  • A couple of Auto-Lite generator questions

    Reassembling my generator for my 47 Chief and need some info I canít seem to find.

    I thought I had the correct generator tag, but itís marked Syracuse, New York and the ones I see on Geers are showing Toledo, Ohio.

    What generator and bike is the Syracuse one I have for?
    And what do you use to stamp the numbers?

    Also looking for the correct wire to use from the main brush to the cutout. Is it the black-green wire?

    Thanks

    Please, TH47Indy,..

    Don't go stamping numbers unless you are certain it is a repop anyway.

    My Wilson Plank reproduction on the wall says "Toledo", but if yours is, in any way, of the vintage, please do not molest it.

    I refer always to IndianFrank@yahoo.com with all of my Autolite questions,

        Looking for a close up picture of a stamped 1947 Autolite generator tag. And do you know what the numbers indicate?
        Thanks

          You probably have a prestolite generator. I believe ( but not sure) , they bought autolite. A popular replacement generator in the ‘80-90’s
