32e replacement parts

Post by 1951 adam » Thu Jan 24, 2013 9:53 pm

Any recomendations on field coils, bearings and brushes. I went thru my genny , tested the armature, brushes looked OK, The bakeilite washer was bowed in one direction I belive because there were the incorrect shims in place, it shows in my book the shim, bakalite washer, then 2 more shims . I CAN NOT FIND a part number for the bakalite washer?? I would like to replace it, This is my first 32 E rebuild, Any help, Advice greatly aprieciated, Adam

I'm sure someone here can help but Dale Cashman is the Generator guru.

field coils - http://www.jpcycles.com/product/382-044" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, many times the coil are still good, just have to tape the leads.
Bearings - Local bearing supplier, get Jap or American, no chinese
brushes - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Knucklehead-Pan ... 66&vxp=mtr" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Bakeilite washer - Radio shack

when I checked the coils there was an open, but the leads were chewed to hell, I may try and reinstall them and solder some new leads, then re test, NOT a big fan of V twin, jerry, I'll try and make the OE"s work, as for Radio shack, I have a funny feeling the 18 year old behind the counter is not going to know what Bakelite is...by the way JP lists the shims I need at 23 dollars each! What is that all about, must be a mistake, In print and on line, not bag of 10, each.
