  • 1933 original generator and cutout

    Looking for a good photo of original 1933 v8 generator and cutout.
    Did the original cutout have ford script on it?

    original 1933 generator cutout "functionality"

    Can an antique 1933 Generator cutout still function? Or is it a better idea to purchase a new manufactured one?

    Name That Generator
    by gdaquilina
    This is the generator that was on the car when I received it in 1993. It has performed well, and I am trying to determine its origin. It has the oilers at both ends and two wires coming from the grommeted hole where the stud to the cutout is usually found. One of the wires is connected to the cutout, the other is a ground to the one of the cutout screws. The pulley is two piece, riveted together,...

    Model A Generators
    by gdaquilina
    The generator I have on my Town Sedan now has an oil cap on the front and rear plates with bushings on both ends. The output connection is on the rear of the cutout and two wires exit the output connection. Am I correct in assuming that this is maybe an early V-8 generator? If it is, is their any difference in its output from the Model A ones? All internals appear as the parts diagrams show for...

    Generator Output Issue - Resolved
    by 01A
    I wanted to share an experience with the no output issue I had with the generator that has a stock cutout. The ammeter needle was not showing a charge. Referencing some ideas from this forum I tried jumping the cutout while increasing rpm's to rule out a bad cutout, but no improvement. Then tried motoring the generator. The generator motored just fine. What I eventually found was the generator output...

    Poor Quality Cutout Burns Up Powerhouse Generator
    by Tom Wesenberg
    The Model A was made with no voltage regulator for the generator, and if the circuit is broken between the generator and battery the voltage can reach as high as 40 volts.
    I'm pretty sure the poor quality of this repro cutout is what fried the field windings. It totally burned away the wrapping on one coil, then the copper wire got pulled into the armature and field pole shoe, which locked up...

    Generator cutout with diode installed ( brattons part)
    by Fredski
    Designed for 20amps. My. Question is can I adjust generator at full amps and this will act as a regulator not to overcharge the battery. If not is somthing available to work.

    Generator output
    by Chuck Sea/Tac
    I was helping a guy get his A started today. Shorted ignition switch. After it ran the ampmeter showed no charge. Would show discharge with lights on. The output of the generator post was the same as the output side of the cutout. 6.1 v. At idle or revved up. Does this indicate the generator is not putting out. Will the output stud of the generator show an output before the cutout closes? Tia

    Generator Cut-Out Wiring
    by chiefc73
    Good afternoon - I believe I know the answer to this already after scouring the forum but just need clarification, the three wires running to the Generator Cut-Out hook up to the Battery Side Terminal - Correct? Reason why I'm asking is my generator has a Nu-Rex Positive Ground Cut-Out and all the wires are running to the Generator Side Terminal. Not sure why it would be hooked up this way?

    Generator with electronic ignition
    by Jim Baskin III
    Can I run a generator with Pertronics ignition that has a diode cutout ? I know the power to the electronic ignition comes from the battery and the diode cutout keep the voltage even keel,so I don't see a problem but want expert advice.

    Generator Cutout Question
    by Soapy
    The generator on my Tudor is Ford, but not Model A. Instead of a post, there is a green wire. I don't think that it was connected properly, and ran under the cutout, where the metal edge was cutting into the insulation. I changed it around and this is what I ended up with. Other than a lack of originality, is this all correct? (I don't have the lighting wire attached)
