    I'm back in my busy travel / work season, so not near the lathe right now, so this is by memory.

    If I remember correctly, there is a set screw on the busing to the right of what you have circled....

    Just learned something new... sounds an awful lot like a Hobbs meter in Aircraft. We alway refer to our Heli up time in Hobbs time, even tho most of the newer birds have a non-Hobbs brand hour...

    That brings back a lot of good memories for me. In years past I spent many a summer shooting our olympic hopefuls up there. Many of those training sessions moved to S.A., but a lot of it came back...

    I ended up having to press them out from behind anyways as they where frozen solid on mine and trying to pull up on them with the nut was futile. I do agree if they where not frozen from 80 years of...

    That makes sense. Also explains why all of the pins are drilled a bit off angle. One would think with the thousands of taper pin holes Monarch drilled, they would have devised some jigs to save the...

    I then tightened the plug into the hole on the opposite side of the selector shaft.

    I dont really understand the reasoning of using both set screws and especially the use of the threaded taper pins for this use..... Regardless, they are a #2 pin that I cut down by a ¼" to match the...

    The new larger box for the electronics should be here Monday or so. I plan on tackling the megger testing then. I prefer to do that once everything has its finally crimps on, so no chance for...

    You know, I have been on the fence about buying one of those rethreaded sets for years..... You finally pushed me over the edge and I just ordered one. Turns out Lang makes them for Snapon, etc. but...

    335047
    To install the oil seal on the side, I first dropped the selector shaft in, and slid the seal over it.
    335048
    I then slipped the correct size seal driver over it and used a long socket as a...

    Then the 1-⅝ cutter gets stacked on top.

    I have found the best ways to cut with the hollow punches is to use them in my arbor press. Here is me doing a test with scrap gasket material....

    I used the same technique to do the gasket for the front bearing retainers as well as the side mount oil gauge.
    335031335032335033
    For making gaskets, I really like my Mayhew pro hollow punch set. ...

    While waiting for parts for the generator, I started to work on putting the back gear box back together. Monarch wanted $70 for the front gasket alone. So I decided I will be making my own using...

    To re-install the generator unit, I am using a plywood sled cut out of some scrap baltic birch, Its sitting on top of two 4x6's for clearance.

    I then sat the generator unit on top of the...

    I used a tap to clean out the mounting holes for the Exciter.

    I then removed the bearing caps. The rear bearing cap gets slipped over the rotor.

    And then the snap ring gets...

    Next, I pressed the FAG 6304-c-2hrs bearing into the rear end bell. I have chosen to go with fully sealed bearings after dealing with the grease mess this generator was.

    I then installed the...

    A bunch of the parts I ordered for the Generator finally arrived. Everything is a bit delayed up here right now after I5 was closed due to a land slide south of town after all of the rain we got last...

    congrats! I looked for a I/M unit for a long time before I ended up settling for a round dial. There doesn’t. Seem to be many 10EEs here in the PNW

    My experience so far with Monarch is that some of their prices are quite reasonable and others seem quite a bit out there. For example I inquired about new gaskets for the gear box, $70 for the front...

    I could then focus on the DC side of things. There is a shim stack behind each of the coils. I placed the blued bolts though the case holes and slid the shims on.

    I also got the 3 tabs to mount the gear end cover installed as well.
