    Those are all Commercial only, special order Neece Leeval (sp) Police, Taxi Alternators, We were talking about Prestolite Alternators.

    I tried to find my old 1970's Newman & Altman Catalog to find out how to spell the Brand of Heavy Duty Alternators and Generators Studebaker used, but I do not know where it is now. They had loads of them since no one needed them.

    You can just barely see the TWO EAR Prestolite H.D. 40 Amp. Alt. in this R1 '63 Hawk.
    It also has a different cooling fan on it with a solid flat metal ring (shield) in front of the blades.

    Single ear - you would quickly recognize the double adjusting ear version if you saw one.

    Rich, is this a 'single ear' or a 'double ear'?

    That one was only used on the Jet Thrust Powered Larks, R1 Hawks, Avantis and Zip Vans, in an Avanti with the Three contact Regulator it could put out 40 AMPs, but in Lark/Hawk with the Standard Voltage Regulator (one contact) they only produce the same 35 AMPs as the Standard "One Ear" Model.

    Thanks Jerry, I guess we hear that here every now and then: "You learn something new every day"!
    I have had hands on experience with a whole lot of Studes everything from '54 to '64, but not so much CanadaBakers!

    I now (recently) bought and drive a '66 Cruiser, but knock on wood, it has required very little and I never noticed any difference in it's Prestolite, that might be a good replacement for the weaker ones.

    I remember seeing one on a 60's IH Scout. Don't know if it was original.
