  • Installed rebuilt generator on wisconsin tf engine

  • I got the generator back from the repair shop today and installed on my home made tractor. This auto-lite generator is a little different because it is gear drive and the distributor is on the end of the unit. On the second try on installing it fired up, but wasn't charging. After polarizing the cut out it started charging. This tractor was built about 25 years ago using a Wisconsin tf engine, 53 cj jeep axles (narrowed), transmission and transfer unit. All this lives in a custom frame. I use to plow snow and tow things around. The plow is lifted via a belt driven pump and controlled with a 2 spool valve. There is a 3point and cylinder on the rear. No I didn't build it, but brought it back to use after getting new parts for the Rockford clutch which was blown when I bought it. Sorry to be long winded, but I wanted to share today's doings.

  • Many of us are curios now so about some pictures!!! The Model T Ford generator ran off the crank and was gear driven...

  • Pictures
    could be a problem. I tried that a couple of years ago without success. Maybe I could text pictures and you could post. Went to fire it up today and nothing cranking. Push button solenoid might be bad. Have to mess with it tomorrow.

  • Update on battery drain. After charging battery for a day and running engine again. The amp gauge goes to discharge when I switch off the engine. A tap on the cutout lets the needle go back to o. So i'm thinking the contacts stick and that causes the drain. Maybe time for a new cut out
