        I have been working on automotive generators for some years and have converted
        quite a few to 12v sometimes all you need is
        new field windings. you may need to replace
        the armature depends on your setup. granted that a generator is not as good as an alternator at low speeds but you don't have
        belt problems and everything lines up. your
        local auto electrical rebuilder should be able to do the conversion for you. you will need a 12v regulator to go with your rebuilt
        generator.

        good luck

          Thanks fuzzy, i never thought of that. I didn't think it was an easy task. I know that almost anything is possible, but i didn't conder that an option.

          The funny part about this story is that the work i am doing is for an electrician. He is rebuilding a 1941 Chevrolet truck. He gave up on keepig everything 6 volt when he saw how hard it was going to be to re-man and purchase all the missing part.

          He is doing all this work so the truck will pass a safety check, then he is going to graph in a firebird front frame. What a shame. The truck is in excellent condition. Oh well.
