I used the original 6V armature.
Are you saying the field coils are not 'clocked' to the armature correctly? I simply swapped the 6v generator...
So a jumper wire from the field terminal to the generator body and a direct power lead from the battery sparking to the armature terminal?
I have converted by 1950 ford generator to 12v by switching out the generator case for a 12v case and field coils.

Ended up drilling a 1/4 inch hole. Tapped it and place a cut off 1/4 bolt with Loctite red sealant.
Great time capsule and great story.
You are doing the right thing and preserving history.
I love your integrity!
I will try the drill/tap/bolt repair, before I consider replacing the head.
Thanks for the information.
Can drilling, tapping etc. be done safely with the head in place?
And what sealer would you use?
