About 3 years ago, Joe rebuilt my 300-F generator, and recalibrated my 5 generator regulators, none of which were correct, even new in the box. Now I'm going to have him rebuild my 300-F's old heater motor. I replaced it this past winter with the truck-sourced motor recommended on our website, which works, but is noisier than the original Chrysler motor.
Pictured below is the rebuild-restoration of a 300F generator. Other rebuilders declared the unit un-repairable but Joe worked his magic and it is working again. If you want Joe to rebuild your generator, here is his contact information:
Field Housing before disassembly. Note the "shorted" fields.
Field Housing after disassembly and glass beading and before the
interior surfaces were "clearcoat" sealed to prevent future rusting
which could lead to premature failure of the field coils.
Completed Field Housing Assembly.
Armature as removed from generator. Note several
"shorts" were present between the commutator segments.
Close up of the commutator. Twenty-nine insulation slots
had to be re-undercut to clear the "shorts."
Reconditioned armature with pole shoes & new field coils.
Underside of pole shoes had to be "relieved" via die grinding
to accommodate the new coils which were slightly thicker in size.
Small parts after cleaning.
End plate castings after glass beading.
