I see not many responses to this post so I'll throw this out. Have you contacted any of our vendors? Why do you want this item? Is yours rebuildable? How about any local club members? I like alternators and most of my Corvairs have been converted to internally regulated.

I have this chevy generator that can be converted to a Corvair generator by swapping your end frame and Fan onto it. It doesn't look like an abused part.

PM me, if you are interested.

I too find it sad that "everyone" thinks generators are bad juju and throw them away. Then someone actually needs one and they are not to be found. I have many unknown ones on the shelf, but that is 1000 miles from him.

Try a local starter alternator place. They are easy to rebuild if the windings are OK. Shipping a field or armature is half the weight of a whole unit.

Can't just change the end frames on a CW rotation generator. Has to have CCW windings to operate on the Corvair. Armatures can be interchanged but not the field coils.
