A DC (direct current) generator was used as standard equipment only on the 1962 Chevy II.
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- Disconnect the armature, field terminal, and ground electrical leads from the generator.
- Withdraw the bolt from the generator brace. Detach the fan belt from the generator pulley and lower the generator.
- Withdraw the two generator-to-support bolts and nuts and remove the generator.
- Install the generator by placing it in position and installing the support bracket bolts, lockwashers, and nuts. Tighten the bolts and nuts.
- Position the fan belt on the generator drive pulley. Install the generator brace bolt, but do not fully tighten the bolt.
- While holding the generator away from the engine, measure the deflection of the fan belt at a point midway between the generator and the fan. When the fan belt deflection is 5 / 16 in., tighten the generator brace bolt securely.
- Connect the electrical leads to the generator. Polarize the generator by momentarily connecting a jumper lead between the "gen" and "bat" terminals of the voltage regulator.
