trini Posted May 16, 2015 Share Posted May 16, 2015 I am trying to repair a chain driven North East generator from a 1928 Dodge Brothers Senior. I have 2 and hoping to use the good parts to make a good one. But the parts I need are bad in both. What I discovered is the armatures burnt out. It is a 4 pole ,3 brush type and well made except one weak point. The flat piece of brass at the output end of the field coil is bolted onto the frame by way of an insulated washer. On both generator I found evidence of repair on this particular part. The original washer was missing for whatever reason and replaced with some hotchpotch pieces of fiberboard improperly placed causing the output brush to short out causing the armature to toast. It is a flat fiber washer about 5/16 diameter and a 3/16 hole and a fiber tube to accommodate a #10 screw and another fiber washer below to insulate the output sheet metal soldered at the end of the field coil. I cannot find one to buy and it is too miniscule to have a machinist to make one. I am still thinking how to do this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
