  • Information please: replacing generator oil threads

    I have the generator of a 1947 CV on my bench. Among other problems, there is a broken oil thread to one of the bearings. Any advice on replacing it? there is no access to the oil tray from above . . .

    Most likely you have to desolder all pickup wires and then remove the top where all filters are mounted. Beneath it is the oiltray.

      Did this several times....

      Well, if you are in there, take some tweezers and pull on all wicks. If they are weak, they break and have to be replaced. Maybe lot of work, but they won't last forever. The day will come.....

        CV is back together and operational. I managed to pull in a thread, and replace others to sync motor and scanner. Pretty satisfying considering it hasn't run in over 20 years . . .
