I have a 1962 W-3 Case Backhoe, 4 cyl. gas. The generator quit working so I took it to a generator repair shop. They told me it would be VERY expensive to fix and suggested I replace it with an alternator. Can anyone tell me how to wire it and what type of alternator to get? Someone suggested one form a 1980's Chevy pickup with only 1 terminal, but was only guessing. Also would my AMP. guage still work or do I need to change that or rewire it? My system is 12 volt, positive ground.

should be a pieace of cake,Guy. just make up some brackets to mount the one wire altenator. then run the wire to your battery pos. terminal. i have all my case tractors converted over to this system, has saved a lot of headaches over the years. if your local stater repair shop is any good at all they can help you out with a alternator and questions. if you want to build your alternator there is lots of info on the subject on line. good luck.

There is now a growing market for "As found" machines. Which as machines get rarer, has found the birth of a new industry....one of the "procurement agent". These agents appropriate as much old machinery as possible then inflate prices at auctions. So at what price enthiusiasm? We are now seeing poor machines which 3 years ago ma ... [Read Article]
