I've got an "AUTO-LITE" electrical booklet dated 1917 that has exploded views of all the parts,as well as a parts list for each type of generator & starter motor for 490 & Model D Chevs if that's of any help to you.

Hey Mike! What are you up too? I can send you pictures if you would like. I'll be home tomorrow, been in China for a few weeks.

Hi Dave!

Very good question on the spark plugs. So Model D uses a AC Titan 7/8 long. I just happen to need some for the Chummy, can you help?

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

As in 7/8 thread, long reach? on the plugs.
Are any numbers visible on the sides of the generator case? Looks like a number on the top.
How does the generator drive? Pulley, Gear?

Mike

Hi Mike,

Yes your correct 7/8 thread, there is a short and a long which is the reach. The model D used the long. There is also a SAE which will work too. And there are some other Titan plugs that look the same, but are for Dodge.

As to the generator, I can get you the numbers. If I remember right there is a gear that drives the generator from the front. I can take a picture of that also.

So Mike what are you working on? I'm working on updating the Model D roster right now, a lot of cars have changed hands in the last few years.

Bruce

Bruce,
I'm not working on anything close to a Model D but I have an unidentified square generator with a distributor drive housing on the back and I would like to get it into the hand of someone who can use it, if I can figure out what it is.
I have a pile of old AC plugs, some NOS, some Titan. I will look through them to see if anything is suitable for your D.
Call me if you want and I will look at plugs while you ask the right questions.

DUH!!! Stupid question on my part. It would have to be a gear or sprocket since the distributor drive is on the rear.

I'll do one better, I'll post some pictures of the plugs later today. Also get the number off the generator. I'll try calling later or tomorrow.
