  • 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?

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

    Generator output post location
    by Jeff/Illinois
    All Model A fine point cars that I've observed (post Powerhouse gennies, 1929-1931) have the output post on the generator towards the 'back', away from the front of the car. Seems like I've been noticing more Model A's anymore that have the long Autolite generator with the output post on the front near the radiator, so the cutout relay is mounted 'backwards'.

    I realize that the generator...

    What this to?
    by SeaSlugs
    I have 2 of these cutouts on some model A generators. Both are Ford script and one has a stamped B (not sure on other) I read the JS and they say all model A cutouts had slotted mounting tabs - these 2 do not. So what are they to? Model B's? Sure are heavy....

    Proper charge rate?
    by smittykid
    I'm running a 6 volt generator on a pos. ground system. I was afraid the old cut out was over charging the battery. I replaced the old cut out with a new NUREX semi-conductor cut out. At regular idle the amp meter shows about 5-6 amps of charge. Running down the road- 40mph it shows around 12 amps charge. No lights on. What is the correct charge rate? Maybe the old cut out wasn't bad after...

    Generator Cutout, What's Wrong Here?
    by Tom Wesenberg
    I'm working on a generator that needs to be restored. Mention was made about a bearing noise, but there was no mention of no output, so I assumed it worked OK. The first thing I check was the cutout, and find the input terminal shorted to ground. It looks like a homemade bracket with just a small thin piece of black plastic that looks like a tiny piece off a TV dinner. You can see the bracket is bent...

    Identifying Your Generator
    by Tom Wesenberg
    Over the years generators have been swapped on the Model A's, so now days you can normally have 1 of 4 different styles. First came the 5 brush powerhouse, then the 3 brush powerhouse, then the long generator known as the Autolite style. After Model A production ended and the Model B began, the generator also changed slightly, and now many B style generators can also be found on the Model A. People...
