Contact me if you want a good generator drive gear pre-installed for you with a new pin) for an additional $20

**NOTE: Adjustments assume the original Ford Cut-out is used. Final fine-adjustment of 3rd brush (charge rate) may be necessary once you get it depending on your car and accessories and is very easy to do. 5A to 7A seems to work for most applications, especially for touring when the car is driven longer distances. If you only drive short distances, 10A might be better in that case to keep the battery fully charged and this is easily changed by moving the 3rd brush once installed in the car. Fun Projects Voltage regulators require different charge rates but can be easily set when this generator is installed in the car using the instructions that come with the regulator.

The Rear Oiler is not used as these generators use permanently sealed bearings. Just let me know if you want one installed as a decoration.

These come with a full 1 Year unconditional warranty included (which starts when you get it).
