  • I just received my EVR from Fun Projects

    In reading the instructions it mentions adjusting the 3rd brush. The instructions also mention loosening and tightening the 3rd brush nut. I just rotated the 3rd brush without loosening anything and obviously did not retighten anything either. What am I missing here? I don't want to destroy a new $64 EVR or start a fire.( 6volt + ground)

    The powerhouse has a screw that needs to be loosened and tightened when adjusting the third brush, but the Autolite (long) generator has spring clips that hold tension and don't get loosened or tightened.

      I'm pretty sure I have the Autolite generator. That would answer my question. Thank you, sir!

        Generator Question?
        by Afordman31
        My brother came over today and asked me to show him how to move the third brush to set the charging rate. I tried to move the brush and it wouldn't move. I looked at one of my spare generators and it moved like I thought it should. I then found a screw on the end plate that had to be loosened then the brush would move. Is this a early generator or maybe not Model A?

        Generator Brushes and Adjustment and How It Works.

        I'm asked quite often about brush adjustment and how they work, so hopefully these pictures will help.
        The first picture is a cutaway taken at the Model A museum at Gilmore Auto Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan. The second picture shows the 3 brushes. This happens to be the style...

        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...

        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...

        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,...

        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....

        What a friend!

        I just received a package from a "friend" in Minnesota. Thought it was a little heavy. Went to open it and this is what I found. Expandable foam can be a b**ch.
