Re: 2301 generator

OK....I have found some literature for the generator that states
Early - Autolite - GDZ-4801T,
Later - Autolite - GGW-6001E
Convt - Autolite - GGU-6001C
So my generator should be the GGW-6001E. Can anybody give me something that I could use to verify this? Thanks again for the help.

If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

I saw something about 12 volts mentioned in my search . Has to be mislabelled. If it was 12 volt, I think by now that I would have blown bulbs and cooked the battery. I'm looking for the springs for the brush arms, hence trying to identify it. I replaced the brushes last fall, and they have worn down to the point that they are the same size as the ones I took out. When it stopped charging the other day, I reached in and flicked the arms, and it started charging but it's somewhat erratic. This is basically what happened last fall. The brushes are only worn about 1/3. Also, how do I get the pulley off. Tried last year to no avail. I'd like to clean between the segments and maybe put a very small chamfer on the leading edge of them as I think the wear seem a little excessive for only being one year old and maybe a little over a 1000 miles.

The car is a Deluxe 8 Touring Sedan with the 288. Hmmm...Nasty previous mechanic struck again. I Guess I'll remove it and take it to an automotive electrical shop to see if they can identify it. As far as numbers on the tag...the name is Crescent Automotive Products, Montreal, Canada, numbers are GJC 7002. Now I just did a quick search before finishing this post and what I am finding some named it as an Autolite, others a Prestolite. More puzzles....yea! Thanks again.

It's always said....A picture is worth a thousand words. The one above is not like mine, so here's mine.

2301 generator

How would one tell which make of generator is on the car? I assumed it would be an Autolite because the distributor is. There is no tag on the generator, other than the rebuilders sticker. They were kind enough to remove it(I'm assuming) so it would likely need to go back to them. I need to determine which one as I need new springs for the brush arms. The two numbers that I have been able to find are Autolite - GGW-6001E and Delco 1102715. The car has overdrive and fog lights, so am I correct in thinking it would likely be a 45 amp generator. Thanks to who post.

1949 23rd series is green. Engine reportedly has been rebuilt, but it's a low milage car and the engine paint appears to be original.

I talked to the guy from Gener-Nator last year. $900.00 for my 49. IIRC it would be enough to supply the extra required by the fan and then some. But in my opinion, pricey

Putting in a shroud around the factory fan to the rad would also help. Requires some fabrication and removal of the rad to install. It forces all of the air that goes through the fan to go through the rad. I plan on doing this over this coming winter and reducing the anti-freeze content of my mix to 50/50.

Main concern would be the rear axle. If the shafts fit, that could be a good thing, as I am having an issue with the rear pass. side. Taper contact is only about 2/3rds and the drum is going past the end of the shaft. Have tried another drum, but the contact area ends up being the first 1/3 of the shaft. This drum was loose when I got the car and figure that the large end of the taper on both shaft and drum are worn. Will have to see the car. From what I've been told it's a bit of a field car, so I suspect the frame may be done. Thanks gentlemen!
