I am thinking about installing a 6 volt alternator in my 1933 Chevy Master. I pulled apart my generator and cleaned it up. It does work now. But I couldn't get all of the rest out of it, and the bearings are in bad shape. The insulation on the internal wires is all worn off. I'm afraid it isn't going to last very long. I know the judges won't like the alternator, but I want to be able to drive this and have it reliable. Has anyone here had any experience with the company that makes these alternator's? This link "6 Volt Alternators" that is underlined in blue shows the company and alternator information.
I have been driving my 32 with a generator for over 16 years and 12000 miles with no problems. Most that install an alternator do so for increased amp output necessary for added electrical items, mainly lighting. With the use of LED lighting the added amps are not usually necessary.
