Showing Questions of 13

Two questions: 1.) Does this unit come equipped with both a front and rear bearing? I.E. is the shaft end supported by a bearing that is not visible in the pictures? 2.) Can you tell if the rotor can be easily removed from this unit for machining? I.E. without having to extract press-fit parts or welds? Thanks.

A: We do not have a nonfunctional unit to tear apart to answer those questions, unfortunately.

What's the frame number?

A: These were for a specific OEM application and do not adhere to NEMA frame coding.

What is the length of the shaft splines. FYI a place to find a 1.25 in. 24 T spline slip yoke is dennysdriveshaft.com Dana Spicer 2005008 Companion Flange 24 Spline NEAPCO N3-4-JK04 Pinion Yoke 24 Spline 1350 series

A: The spline length is 1-1/16".

How many teeth on the gear? do you carry A coupler to fit the gear?

A: It is a 24 tooth spline shaft. We do not carry a coupler to mate to it.

can the gen. be hooked up to a bldg. with just the gen and not the cables, only using the to power lugs on top. can you buy the cable ?

A: We do not have any wiring information regarding this generator. We have no access to the cable.

What end of the generator is the CCW rotation viewed from?

A: The direction is looking directly at the end of the shaft.

Can you guys provide / upload picture of the regulator. What is the part number of the regulator?

A: The part number is 20B123-1, by Bendix's Electric Power Division. (That division does not appear to exist any longer)

Is the regulator included and wiring between the regulator and generator?

A: The voltage regulator is included but not the cable with plugs at each end to connect to the generator.

About a bearing ? is there room on the shaft for a bearing and a drive gear ? If so what type would you recomend

A: The most common drive method would be using a jackshaft that is supported by bearings at each end and then directly coupled to the generator shaft.

can you adapt this generator to operate with a pto on a tractor

A: It would be necessary to use a speed increaser to bring the PTO up to 3600 RPM and then provide a bearing at the shaft end of the generator.

Is the regulator included?

A: Yes.

1-What is the rated amps @ 120vac? 2- Is it Brushless? 3- What is the Surge Watts? 4- what is the RPM required to produce the proper wattage or the proper Hz/Voltage? 5-What HP/CC: required produce the proper wattage or the proper Hz/Voltage?

A: At 120 Volts the amperage would be approximately 100. It uses brushes. Sorry no info on any surge capacity. It is to be driven at 3600 RPM. As a general rule it take 2 engine HP for each KW of power developed. So approximately 25 HP for full output.

Is the shaft or the gear 1.25 inch? Does the gear come off or is it part of the shaft?

A: The gear is part of the shaft. The 1.25 is the outside diameter of the gear.
