Hello,

New to the forum, I am in QLD Australia, does anyone know where to find a generator for my 64 1/2 Mustang. Used condition would be fine. I want to keep the mustang original rather than put on an alternator.

Cheers

They come up every now and then on ebay.
If you can't wait, you can get your Mustang parts supplier to get one in for you that is reconditioned from the States.

Hello. I do not know about Australia, but in the US they sell rebuilt generators at auto parts stores for about $90. You did not say if you have a six or an eight.

O’Reilly’s auto parts has a replacement re-built 30 watt Ultima – Generator, Part # 5838 for a 1965 Mustang 260 or 289 V-8 for $87.99.

See: Ultima 5838 - Generator | O'Reilly Auto Parts

You will need the mounting brackets and a pulley.

A generator has brushes that wear down, but they last a long time and are not terribly difficult to change. They are inexpensive. I bought a pair at O'Reilly for about $5.

Here is the difference in wiring for a generator and alternator:

I like generators. Everyone feels that they have to convert to alternators, but there is no necessity. Cars ran on generators for decades and they work just fine.
