Generator Question - Help Needed

terrykruegerSeptember 9, 2007

OK I have two Troy-Bilt generators. One runs great - no electric. The other had electric, threw a rod. I wanted to combine them (exact same model) but cannot for the life of me figure out how to separate the generator head from the engine. I ripped one of them down to the armature but couldn't figure it out. Any ideas? The one that was w/o electrical had melted brush holder so I swapped it but still no juice. This is driving me nuts!

Some generator armatures are connected to the engine cracnkshaft via mating conical surfaces. The end of the engine is typically the male cone and the generator the female cone. A small keyway is included and a long bolt through the center of the generator armature holds it to the engine crank. Try loosening the bolt a few turns and while applying a separating force between the armature and cracnkshaft, tap on the center bolt to dislodge the crank.
