Removing the generator/starter 1918 DB


Recommended Posts

No, just the end cap on gear case to expose the starter chain.  Then hand crank engine until the master link is accessible.  Be sure and secure the ends of the chain once you remove the master link.  I removed mine recently and it went pretty easy following the procedure HBergh attached.

I've attached a Generator Removal procedure file that was submitted by another Dodge owner.  I hope this helps.

I know I'm late to the conversation, but does anyone have a link to this PDF. This link says it has been removed. Also, how do I get the front chain case cover off? I have all the bolts out but it's still connected somewhere, lol.  Thanks for the help!

I hope you have the engine supported if you are removing the front chain case cover. 🫣

This cover is the support for the front engine mount.


the tube end fits in the front cover.






the ball fits in the front chassis rail.



If you have undone all the bolts your engine is only held by the rear bolts holding the block to the rear mount and gearbox.
