i done some work on the generator tonight. bead blasted the end caps and painted the pulley and fan with high temp aluminum. the bearings were in great shape. I’m sure i should replace them as cheap as they are but there is nothing wrong with them. i took the seals out and cleaned them. packed new grease in them and put the seals back in. i need to get a new O ring for the back cap where the bearing goes. the brushes look good so i am just repainting it and cleaning it and it is going back together. i would like to recolor the bolts and pulley and all the little parts but i am just painting the bolt heads and parts. this is going to be a driver so i hate to put the money in coloring all the little parts just to have to do it again in a future quality restoration.
