Starter/Generator on my Simplicity needs the commutator turned ( copper bars are pitted ) and I didn't want the unit down while it was being worked on. I have another that KillerAC had given me for parts because someone had dropped it and broken one of the mounts off. After munch though I decided to make a new mount (didn't want to search all over for a replacement end cap) . So with welder, grinder, drill & etc. I fabricated a mount, it looks crude BUT works great.DSC02888.JPG DSC02890.JPG DSC02891.JPG

So long as it does the job.

 

Do you think you'll put the other one back on or as long as it works just move on to something else?

Nice fix for a temporary repair! You can always look around for a good part to fix it!

Thinking outside the box.
Great work. As my grandpa always said, That dog'll hunt.

My intentions are to reinstall the original, then this becomes a backup S/G

Thanks

Maybe someone has a good end for this one that you can fix it permanently with.

The parts you want are the same as in some of the old generators from  50s and early 60s GM vehicles. I used a generator from a 1958 Chevy 235ci to fix an S/G about 30 years ago. At that time I had several 50s and 60s vehicles in the yard. Good Luck, Rick

    In many larger town there are shops that specialize in starters, generators, alternators, and regulators. I went into the one in Spokane Washington and ask about a starter for my Minneapolis Molene.  The old guy got in his books for a few minutes and told me what three starters I needed to find so I would have the parts that were NLA so he could build me a starter. You just have to find the right man. Nice mount by the way    Don
