  • Electrical: 1932 Studebaker Commander eight - voltage regulator 6 Volt

    Is there a voltage regulator for 6 volts - positive mass for the alternator with three brushes for the 1932 Studebaker Commander eight?
    What is the type? Where can I get this?

    You may get a good response here but the best place for difficult pre-war Studebaker questions is the Antique Studebaker Club Forum:

    Good luck!

      My 1928 service manual shows no regulator is used for three-brush generators. The third brush position, set at the factory and usually not adjusted, determines the generator output. Maximum charging rate is at about 25 mph (40 km/hr). On Remy generators, there is also a thermostat on the generator case set for 160°F ( 71°C). As the temperature of the generator increases to 71°C, the thermostat opens, which places a resistance in series with the field, reducing the charging rate by about 50%. Wagner generators did not have a thermostat.

      If you need to adjust charging rate, moving the third brush in the direction of commutator rotation will increase the rate. Moving the brush against the direction of rotation will decrease the rate. There is a screw on the end plate to hold the brush in position in its slot.

            I believe three brush generators do require a cutout relay to isolate the generator when the engiine is idling or shut off.
            American iron, real old school
            With two tone paint, it sure is cool

            Its got 8 cylinders and uses them all
            With an overdrive that just won't stall

            With a 4 barrel carb and dual exhausts
            With 4.23 gears it can really get lost

            Its got safety belts and I ain't scared
            The brakes are good and the tires are fair.

            Tried to sell her, but got no taker
            I"ll just keep driving my Studebaker
