! Ammeter went from "discharge" to "neutral". I know about polarizing the voltage regulator. I just completely cleaned up ALL of my wire connections- they look new now. Generator was brought in early this year, and the guy said it tested out fine. Any ideas??? Oh, and BTW... MERRY CHRISTMAS Buick Lovers!!! Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster - with open portholes!!!
  8. Another quick question: my 1930 Studebaker Commander FD and 2 oiling ports on the generator and one on the starter motor. What is the best type of oil to use on these components (motor oil, 3-in-1, etc.)?

  10. Ok guys.. I know a few of you have been following my antics with my 1949 Roadmaster... well, I noticed today, that when I hooked up my battery to the 'ol car, the voltage regulator got hot, and the generator was getting warm! Now this was happening with the car OFF and the ignition in the OFF position! I have noticed some sparks coming from the negative battery terminal whenever I hook up the battery, so I was looking everything over today and was about to open up the voltage regulator when I noticed it was hot... I remember some of the guys mentioning this in one of my previous posts, so perhaps I might be able to fix this problem by messing around with the points on the regulator?? I'm actually thinking this IS the problem of why my battery drains when the car is off overnight. Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door
  11. I have one. Does anyone know what it goes to? Or what it is worth? I am digging through my Dad's father-in-laws attic and found some motors and generators, mostly antique. Any help would be appreciated. I know he saved them for a reason! Thanks!
  12. Recently acquired 32 light eight. Owen-Dyneto CO-1300(14th series for 36 Packard) currently on car though needs repair-field coil & brushes; found a place to repair. Originally 32 took owen-dyn CL-1005, 9th series. Trying to determine if ok to use CO-1300 instead of original CL-1005. (CO-1300 fits fine) Also, any knowledge of other generators other than CL-1005 that are ok to use on 32 light eight? Thanx
  13. Hi all, I'm cleaning fifty years of gunk off of the generator of my '52 72R. Usually when I clean these components up there is a trace somewhere, a clue, a little scrap of paint or three that indicates the part's original color. So far I've found no clues as to what color the generator housing might have been painted, if any. Was it bare steel, or was some paint applied to them? Anybody know? :confused:
  14. Wanted: Bracket to fit generator for Stewart speedometer pickup. Here are photos of the bracket I need. Ca: mid 1920s.
