Generator/Distributor Identity Sought

Recommended Posts

Newly Acquired 1917 Maxwell 1Ton truck owner seeking help sent me this photo and I don't think the unit on the right side of his motor came from the Maxwell factory but was retrofitted by some mechanic later. Does anybody recognize what this came off and who made it?

Thanks for looking,

Howard Dennis

My first step would be to very thoroughly clean and inspect the entire outside of the unit. There is bound to be some sort of I.D. or manufacturer stamping on it somewhere. It might be a good idea to carefully remove the unit for closer examination , but it can also be done in place.

Once you have a general Idea of what it is you can try to pin down an exact I.D.
