      Two pulleys used on the powerhouse.


      • #4
        I could use one of those powerhouse pulleys, if one is for sale ?
        Model A's and of course the famous AA's

          I'd sell the 2 spoke, I'd prefer to trade for something for an early 28. What's the offer?

          Mine is the style on the left and is badly bent up. I'll check with my generator guy and get back too you.

          pAAt, if you need the smooth style let me know. Likely in the pile of generators I have one. May need to trade for it. Have a small list of equal value items I need. Of course a trade between You and Jim should be your first option. Offering this as a second option. Rod

        Regarding these trivia pic questions, do we ever get a response if the answer is right or wrong? This would help future archive reference IMO and help complete the thread

          Right or wrong would just be my opinon. Don't know if it would be RIGHT. I sarted this just to get people to pull out the standards, and show the details that go into writing, reading and interpreting them. and show some interesting stuff I've run across.

          So far, I think we got them right. There still is a decision needed on the pitman arms (type 4 or 5?)

            Oh ok, I assumed you knew what these items were fit and year wise.. OK that's cool
            I enjoyed looking them up in the JS as every time i open it i learn something so your mission is working at least for me

            Thanks for posting these things

            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...

            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....

            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...

            original 1933 generator cutout "functionality"
            by ClaudeC
            Can an antique 1933 Generator cutout still function? Or is it a better idea to purchase a new manufactured one?

            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...

            Sad repo generator parts
            by SeaSlugs
            Well restoring the early 29 generator (non powerhouse) that has the rear bearing oil hole on the side not the end. Decided to order the new front bearing components kit. Yea that was a mistake.

            Maybe the later generators use these style parts? Only things I can use are the felt and the bearing spacer - rest are completely...
