Wanted Generator '53 170D
« on: June 18, 2014, 11:09:33 AM »
I am forwarding an email I received from Bob Burchett. Maybe someone in the group can help.

Hello all; my 53 170D is 12 volts and the generator shop says the armature & one field coil are gone; they can’t find parts, a core to rebuild or a good one either after weeks of hunting…do any of you know a source for one? Diesels were 12 volts & gas was 6 if you were wondering about the age…so yes; it is 12.
 
If you don’t have one then please forward/ post etc. as you have available to see what is out there in the garage hiding under the bench!
Thanks.

We do electrical rebuilds in house and have access to armature and field rewinding services. We also have used parts for some units, but I'm not sure about what parts interchange with this generator.

Thanks for everyone's assistance on the generator issue.  I spoke with Bob this morning and he was fortunate to find the exact generator on eBay for a very reasonable price.

Hello everyone,
The person (Bob Burchett) requesting this generator is the same man that has the 170 DIESEL emblems available!  Please contact him if you would like one!
