1913-1914 Chalmers Models 17, 18 & 19 Generator

Recommended Posts

I have acquired an early Gray & Davis Type G1 Generator (Dynamo).   After diligently looking up old reference books, I have discovered that the "Type G-1" spec's list 6-1/2 V, 9 Amperes and 1000 RPM.  It took a bit of time, but apparently this generator (dynamo) was only originally fitted to the 1913-1914 Chalmers, Models 17, 18 and 19.  My unit appears complete, but certainly needs cleaning and internal checking with a complete rebuild probably required.  It turns over qjuite easily, but still requires slightly more effort than ideal.  It's quite dirty and cob-webby.  Also, as can be seen in the photos, one of the four mounting feet needs some welding/fabrication.  Since I do not own a Chalmers, I'd like this to go to a Chalmers parts accumulator (aka "hoarder") or better yet, an owner of a Model 17, 18 or 19.  Hopefully it can be of immediate use or kept as a back-up unit.  Offered at USD$250, plus shipping or better yet, stop by my vending space at Hershey (I'll only bring it if somebody wants it right away) at RED FIELD RWG 30-31, nr. Lamp Post #21.
