6v generator

Post by zabo on Thu Jul 30, 2009 10:01 am

So i started hearing a high pitched whining from my engine- pulled the fan belt to check the generator and there was a good bit of play in the shaft that connects to the fan.

Does anybody know of a local shop tht can refurbish these or replace the bearings? Or have an idea on how much tht would cost.

Looking online and the cheapest i see is $109.00-not tht bad but im low on funds now and need a new 28 pict carb as well. Neutral

I got a Worldwide brand generator from Advanced and I have had no issues. Come with a two year warranty so worst case, you can replace it every two. They also sell the bearings. The gen is 55 bucks.

Fleet Auto Electric Inc

Atlanta, GA 30349-6426
(404) 766-6112?

These guys were going to rebuild the alt. for my Caddy, but it was as cheap to get a new one...seem to be good guys and is the kind of place where they've been there since the Model-T...I'd give them a call for parts or rebuilding it.

I have another source I can call tomorrow if you have no luck. PM me.

Man, I'm sorry, they are 30pict-1. You probably have no use for them.
