Removing Generator End Mounting Screws

Removing Generator

1. Disconnect wires from generator "switch" and "relay" terminals.

2. Remove the two long screws, through timing gear case cover, that secure end of generator against gear case (see Illus. 81).

3. Remove nut, lock washer and convex washer from end of strap that clamps generator in its cradle on crankcase (see Illus. 82).

4. Side Valve Engine: Lift strap high enough to permit raising generator so oil centrifuge (on end of generator gear or on armature shaft) will clear adjacent gear and allow generator to be removed from engine.

O.H.V. Engine: Generator has no oil centrifuge and can be pulled straight out.

5. Be sure to observe and count number of paper shims between generator and cradle. Lay these shims aside to be used again when generator is re-installed. Also note location of hole in shims for oil drain. These shims were required in original assembly to adjust driving qears for proper mesh and, if left out, gears are still likely to mesh too deeply and howl, even though they have seen considerable service.

Note: In 1945, diameter of standard generator drive gear on O.H.V. Models only was increased. The larger diameter gear can be identified by measuring its outside diameter. Outside diameter of larger gear is 1.022", however, if edges of gear teeth are slightly burred, outside diameter of gear sion given. Diameter of smaller gear used previously was 1.000".

6. Unless a new generator gasket is available, to be used when generator is installed, be careful not to damage the old one.
