Howdy All,

Neophyte to this list that I am, please let me know if this is not
pertinent and/or news. I went to Autozone and ordered up a starter motor
and generator for my '64 yesterday. They came in today, and appear to be
a perfect match (no pulley on the generator). $39.99 for the starter
(part # 16121), and $40.99 for the generator (part number 15017). $10
core each. I will be returning mine for cores, but not right away. Their
computer does not go back far enough, so I had them look up a '68 spit.
I have a water pump on order...I will keep you all posted.

Later!
Dan

Good info! My only comment is that I think you should convert to an alternator.
True, that would force you to do the fuel gauge mod (and might also affect the
radio). But, the original generator is inadequate to keep up with the load at
slow engine speed. Plus, that will let you get rid of the voltage regulator box
(which is a source of RF noise and was always a trouble spot in generator
equipped cars). An alternator will perform better at all RPM, and will be way
more reliable.

I can vouch for the starter- #16121 is correct and is
an exact match. I've had it on mine for over a year.
