In Reply to: Generator Bushing Removal posted by Owen H on June 23, 2018 at 21:05:59:
Is this the 9N/2N 1-wire/3-brush unit or the 8N 3-wire/3-brush unit? One option is to take the generator to your trusty local starter/alternator shop guy and let him do it. He has the right tools plus the know-how on what to do so nothing gets mucked up. You may also want it rebuilt of its been a long time -worn brushes, field coils, and armature may need servicing. You'll have the generator already removed and will need to be disassembled to get to the bushing so why not a 100% inspection at least? If the genny gets a motoring test, if not performed with the 6-V/POS GRN source as it will be wired as, the unit may need to be polarized upon re-installment. Just curious as to how you determined the bushing needs replacing? Are you already rebuilding the generator yourself and have gotten that far? With any generator it is crucial to have a belt tensioning device in use. The 9N-10000-C and the 2N-10000 generators used a different tensioning device than the 8N generators.
