I am going to be running a 12 volt late 50's era Cadillac generator on my desoto hemi. I like the nostalgic look of a generator and can't afford a powergen.
I found a nice rebuilt generator with a single pulley but I will need a double groove pulley for it. Also, the generator doesn't have a fan by the pulley. Does it need one?
Looking around at all the old alternators that I can steal parts from, none of them has a fan.
I like the looks of a generator too. I would think you don't need a fan on your generator, because either the big fan will provide enough airflow or the lack of fenders and side curtains will bring in enough air circulation.
