64-1/2 Generator Restoration Source
« on: March 23, 2013, 12:13:58 PM »
I am looking for a source to restore a 1964-1/2 Mustang 260 generator for a concours restoration.  Can anyone recommend someone?
Thanks!
Phil

WOW!! I can't believe that no one has taken a shot at this yet.

I'm certainly NO expert, but if there are no known FORD specialty restorers that can rebuild/restore your generator why not seek out  a Chevy generator rebuilder/restorer.....I'll bet they'd do something very close to what it needs to be.

Go to www.chevytalk.com     and www.trifive.com     I'll bet someone on one of those forums that I personally frequent due to us also having a '57 BelAir......

A hint: when you place a link in your post make sure that there is a space before and after the link so it can be easily "clicked" to go to the link vs. having to copy and paste (in other words read what you wrote before you post). It looks like Miss Grundy in HS English was correct -  ;)

I have found a few of them on eBay and then had an Ink stamp made.

Thanks Jim. point taken. I have the same problem with a HS teacher Miss. Harbough (math) she had dragon breath, bad teeth that caused her to spit on students when she stood behind them looking over their work, my first few days in her class (I came in the middle of the school year) a classmate who hadn't spoken to me before leaned over and told me that HIS Brother was screwing her! (I really didn't need to know that) shortly after that a few of us from the class started skipping class and going to the store across the street for doughnuts--lol

Here's who I used to restore my 260 generator:

Kenneth Seiler
518 Tanglewood Trl.
Buda, TX. 78610

I can send you his email if you want it, he did a great job on mine. He has a generic stamp for the generator which I did not use as mine is an original dual-groove pulley generator for a/c and his stamp was not accurate for this application.
