  • Identifying Your Generator

    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 have also mix and matched the end plates on the long generators, so you can have a combination of parts.

    All these changes makes it hard for many to know exactly what they have. To help you identify what you have, go to the TECH section, then the GENERATOR thread. I have added information and pictures showing how to install the electronic voltage regulator (EVR) for the two styles of the long generator. I will add information on the 3 and 5 brush powerhouse later. This should help you identify what you have.
