Sometimes you just need to put a few modern things on the old hotrod. I like to keep everything as traditional as I can but when a generator can’t keep up with brighter headlight bulbs, small fuel pump, electronic ignition and a couple of gauges it gets tiring hooking up the trickle charger every night you take your ride out. Not sure if anyone has done or tried this yet but here’s my take on the Flathead Powergen. I already had an early 60s 12v Ford generator from Napa on the car. I think it’s about 25amps running full out. Bolted my front bracket mount to it and bored the fan generator pulley to fit. Now we’re at this point and spent the coin for the Powergen. Looking at it, it was ok in my eyes but needed some details to make it look not so powergen’y. Started by drilling two holes for dummy studs as a Field and Ground. The rear cover got the brand name shaved off also. I had the offy pulley but when I set it up it just looked stupid with the fan behind it. For giggles I popped my original fan mount pulley off the generator to see if it fit. Luckily the shafts are the same size and I put a few spacers behind it and tightened the nut. I kept my external regulator on my firewall but just gutted it and put a thick wire inside bridging ARM and BAT terminals. Now I know the late 30s pulley is a bit larger than the original that came on the Powergen but I think it will be plenty to keep the battery charged up cruising at night. To the untrained eye and folks walking by at a show or where ever, you’d think it’s just another generator.
