Has anybody had a CAV d45d 6 volt gear driven dynamo reconditioned? If so who did you use and what sort of price did they charge?
I've got 1 on my restoration project that needs overhauling

Cropmaster generator

Post by prblake » Sat Aug 23, 2014 8:32 pm

Another option is to convert to a 12volt generator. I found the C45 Lucas generator fitted without too much modification. Turned down the pulley shaft and cut a longer keyway and a small turning job allowed the Cav end plate to be fitted to the Lucas generator. You have to fit a new 12 v regulator and bulbs of course but the starter motor will take the extra voltage for starting purposes.

No one has ever noticed my modification and it starts a treat.

That looks fantastic Paul. You should start making them as I'm sure you would sell them easy!
