32E 6V 2 brush conversion

Description: Is there one available that will fit where the original one does? Maybe one that looks factory?

I see in the sticky 32E post that the 3 to 2 brush conversion can be done and still keep the 6v system. I have found the pics in the manual for this, but don't see any info on the regulator.

My gen set is the 32E, and I just finished putting in new brushes, bearings, and seals. The fields and armature tested good with an ohm meter.

Dan!

You can either choose the 74510-47 Duo-Glide mechanical regulator, or a modern solidstate box. Either will have to be relocated.
The easiest, and easiest to hide, is a SS unit on a bracket under the generator.
I have searched for a loophole to allow me to do this conversion AMCA-correctly on one of my '49s, but the -47 regulator came out on singles, thus there is no correct civilian bracket to install it upon a big twin until '58.
(Perhaps there was a police application?)

Thanks for the info Cotten.
I think that I will try again to get the 3 brush going again.
