I have acquired an early Gray & Davis Type G1 Generator (Dynamo). After diligently looking up old reference books, I have discovered that the "Type G-1" spec's list 6-1/2 V, 9 Amperes and 1000 RPM. It took a bit of time, but apparently this generator (dynamo) was originally fitted to the 1913-1914 Chalmers, Models 17, 18 and 19. My unit appears complete, but certainly needs cleaning and internal checking with a complete rebuild probably required. It turns over quite easily, but still requires slightly more effort than ideal. It's quite dirty and cob-webby. Also, as can be seen in the photos, one of the four mounting feet needs some welding/fabrication. Since I do not own a Chalmers, I'd like this to go to a Chalmers parts accumulator (aka "hoarder") or better yet to an owner of a Model 17, 18 or 19. Hopefully it can be of immediate use or kept as a back-up unit. Offered at USD$250, plus shipping or better yet, stop by my vending space at Hershey 2018 (I'll only bring it if somebody wants requests it now) at RED FIELD RWG 30-31, nr. Lamp Post #21.

Pending pick up at Hershey, it appears that the generator has found a new home.
